Stan Musial And Me

01/22/2013
Special To The Jewish Week

The baseball great Stan Musial passed away this week and, with his passing, a piece of my past died, as well.

Allow me to explain. I am named after my great-grandfather, Shmuel Aryeh Poplack. For some reason, however, my father did not like the name Samuel, the corresponding English name for Shmuel.

Rabbi Shmuel Goldin
