Birth: May 30, 1932
Lackawanna County

Death: Aug. 1, 2011
Ventura County
California, USA

Congregation Am Hayam is sad to announce the passing of our beloved spiritual leader, Rabbi Gerald H. Hanig, who succumbed to the effects of a virulent post-operative infection.

After years of serving the congregation of Ramat Zion in the San Fernando Valley, Rabbi and his dear wife, Elaine, headed to the coast to settle in Ventura and nurtured the birth of CAH.

In 1995, starting in an old warehouse, moving to the Oxnard Monday Club, CAH found its current home in Ventura, where we celebrated the High Holidays for the first time in 2003.

He was everything to us - Rabbi, Cantor, teacher, friend, advisor, and more. And he did it all with unabashed love and joy. We love you and miss you, Dear Rabbi.
The board and members of CAH.
