Richard Levy was a “real Jew,” and a real rabbi

“The man looked like a real Jew!”

That is what first came to mind yesterday, when I learned of the death of Rabbi Richard Levy — former director of the rabbinical school at the Los Angeles campus of Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion; rabbi of the campus synagogue; director of spiritual growth on the campus, past-president of the Central Conference of American Rabbis; a renowned Hillel director; author and liturgist.

I admired Richard greatly.
