Baruch Dayan Ha’emet: Laura Wolf z”l


Laura Wolf, wife of Jay Wolf, passed away last Thursday night after a long struggle with cancer and MS. Laura was full of love and courage until the very end. The Wolfs were active members of Bonai Shalom for many years and Jay was one of the craftsmen of our portable High Holiday ark.  I officiated at Jacob and Hannah’s Bar and Bat Mitzvah and as they are known by so many, I wanted to make sure to inform the community.
Jay, Jacob, Hannah and other family members will be sitting shiva from 3:00 pm on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and part of Friday and are aiming to say kaddish each day at around 6pm at their home in Boulder.
Strength and comfort to the family along with the mourners of Israel  and peace on Laura’s soul.
