Akron (JTA) — Dr. Judith
Resnick, who died Jan. 28 in the
Challenger space shuttle with
six astronaut colleagues, was
eulogized at a Friday memorial
service at Akron's Temple Israel
as "a daring pioneering spirit"
who heard and heeded the call
to "go upward, climb higher,
touch the stars."
Rabbi Abraham Feffer,
spiritual leader of Temple Beth
El where Resnick was bat
mitzvah and confirmed — told
the 850 participants in the serv-
ice that "she achieved what she
had worked for and died doing
what she loved best ... She left
us many achievements and
much love."
Feffer said that before her
first space flight in 1984, Re-
snick had stopped at his office
with her father, asking for a
blessing. • "I prayed the tradi-
tional Jewish prayer — "As she
goes in peace, so may she return
in peace."
Beginning his eulogy with a
two-line quote from Mannah
Senesch's famous poem, "Blessed
is the Match," the rabbi said
that Resnick "felt the need to
extend the horizons of America
and the world, to reach great
heights, and to enhance life on
this planet Earth ... She was
the match and the 'flame in
which she was consumed."
Feffer called Resnick "bril7
liant, sensitive and compassion-
ate. He said she had "an inner
beauty — the beauty of a sensi-
tive soul and a loving heart." A
gifted musician when she played
the piano, "there was more than
technical mastery — you were
privileged to hear her poetic
spirit expressing itself," he said.
Although he had first met Re-
snick only when he officiated at
her wedding in 1970, he had
heard from her teachers that
she had graduated Akron's
Firestone High School with a
4.2 average, and that she was at
the "top of her bat mitzvah
class" of 1962 and her confirma-
tion class of 1967 at Temple
Beth El. '

In June 1984, Resnick, then
35, became the second woman to
go into space. She and five male
crew members of the orbiter
Discovery were on a seven-day
scientific mission. Born in
Cleveland, she grew up in
Akron and earned a bachelor's
degree in electrical engineering
at Carnegie-Mellon University
in 1970. She was subsequently
employed as a design engineer
by RCA and worked on several
NASA projects.
From 1974-77, Resnick was a
biomedical engineer and staff
Fellow in the Laboratory of
Neurophysiology at the National
Institutes of Health in Bethesda,
Md. In 1977 she received a doc-
torate in electrical engineering
from the University of Mary-
land.
Before her selection by NASA
for space flight training in 1978,
she was a senior systems
engineer in product development
with the Zerox Corp. at El
Segundo, Calif. After completing
her year's training as an as-
tronaut, she worked on projects
related to development of orbiter
Discovery.
Resnick's paternal grand-
parents came from Kiev. They
left Russia in the late 1920s and
settled in Palestine before com-
ing to the U.S. Her father
attended a yeshiva in Palestine.
Her family moved to Cleve-
land where her grandfather,
Jacob, was a shochet, and her
grandmother, Anna, worked for
Jewish organizations. Her
father, Dr. Marvin Resnick, was
active in many Jewish causes.
Resnick was a "goal-oriented
person," Rabbi Feffer told the
memorial service. "It was as if
she heard an inner voice con-
stantly challenging her to
greater achievements."
Although he believed her
synagogue attendance after
leaving Akron was "irregular,"
Resnick's "integrity, her forth-
rightness and commitment to
truth was such that I wish
many of those who do attend
