programs at the synagogue,
many of which reflected the
Adlers' dedication to Jewish
education. These include the
establishment of a nursery
class, a kindergarten and
courses for adults.
Rabbi Irwin Groner of
Shaarey Zedek remembered
Mrs. Adler as "a helpmate
and partner to her husband,
sharing fully in his life." At
the same time, she was
"very much her own person,
reaching out to others with
her zest, wisdom and warm-
th."
Mrs. Adler accompanied
her husband when he served
as an armed forces chaplain
during World War II. Sta-
tioned in Utica, Rabbi Adler
led services for patients and
counseled wounded soldiers
and their families. His wife
coordinated classes for chil-
dren of military personnel.
Mrs. Adler also was by her
husband's side after he was
mortally wounded while
leading a Shabbat service on
March 11, 1966. The killer
was a young man the rabbi
had been counseling.
Only days before, Mrs.
Adler had sat beside her
husband in the early morn-
ing as he read her a poem,
dedicated to several young
Jews who had died. It read in
part,

Shall I cry out in anger, 0
God,
Because Thy gifts are mine
but for awhile...
What Thou givest 0 Lord,
Thou takest not away,
And bounties once granted
Shed their radiance- ever-
more.
"If a rabbi was putting
together a wish list of the
kind of woman he would
want to marry, Goldie was
it," Mrs. Snider said. "But
she was always her own per-
son, never just the rabbi's
wife.' I think that's why the
rabbi loved her so much."
Throughout her life, Mrs.
Adler would become in-
volved with countless
groups, but she continued to
make Shaarey Zedek a
priority until her death.

She was a volunteer in the
synagogue's nursery school
and consecration classes,
and gave numerous book re-
views, called "Book of the
Brunch Club," that con-
sistently attracted large au-
diences. More than 1,200
men and women attended
one 1963 "Book of the Brun-
ch" gathering.
She taught classes in
Torah, hosted Shaarey
Zedek retreats, and present-
ed cooking classes for the
sisterhood. Her specialties
included salads, kugels and
