efore Petr Ginz, 14, was murdered by the Nazis at Auschwitz in
1944, he drew a picture of how the Earth might look from the moon.
Israel's first astronaut, Col. Ilan Ramon, had the pencil drawing with
him aboard the space shuttle Columbia.
When the shuttle broke up in flames en route to Cape Canaveral after 16
days of space experiments, we mourned for Col. Ramon and his six fellow
space explorers and grieved for their families. We thought about their courage
and their service — and what they meant to their homelands.
But we also thought about Petr, who was never given the chance to ride
above the Earth or blaze his name across history's sky. Petr Ginz and Col.
Ramon are united again in the everlasting annals of the Jewish nation.
A Houston memorial ceremony for the seven astronauts Tuesday opened
with the words of Hebrew poet Haim Nahman Bialik: "Oh, they had one
more melody, and now that melody is lost, lost forever."
When the Columbia disintegrated 16 minutes before touchdown Shabbat
morning, a part of each person who joined in the sorrow seemed to die.

Shabbat Shalom.
