I think of Paul every time that I sing Adon ‘Olam—which is to say, every day, because it was he who stressed the hymn’s meaning to me as a child, and thereby introduced much more of Jewish tradition. I will always remember him as Dr. Poppers, a man of many and great professional accomplishments, of course, but also as the Gabbai, a man whose personal dignity and communal concern communicated Jewish history and heritage as few words could.
