Rabbi Shalom Ziskind, 55
Principal of Jewish day school, radio-show host
The son of two Holocaust survivors, Rabbi Shalom Ziskind felt a special calling to teach following generations of Jewish children the importance of embracing and maintaining their religious heritage.
Rabbi Ziskind, 55, of West Rogers Park, principal of Yeshiva Shearis Yisroel, a day school in Chicago, died of colon cancer Wednesday, Aug. 27, in Evanston Hospital.
"He was very dedicated to his students and his school," said his son-in-law, Chaim Schwartz. "He saw it as his singular obligation to re-educate this new generation of American children in their Jewish heritage."
Rabbi Ziskind was born in a displaced persons camp in Hamburg, Germany, where his parents, originally of Poland, had met and married. His family moved to the U.S. and settled in Detroit when he was 8.
Rabbi Ziskind graduated from Mesifta Beth Shraga, a high school in Monsey, N.Y., in 1965. He received degrees from Beth Medrash Govoha in Lakewood, N.J., and was ordained a rabbi in 1977.
He was inspired by his teachers in Detroit to become a rabbi, his son-in-law said.
Rabbi Ziskind was a founder of the Shalom Torah Centers in New Jersey and was dean and founder of the Shalom Torah Academy in East Windsor, N.J.
In 1979 he became the principal of Lakewood Cheder School in New Jersey. He taught at several other schools in Lakewood and Cleveland and became educational director of the Hebrew Academy of Cleveland in 1989.
Rabbi Ziskind married Rivkah Abramowitz on Valentine's Day 1971. He moved to Chicago in 1996 to become the principal of Yeshiva Shearis Yisroel.
He often counseled parents and former students, said Rabbi Moshe Unger, dean of the school.
"He was an outstanding educator and very dedicated," he said.
He had a gift for relating to children, especially troubled ones, his son-in-law said.
"He didn't give up on any kid. It was one of his hallmarks," he said. "He used to say he was once a teacher and once a student."
Rabbi Ziskind hosted "The Torah World in the 21st Century" on the Torah Radio Network. He also taught classes through the Chicago Community Kollel in which he discussed world events and their relationship to Jewish teachings.
Other survivors include his wife; a daughter, Shifra Schwartz; four sons, Eliyahu, Tzvi, Shraga and Avrohom; his parents, Ben and Paula; a sister, Rachael Prosky; a brother, Tzvi; a niece, Annette Friedman; a nephew, Avrohom Prosky; and many grandchildren.
