Last night, February 19, Anson Rainey passed away due to pancreal cancer. You might know him as one of the two authors of The Sacred Bridge which I highly recommend reading. Many of his accomplishments and publications can be seen on the Tel Aviv University website.
I am blessed that I had the honor of being one of his students and of completing some of my graduate thesis work with him. Thank you to those of you who have kept him in your prayers.
