    LEVIN of michigan in the house of representatives Tuesday, January 1, 2013 Mr. LEVIN. Mr. Speaker, today funeral services are being held at the Congregation Shaarey Zedek in Southfield, Michigan for its beloved, esteemed Rabbi, Irwin Groner.

    Rabbi Groner served the congregation for over 50 years. He became a continuing source of wisdom and warmth of personality for numerous thousands as he served in various positions in the Jewish community in metropolitan Detroit and beyond. He was active in promoting good will among all faiths in metropolitan Detroit.

    His written works will continue to spread his words of wisdom in books of his sermons and his publications on Torah. Also persevering will be the feelings of the deepest affection among all of us blessed by his friendship.

    In his words: ``Our congregation has prayed together, wept together, rejoiced together, failed together and achieved together.'' Today his congregation and all privileged to know him join in tears for his passing and in prayers of gratitude for his life.

    Our heartfelt condolences go to his wife Leypsa and the entire Groner family.
