Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn Passes

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn: December 11, 1918 – August 3, 2008

There is a great deal to admire in Alexander Solzhenitsyn and his work over so many years, but I recently became aware that he had married a Judaic woman and raised his children from that marriage in Judaism.

To say the least, this is difficult for me to reconcile with the hagiography attached to the man.

    Interestingly enough, he reposed on the feast day of the Prophet Ezekiel (Julian Calendar).
