Remembering Dame Te Atairangikaahu

The New Zealand Jewish Council

Remembering Dame Te Atairangikaahu

It is with deep sadness that the New Zealand Jewish Community marks the passing
of Dame Te Atairangikaahu and the huge loss to Maoridom of a much loved and
loving Queen.

We join the nation and the country in our grief for a woman of great worth and
dignity who we were honoured to host at the Synagogue in Auckland , and who
joined us at a Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year) ceremony at Parliament.

To her Family, Tainui and the Maori people, in the words of the ancient Hebrew
memorial prayer El Malei Rachamin "May G-d.of Compassion gather her in the
shelter of your wings and may her soul be bound in the bond of life."
