ADATH SHALOM Synagogue and Parsippany-Troy Hills Township honored on Aug. 5 the heroism of Swedish diplomat Raoul Wallenberg by rededicating the “Courage and Compassion” sculpture that stands at Smith Field in Parsippany. The sculpture, a work by Ed Adams, was inspired by Wallenberg, whose letters of immunity saved nearly 100,000 Jews in Budapest during the Holocaust. 

Speakers at the rededication ceremony included Rabbi Moshe Rudin of Adath Shalom, Parsippany Mayor Michael Soriano, Ed Adams, Swedish Consul General Leif Pagrotsky, and Rabbi Andrew Sklarz of Temple Beth Am. Testimony was given by survivor Olga Menczer.
