Ted Mauch and "RUAH"

In my last blog post I linked to some online materials by a current Trinity College faculty member, Seth Sanders. By some coincidence, I've just received a lovely email from a Massachusetts based musician who knew a another Trinity College Hebrew Bible professor of a former generation, Ted Mauch. I have blogged on Ted Mauch before (e.g., click here). As the musician, Jeff Snow, wrote to me: "Ted touched a lot of lives--he was one of the very best."

Jeff Snow came up with a tune one evening as he spent time with Ted Mauch, and he named the tune "RUAH," which was Ted's licence plate number. It is a great story, and I recommend reading the whole thing at Jeff Snow's website (click here).
