Herbert Links, 80, died Tuesday, Oct.17.  Born in Vienna, Austria in 1937, he and his parents successfully escaped Hitler's reign and immigrated to the United States in 1939 where Herb grew up in St. Louis, Mo.  Herb attended Baylor University, University of Edinburgh, and Princeton Seminary, where he was outstanding in his field.

Herbert Links

Although his ministry began in St. Louis, he spent 27 years faithfully serving as the pastor and director of the Hebrew Christian Approach to the Jews at 19th & Chestnut Streets in Philadelphia. His love of the Bible all began when he befriended a young man in high school who answered his many questions about life by using Scripture. From the age of 14, Herb knew he was called to preach and share the good news of Jesus the Messiah to his fellow Jewish people.

He was influential in the lives of many folks, had a deep love for his family, loved meeting new people and thoroughly enjoyed traveling the world. His zany and fun-loving personality drew people in immediately.

Herb loved God with all his heart and lived his life to share God’s love with others.  He shared the good news of Jesus, the Messiah, to just everyone he possibly could!  Meeting his Savior face to face was an event he always looked forward to; how happy he must be now.

He is preceded in passing by his beloved wife, Sandra. He is survived by his three daughters, Rachel Kushner, Debbie Podlogar, and Miriam Pappas, their husbands and seven grandchildren.

His memorial service will be held at 1 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 11, at the Narberth Presbyterian Church, 205 Grayling Avenue, Narberth, PA 19072. Burial will be private.
