Benji Lovitt

Beautiful, Esther. We are all thinking of you.

That was a beautifully written piece and may your mother's spirit live on in your work and all the great you do in this world and for our community.

estherle, so moving and so true

Rabbi Paul Kipnes

Beautiful. Since this is merely a taste of her gifts to her family and our world, then her memory is surely for a blessing


She was obviously a very special lady. You are very lucky to have her as your mother and role model.

Sorry for your loss...

Esther,I just read this and tears ran down my face. Your mom was such an inspirational woman ( i am so thankful to have met her that brief moment at your brother's) who taught so many valuable lessons. Her memory should be for a blessing as each of you recount so many wonderful memories and her countless words of advice. I will think of her as I bake challah each and every week. Thinking of you and your family during such a difficult time.


Esther, I'm sorry for your loss. Thanks for the memories here. Brighter moments, VJ

So sorry for your loss.
Today marks 2 years since my Mom passed away- the loss is still so intense. As a tribute to her, I recently launched to help Jewish families and their friends find information, resources and "connect" at a most difficult time. The site is free for all to use, including a "shiva Registry" to privately post funeral & shiva information, organize the food for each day, make donations directly to charitites and receive an emailed Yahrzeit Reminder.
