Berta Fritz
Sponsor David Goldman: “In Loving Memory of Bertha Fritz. “This is a picture of my grandmother, Bertha Fritz, graduating from Law School – in the 40’s! (Needless to say, a time where almost no women were lawyers). She did this while raising 4 children and running a business that she founded from saving money working at her brother’s department store. Most people struggle with the “who do you admire most” question. I don’t. It was grandma.”
Fae Asher
Sponsor Terry Kraus: In memory of Fae Asher “Fae was so kind to me from the beginning. She was a model of grace and dignity and a fountain of information about our congregants, caring so much about each one.”
Werner Gleitzman
Sponsor Terry Kraus: In memory of Werner Gleitzman “For decades, Werner ushered Saturday morning and High Holy Day services. He loved the music and sanctity of the service, and felt strongly that standards of behavior in the Main Sanctuary should be upheld.”
Stephen Mittel
Sponsor Terry Kraus:  In memory of Stephen Mittel  “Stephen was a funny, generous, lovable soul, lost to us far too soon. Known for his colorful eyewear, Stephen lit up a room when he entered.”
