I was privileged to meet and spend time with Liba z'l and Dovid z'l at the JPL. They made me feel welcome at their beloved institution, and we're always eager to share kindness and wisdom. Their personal warmth and their love of Jewish literature and culture were an inspiration.

Dear Rivka, I was saddened to learn of your mother's recent passing. We last saw one another at the IRB farewell for Brian Goodman (z"l), at which time we spoke about my late father's Holocaust support groups and Mona's health and inability to attend your Outremont HS reunion. Please accept my heartfelt condolences.

David Lazarus - 12 days ago

Dear Rivka, Please accept my condolences. Liba and your late fatherDavid were stalwarts for Yiddishkeit and social justice and I remember both from my days at the Jewish Public Library. I even remember chatting with David when we would board the 165 at the same time on Vezina. So we are all the sadder with Liba gone. Yiddish has lost yet another and a dearly devoted daughter has lost a mother...

Greta Hofmann Nemiroff - 14 days ago

Dear Rivke: I remember having a Chinese dinner on Queen Mary with you, your mother, and Judith. Your mother didn't say much. Nonetheless, one could feel her strength and the integrity of her presence. Much as one feels the end of a beloved person coming, it is impossible to be fully prepared for the sadness it brings. It will be a comfort, I hope, to know that you were an true support and to her right to the end. And of course you carry within you , I am sure, not only memories but parts of her personality and character. I send you my heartfelt condolences, Rivke.

Paula Minsky Bultz - 15 days ago

Dear Rivka I am so sorry for your loss and so saddened to hear of your mother's death. She is such a great loss to the Jewish Community of Montreal, the Survivor Community and those who follow with whom she shared memories and taught about the vibrant Jewish life in pre-war Vilna also known as Little Jerusalem which says it all. I grew up on stories my mother told about the Iglefeld family especially the Warsaw connection. I know that I and everyone who knew her personally or had contact with her through the Jewish Community will miss her so very much. She left such a strong imprint on whoever heard her speak with such passion and conviction in beautiful Yiddish with the Vilna accent . I hope that the legacy she left will keep her memory alive for all. Please accept my heartfelt condolences. Paula Minsky Bultz

Carolyn Steinman - 15 days ago
