Greg Lipper - 29 days ago

Dear Betty, Eric, Barry, Susan, Judy and all the grandkids, in-laws and extended family members: My sincere sympathies as you mourn the loss of Carl, the family patriarch. I know during these extreme times, it difficult beyond words to mourn without the comforting Jewish traditions and rituals that help with healing and closure, that bring together family and friends, that enable the retelling of stories and relationships. I have known Carl from the time Eric and I became good friends at Herzliah High School. Because Eric worked closely with Carl for so long, I got to see Carl a lot, and I got to hear stories about him almost every week. Carl for me will always be the wise, insightful, thoughtful CHACHAM GADOL with the piercing eyes that told me he probably knew what I was thinking and what I was going to say before I said it. I know Carl provided Eric with a role model and father-son relationship that is so rare in this world. And I know he cared about family and Judaism in such a deep, visceral way, and that the caring and values Carl preached have passed down to his children and grandchildren. I am sorry I cannot sit shiva with you, and I will honor Carl's memory privately this week.

Anna and Joe Mendel - 29 days ago

Dear Betty and family: Carl’s contributions and leadership to the Jewish community, Israel, and others has been stellar. Because he was a very quiet, humble and modest man, most people won’t know the extend or enormity of his charity and “behind the scenes” work. He was very sweet, kind, compassionate, intellectually brilliant, and is among the righteous. I have fond memories of Carl (Carly) and Big Toba. It’s difficult to think of Carl “in the past," his soul lives on. May your family be comforted in your special memories of Carl, the love and bond you share as a family, and may you be comforted among the other mourners of Zion and Yerushalayim.
