This week's kiddush, September 9th, Parashat Ki Tavo, is in the memory of Esther Tucker.
Esther Tucker was a member of our Synagogue for a long time. Although she was disabled, she did her best to attend services and classes. She was outgoing, optimistic, and friendly. She always looked at the good in people, and even though resources were tight, would sponsor breakfasts on Sundays.
When Esther was no longer able to live alone, many of us helped her get accepted into the Regency Jewish Heritage Home on Demott Lane. Whenever someone visited her there, she was always cheerful and optimistic.
She passed away last Thursday at the nursing home. She had attended Mincha services and told the nurses she felt tired. They took her back to her room to rest before Maariv services, but she passed away by Maariv.
Because of her financial situation and the lack of family, we are raising money to help sponsor this week's kiddush and to help pay for her funeral and headstone.
Please donate in her memory. Help sponsor this week's kiddush and help pay for her funeral and headstone.
