Baruch Dayan Ha’emet: Majorie Ilene Sachs Stein z”l


Majorie Ilene Sachs Stein (Malka bat Yitzhak Yaakov v’Leah), mother of Linda Loewenstein, died over the weekend and was buried yesterday in Chicago. Majorie was 86 and had suffered for over 20 years with Alzheimer’s.  She is remembered as a very charming woman by all who knew her.
Linda and Mark return to Boulder tomorrow and there will be one night of shiva on Wednesday evening at 7:00 pm at the Loewenstein’s home.
Linda has requested that we do not bring food for the shiva to their home, but thanks us for our offers to do so!  They do not need meals either at this time.
May the neshama of Malka be at peace and may Linda, Mark and all the family receive blessings of strength and comfort among the mourners of Israel.
