Our condolences are with the family of Dr. Faith Lessig who passed away after a long illness in Cherry Hill on Saturday, May 18th.
Faith was a remarkable woman. She served on the board for several years, served as Religious School Committee chair, a bar/bat mitzvah tutor and offered her beach for our Shabbat on the Beach each summer. She was a professional educator and principal at a middle school in Jackson. She leaves behind her loving family, her colleagues and many, many friends here on the Jersey Shore. She will be sorely missed.
The funeral is on Tuesday, May 21 at the Platt Memorial Chapel in Cherry Hall. The interment will take place at Locustwood Cemetery. Shiva will run through Thursday at Faith's home at 2009 Morris Drive, Cherry Hill, NJ 08003 with minyan at 7 PM.
May her soul be bound up in the bonds of life and may those who mourn her loss be comforted among all the mourners in Zion and Jerusalem.
