It is with profound sadness that we announce the death of Judy Benn after a long illness.
Judy was an integral part of the community and one of the vatikim - the pillars - of Beth Miriam. She was instrumental in starting the Family Affair Committee, served on committees at the temple and was active in all facets of temple life. Judy also created one of the meditation areas of the temple dedicated to her parents on the West side of the building outside the rabbi's office. Her intelligence and love of life will resonate for many years to come.
She is going to be dearly missed by her family, her friends and all those who loved her.
The funeral will take place at Temple Beth Miriam on Thursday morning, May 30 at 11 AM with the interment at the Beth Miriam Cemetery immediately following. Shiva information is not yet available but will be posted on the temple website at www.bethmiriam.org as soon as it becomes known, probably by noon on Wednesday.
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.
