A dear woman, our good friend, Karen Kremerman, passed away earlier this year from a serious illness.
Karen helped set up the friendship organization of Elem and led it for many years. In her social activism Karen connected between her love for cooking at the Lilit restaurant at Beit Asya, esthetics and social priorities. Several years ago she gave it as a gift to Elem. In her generosity, Karen helped many NGOs, and mainly people. She had a unique social outlook, which was ground-breaking in her initiative and ability to strengthen social goals in Israel.
Karen opened her home and heart to NGO and connected widespread circles into social involvement and action. Karen is a model of a warm Jewish lady who emigrated from the USA to Israel, where she raised her family. Karen became a grandmother only several months ago.
We believe that Karen’s many family members and friends will continue on the path that she paved for them throughout her life. Her heritage and spirit affected, and will continue to throb, in the organizations she supported so intensively and her flag of social needs and equality will fly high amongst those in whom she always believed.
After Karen’s passing, her dear family continued her wonderful work and made a generous donation in her memory to Jewish Projects, which was distributed to:
||Yad Ezra V’Shulamit|
||The Jewish community in Cherkassy, Ukraine|
