Dorothy Waxman - 15 days ago

Dear Sylvia, Family life may have changed, but I carry fond memories of Rita, from my childhood, visiting you on Park Avenue. Years later, we would meet at the hospital, where she was a busy volunteer. We always had time to chat, and Rita had an everlasting warm smile. May her memory be a blessing, and may you be spared further sorrow. Love, Dorothy (Herscovitch) Waxman

With Rita’s passing, a relationship that began over fifty years ago when a group of high school students ascended the rear steps at the Beth Hillel synagogue under the tutelage of her brother Barney, comes to a crossroad. We became “Barney’s boys” and embarked on adventures that would include a weekly Shabbos minyan, acts of charity and goodwill, and camaraderie. We frequently met at the headquarters on Clanranald before venturing forth where Rita would cheerfully greet us. She would express interest in how were doing at school and our lives in general. Though some of us moved away from Montreal, we maintained our relationship with Rita and Barney as the years passed with a visit here and there, a simcha to share and sometimes just a phone call. Rita and I exchanged recipes and new mystery writers. When I needed a cooking tip from the classic Jewish cookbook, Rita supplied it. When I visited from out of town, she was my companion for Smoked Meat and French Fries. Through the years we became an extended family. We were not only “Barney’s boys” but “Rita’s boys” as well.
