To Susan & family ........ I met Mania many years ago while being part of the Golden Age Orchestra at the Cummings House. Mania was a true multi talented performer with her singing, dancing, and acting skills. When you think of what she witnessed in her life, growing up in war torn Europe during the Holocaust, living through the horrors and losing so many of her family and friends, it is amazing that she had the will to carry of with her life in addition to want toentertain people .....truely amazing. On a personal level, she was kind to all who her knew her, and was always ready to cheer people up....she will be certainly be missed. Shlomit Dayan and Arta Prenga of our office had a wonderful relationship with her, and will deeply miss her.

I had the profound honour of interviewing Mrs. Grajcar for the Montreal Holocaust Memorial Centre. She spoke beautifully, told her difficult story with strength and grace, and enriched my life by entrusting me with her story. The most inspiring moment cake when I asked her if her children ever asked why they had no grandparents. She told me she answered by singing a song, and asked if she could sing it for me. I sat, riveted, as she closed her eyes and sang in Yiddish. Her voice was spectacular and the emotions welled in me. She opened her eyes and said, “you understand Yiddish?” I replied that no, not very much. She noted that I was in tears - something I had not even been aware of. I told her one did not need to understand the words in order to understand the meaning and emotion behind them. I never forgot that moment. I’ll never forget her. May her memory be a blessing and a comfort to you all.

I was shocked to see Mania’s name among the obituaries today. Mania added so much energy to the concerts at the Shaare’s day program. She loved to dance and make sure that everyone was having a great time. It is said that special souls are taken during the High Holidays! Mania is now dancing in the presence of her forefathers. My sincere condolences to her family. Until we meet again…

Beata Levine - 19 days ago
A dedicated heart like Mania's is very rare to find. It takes a special person to be so kind and talented. I had the honour of working and befriending Mania for many long years at the Open Gate Senior Day Program at the Shaar Hashomayim Synagogue. She never missed a Wednesday, was always prepared with many songs, jokes and dances. A true highlight of the day was the Sing A Long and it was thanks to Manya. Unfortunately, she will be missed by so many who loved her. I will miss her catch up calls on holidays and just chats. She can not be replaced or compared She was a unique volunteer. My deepest condolences on your loss and of those that enjoyed her entertainment and friendship. I will miss her.

It is with a heavy heart that I am sending my condolences to Mania’s Family. I spoke to her on Monday late afternoon to return her Shana Tova wishes. You can imagine my shock when I saw her beautiful picture with her Obituary . I was fortunate enough to spend many years with her every Wednesday at the Shaar Hashomayim at our weekly Open Gate program. She sang, danced and told the best Jewish jokes and was our weekly Entertainer. She adored her children and grandchildren whom she spoke so highly of them and was very proud. She will be missed by all. May the Family be spared further sorrow. 💔
