Dear Zinnie, Shari, Debbie and Families: We are heartbroken over Lenny’s loss (which I just heard about from family in Toronto. Though it has been decades since we have seen you all, I recall how a genuinely good man he has always been. The family becomes much smaller when we lose our pillars, however, their morals, ways and teachings will always be seen in the younger generations here, and yet to come. Therefore, parts of Lenny will live forever and therefore, the family grows larger. We wish we could be there with you in person during this difficult time. Please accept our most sincere and heartfelt condolences. I know my Mom, Dad and other elders have already welcomed him. Much love and be well.

Dear Zinnie, I understand only too well the devastating effect the loss of Lennie means to you. I extend my heartfelt sympathies to you and your family.I recall wonderful times we had years ago especially in our NCJW study group get togethers. One particular evening stands out when the gathering was at your house in CSL and someone started telling jokes in English and Yiddish. The infectious and spontaneous laughter that erupted was often referred to over the years as “that memorable evening at the Werts.” It is important to focus on the good things at a sad time like this.Once again my sincere condolences to you Zinnie and your family. Pat Kutz

Dear Zinnie, Fifty five years ago, my family and I came from Israel and I worked at the Nursery of the Shaar Hashamaim where I met you. You were so helpful and friendly. I have never forgotten your kindness. I met Len once or twice and he too was always pleasant and welcoming. So many years have gone by…I even remember having Debbie in my class . I send you all my sincere condolences. Losing a lifelong partner is so difficult. I can only say Barukh Dayan Haemet.

Dear Debbie, Stan and I are very sorry to hear about the passing of your Dad. May you have no more sorrow. May his life be for a blessing.

Ellie & Phil Kurtz - 15 days ago

Shock and sorrow. We are totally devastated to hear of Lenny’s death. We are writing this obituary in total sadness. We and Lenny and Zinny go back so many years, during which we had so many good times; going out, and studying together. There was always this rich relationship, always exploring new avenues, and even new restaurants. Everything under the sun was fare game for our relationship. Lenny spoke of his early days in Montreal, after emigrating from Israel, and how he put together a life, rich in meaning and accomplishment. His was a life that anyone would envy. And now, he is gone , but let his memory be an example for others to follow and give life rich in meaning. Goodbye Lenny, we will miss you forever.
