Thank you for sharing Stephen with us. He was a beautiful person, and a real mench. I am grateful for my interactions with him over the years at Temple Israel. He was the president of the board of directors when I was on the board, and his dedication and commitment was evident. I loved how he would bring in Ellen's delicious baking and would love it when I went back for seconds and sometimes thirds. We bonded over our love of dogs, and when our beloved Lloyd passed away and I started tearing up during our conversation, he too started tearing up. I was shocked and saddened to hear of his sudden passing, and my heart hurts for his family and loved ones. We will miss him dearly.

Stephen Schneiderman - 13 days ago

I was very sorry to learn of the passing of Steve. As the former CEO of the Bess and Moe Greenberg Family Hillel Lodge, Ottawa’s only Jewish Long-term care facility, I had the privilege of meeting Steve, who proudly worked alongside the Knights of Pythias to make the days of the Lodge’s elderly residents a little brighter and a little better. I can personally attest to Steve’s kindness and quiet leadership. He was a real mench. We all want to make a difference in life. Steve did. My deepest sympathy to his family and everyone who knew and cared about him.

Dear Ellen & daughters, As a young child my family and Stephen’s were very close. His father William and my dad Gerald Steinhart came over to Canada from Europe just after the war and they were interned in Ville LaSalle for a few years until they settled into their new surroundings.After they married and had children, we spent many wonderful times together. Stephen and Allen were like our brothers. Hope the many wonderful memories you have cherished will comfort you at this difficult time. I send my deepest condolences.
