The Cahana Family - 17 days ago

Dear Hockenstein Family— We have been so touched over the years by your family— your parents’ individual contributions to individual lives and the community. And then, to have witnessed the way in which you rallied around your father, particularly during the Pandemic— and ensuring others benefited as well exemplifies how you translated the Jewish and humanistic values that were modelled into action. May the keter Shem tov of your family bring solace as you traverse the path of grief. Baruch Dayan HaEmet. Rabbi Ronnie, Karen, Kitra, Briah and the rest of the Cahana Family

Dear Jeremy, Robie, Brian, and extended family,My sincerest condolences on your father Michael's passing. He was President of Congregation Beth Tikvah immediately after me, so we worked together, closely, for years prior and after his presidency. He was a wonderful friend, always curious and always seeking answers to problems. He was a teacher and he loved learning and studying, and he could discuss issues with you from different perspectives. These past years have been very difficult for Michael, and for you, his family. I hope that your many wonderful memories from his healthy days will bring you comfort I will miss him, and I'll always think of him.

Herb Friedberg - 21 days ago

DearcHockenstein Family: I've knownMichael forever. I looked forward tomhave lunch or supper with our longtime friend Noem TepperZ"l agreat friend of both of us. Michael taught me to play golf or tried anyway. I remember hims speaking at my late son Yehoshua's Memorial service. Both of us were nervous and devastated. Michael knew when someone is suffering such a great loss SAY nothing. We had differing opinions on many subjects but respected each other. Both of our wives were undergoing chemotherapy at the same time and we tried our best to remain upbeat. I will miss him and his sage advice. After suffering for so many years, I am sure he is in a better place now. It is difficult to lose friends you've known a lifetime. BDE.

Nick Pfefer - 22 days ago

Dear Hockenstein Family…..I was very saddened to learn of the passing of Michael….I first met Michael as a member of Bonaventure Lodge of B’nai Brith, when he was in his early twenties and was ahead of his time, having created, built up and sold a “then high tech” computer business….I was later fortunate to have had the experience of planning a business with Michael, when we were both at crossroads in our careers….And although circumstances interrupted our plans…I am thankful for the sojourn, which gave me the opportunity to befriend a very special person….Michael was an entrepreneur par excellence…always involved in several different businesses at the same time….Just to be in his presence was a learning experience, as his mind was always racing, digging for novel ideas, and conveying his thoughts at a high decibel level as if he was using a megaphone…always with his great passion for everything that he applied himself to, with strong ethics and integrity….He will be greatly missed, but his memory will live forever…My deepest condolences to his family…..Nick Pfefer

Zavie and Harriet Levine - 23 days ago

Dear Family The Hock was a unique individual and a great friend to have. It was truly unfortunate that his health had so deteriorated over the last few years. His energy was tapped; his brilliant mind was affected. I prefer to reminisce about the earlier years when we coached together, played softball and golf together, socialized very often with our families. He loved to schmooze and , in so doing, expressed an intelligent opinion on virtually every topic. Whenever and whatever you needed , he was there unconditionally. May he rest in peace with his beloved Esther. With the passing of the Hock, an era ends.
