Remembering Susan Sharon z''l

Susan Sharon z''l

A moving memorial service was held in the boardroom of Telfed for our beloved Susan Sharon z"l. The service included moving tributes from her colleagues and friends, some of whom worked with her for many years. Dorron Kline, CEO of Telfed, conducted the service in a respectful and meaningful way, and welcomed members of Susan's family to the service. Susan's encyclopedic knowledge of people and events was mentioned by more than one speaker, but it was her utmost commitment to seeing the personal stories behind the requests for assistance that most represented Susan's special way of working.

Her dedication to helping Olim hadashim and students from all walks of life was inspiring to all those who worked with her, and this was a sentiment expressed by all. Her daughter-in-law, Einat, spoke briefly and was overcome with emotion and gratitude to Telfed for honouring Susan in this way.

A light lunch was served - falafel and salads (Susan's favorite), and a short presentation was shown of pictures of Susan throughout her years at Telfed. It was a fitting tribute to a special lady who is missed by so many, but who continues to inspire us to help others in any way we can.
