We are deeply saddened by the tragic and untimely loss of Maureen Kendler z’l, who passed away on Friday after a short illness. Our thoughts are with all her family, in particular her husband, Hayden, and her four children. Maureen’s levaya, attended by hundreds from across the spectrum of Jewish life, is a testament to her unique ability to engage and influence.

As Tzedek’s Director of Education (2014-2016), Maureen helped shape our educational message and vision which has influenced thousands of lives. We are privileged to have benefited from the breadth of Maureen’s knowledge and teaching experience and we treasure the memory of Maureen’s presence in the office. Her legacy lives on with us and in our work.

Maureen will be deeply missed by her friends and colleagues at Tzedek.

May her memory forever be a blessing. Baruch dayan ha’emet.
