Marian S. Garfinkel (1932-2020)
My mother Marian S. Garfinkel died on August 28th, 2020.
Due to the pandemic, we were only able to have a small graveside service. That ceremony took place at 11:00am on August 30th, 2020, at the Roosevelt Memorial Park. It was performed by Rabbi Jeff Schnitzer.
I have set up a FlipGrid website has been set up where people can post 2-minute videos. The website can use the camera built in to your phone or laptop if you allow it. It works best with Google Chrome.
August 2021 Memorial Service
Marian Garfinkel's memorial service has been canceled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the emergence of the delta variant.
Donations in Marian Garfinkel's name can be made to Linden Hall School for Girls in Lititz Pennsylvania, where she taught for two years.
Stories of my mother
I am collecting stories of my mother that I plan to publish in a memoir called (her title), "The Kosher Butcher's Daughter." If you have any such stories, please feel free to email them to me.
I have scanned my mother's dissertation. You can access it here: http://simson.net/ref/1992/MGarfinkel_1992.pdf
