Baruch Dayan HaEmes

We regret to inform the yeshiva of the passing of Sandra Bender, long devoted friend of Reishit. Together with her husband, Howard, they endowed the Bender Library which talmidim and rabbeim alike enjoy using. The levaya will be Friday and shiva will be observed through Thursday morning in their home, Radnor Road in Bethesda, Md. We express our sincerest condolences to her husband, Howard, and their children Barbara, Julie, Irene and David and their families. Next Wednesday’s Genesis Center Congressional class in the Capitol will be dedicated to her memory.
