Yeshivath Beth Yehudah

take this opportunity to express their deep anguish
and pain to our dear Vice President Mr. Jack Carmen

and his dear wife Ethel on the loss of their beloved
daughter and our alumnus,

Marilyn, of blessed memory.
Her humility, her warmth, her kindness, her devotion
to - noble causes, and her God fearing qualities will
serve as an everlasting inspiration in the hearts of
all those who knew her.

May Heaven grant the stricken family the strength
that only He can give to carry their heavy burden.
May the Almighty search deeply into his storehouse of
infinite healing power, to bring comfort, solace and
peace to our bereaved friends.

May you be consoled together with the mourners of
Zion and Jerusalem.
