Remembering Anita Redner z"l

My Mother of Blessed Memory

By Rebecca Redner

My mom never seemed to sit still for very long.  She worked full time caring for students at Schechter for over two decades, and then devoted her evenings and weekends to nursing ill neighbors, visiting elderly members of our synagogue, tutoring adult b'nei-mitzvah students, teaching adult education classes, attending Synagogue Council meetings, and much more.  She even kept a kippah in every one of her handbags just in case she was called upon to attend a shiva minyan while she was out running errands.  Her death was a wrenching loss not only to the people who knew and loved her, but to the Boston Jewish community that she served with such energy and enthusiasm.  She did so much; how could we possibly manage without her?
