Rest in Peace

"It said that with The Andrea and Charles Bronfman Philanthropies, the family has made an indelible mark on Jewish life from Canada to Israel, evoking the deepest values of leadership, charity (tzedakah) and tikkun olam, repairing the world."

I never met them personally, but everyone who worked for Seagram felt as though we knew the Bronfmans. Andrea Bronfman was just 60 years old. She will be greatly missed, but her work will endure for generations to come. My prayers are with Charles, and the rest of the family.

Glorified and sanctified be God's great name throughout the world which He has created according to His will. May He establish His kingdom in your lifetime and during your days, and within the life of the entire House of Israel, speedily and soon; and say, Amen.

May His great name be blessed forever and to all eternity.

Blessed and praised, glorified and exalted, extolled and honored, adored and lauded be the name of the Holy One, blessed be He, beyond all the blessings and hymns, praises and consolations that are ever spoken in the world; and say, Amen.

May there be abundant peace from heaven, and life, for us
and for all Israel; and say, Amen.

He who creates peace in His celestial heights, may He create peace for us and for all Israel; and say, Amen.

I read about the accident that took her life. Very sad.

I hadn't heard! The Bronfman's have a long and fairly illustrious history here in Montreal. What a shame.
