Rabbi Sacks, the Board of Directors and the congregation extend our sympathy to the Lebman family on the passing of Lois Lebman, loving Mother, Grandmother, and Great Grandmother. Lois and Sandy Lebman z”l, were long time members of CAH. Lois served on the Board as treasurer for many years and then remained on the Board as member at large. She was involved in many committees and came to every event we had. Her attitude was always positive, she accepted everyone and her faith was unshakable. She will be missed greatly. May her memory be for a blessing.
