Simchas and Tsuris – In our Community

We Remember:
Our condolences go to Alyse Kirschen on the death of her cousin, Karen Youngerman, who passed away on December 29. Karen was the wife of Stephen and mother of Geoffrey, Bradley and Kimberly. Karen passed away in Riverside after a valiant 13-year struggle with breast cancer.
We are saddened to announce the passing of Adrienne Cohen, who passed away this past week and was laid to rest yesterday, January 8. Adrienne was a long-time youth advisor here at TBT as well as an advisor for the Southern California Federation of Temple Youth (SCFTY). The impact she had on young lives was made evident by the numbers of alumni who attended her funeral to show their respect to this amazing Jewish role model.
