For the fifteen years I served as Cantor of Beth Israel, Monte was my dermatologist. He was always caring, empathetic, upbeat...and a damned good dermatologist, too! It was my pleasure to prepare Richard for his bar mitzvah. Monte was SO PROUD! My sincerest condolences to the whole family.

Prayers for the family as I know he will be missed. He was my dermatologist over 40 years ago. He was caring and helpful. Years later, I brought all of my children to see him. They all liked him as well. You don’t find many doctors like him any more. May God comfort his loved ones as they mourn. May his memory be a blessing.

Mindy, Mark, Audrey and Family,
I never did have the opportunity to meet your father, grandfather, although I always heard wonderful and beautiful things about him with "Family" being the most important to him. Please know we are thinking and praying for you during this difficult time. Out deepest sympathies to you and your family.

Monte was more than a cousin, but a true friend. He was kind and gentle. We lived in different states growing up but we shared visits and stayed close. Family was always first - Aunts, Uncles, cousins etc. His life is a reflection in his children. They are all loving and caring people just as he was. He will be sorely missed. Love, Linda and Gary

I am so deeply sorry to hear of Monte’s death. What a terrible loss and what a wonderful and richly evocative service; thank you for sharing, virtually, during these strange and often disconnected times.

As one of the faraway cousins, I remember so well the warm embrace of family at the other end of the long drive on I95 from NYC when we would come down for one of the series of bnai mitzvah in the ? 1970’s – especially at Monte and Abby’s house. That feeling of welcome, and easy warmth and kindness (also, the smell memory of baked blintzes at brunch) still nourishes all these many years later.

Matthew and I hadn’t realized our Grandma Libby had given Monte his ‘name’ (or that we were not the only ones whose dad letters arrived on yellow legal paper!). We last saw Monte and Abby in 2010 at my parents’ ‘200th’ (50y of marriage + ages 72.5 + 77.5); it was such a wonderful treat and so (fittingly) generous for them to have made the trip.

I hope that peace finds you and your families in this difficult time and that comfort in your warm and wonderful memories eases the pain.

To the Silverstein family,
I am so very sorry for your loss. I have fond memories driving in the fancy van with swivel seats, while singing the "Silly Silverstein" song with the entire clan on our way down to Ocean City, MD. I loved visiting your home and being with all of you. Your dad was so warm and kind. My heart and thoughts are with each and every one of you. Lots of love, Stacy

Monte was always present, living in the moment, giving his full attention to whomever he was speaking. They became the most important and interesting person in the room. That is how he made you feel. An intelligent man who could find a common language to include and engage all. He was calm, he was kind and more importantly, he cared. He will be missed.

Mindy, Richard, Fran, Vicky & Family before Mindy became my first and best friend in my new home in Pikesville, Dr. Silverstein was my dermatologist. He was funny, kind and the epitome of what a doctor should be. I loved him. So when your family welcomed me into your home for more sleepovers, swim parties and countless afternoons I felt like you were my second home. So many memories of eating and cooking in your kitchen and your dad wandering through for a funny comment and huge smile. My childhood is full of Silverstein memories. He will me missed. My heart and thoughts are with you all. I wish we could celebrate his life in person. I will see you at the virtual service. Much love to all!!!

Dear Fran,Vicky,Mindy,Richard, So very sorry to learn of the passing of your very dear father. We became friendly with your parents at the University of Maryland. Monte was a fraternity brother of Gene, and Abby was a sorority sister of mine. We became good friends and our families shared many happy occasions together. Gene, spoke often, and fondly of Monte’s brothers, Eli and Louie and their parents who had a store and house in Haver de Grace (spell?). I am deeply saddened by Monte’s passing and extend my very deep condolence. I know that his memory will ever be a loving legacy. Most fondly, Jean

Fran, Vicki, Mindy and Richard,
My heartfelt condolence on the loss of your father. He was a wonderful person, son, husband, father, grandfather, brother and doctor. I will never forget him for the wonderful family man that he was, but mainly for saving my Aunt's life. She had a very rare disease and your father diagnosed it and treated it immediately. May you find comfort in all the wonderful memories and stories of him that you will hear and treasure. May his blessing be a memory.

We have wonderful memories of your dad and of you all...houses apart on Kathydale Road, kids’ playmates, our long ago move to Buffalo and your visit here, and all good things approaching 60 years. (Amusing...I often think of Monte piercing my ears.) The family photos online are beautiful. Our sincere condolences at this sad time to each of you with fondness, Marvin, Marcie, Janet Susan and Glenn Frankel

Minda, Fran, Vicky and Richard,
Your family has always been such a part of ours - going back as far as the Grand Canyon, not to mention shared universities and sororities through multiple generations. We loved your parents as our own. We know that you are blessed with so many wonderful memories . We hope they carry you through this sad time.

to the Silverstein family,

We knew your father and brother for many years. He was our family's dermatologist for about 40 years, and that meant he was a friend. He always greeted Nadine with "how is the mother of 3 boys?", and she would respond and ask about his group. His care and manner remain irreplaceable; he was one of a kind. We talked at Beth Israel, socialized with friends we shared, and always with a smile. He will be missed.

Dear Eli and Louis and families; Your brother was also my Dr. and yes he was patient and kind; but just look to your families and know you are all that way. I think I remember being told that he did NOT go to Camp Saginaw, but we all did. Wishing you all good memories.

We are so sorry to hear of Monte’s passing. He was such a great guy, a real “mench”! We have so many fond memories, from med school to visits, parties, dances and reunions! He was our dermatologist for years, pierced Ruth’s ears back in the 70’s. We have known Monte since 1956 when he started University of Maryland Medical School with Jerry. It was also Abby and Monte that connected us with the Susels; Richard became Jerry’s long time partner. Abby and Monte always talked about your fabulous trips to Florida every Christmas holiday. Cherish all the wonderful memories! So many memories! May his memory be for a blessing to all of you kids and your families.

Dr Silverstein was our family dermatologist for close to 30 years. He was a wonderful , caring physician and so easy to talk to. We had the utmost of respect for him. He was old school, but knew his stuff, as they say. He will be greatly missed.

Very sorry for this loss I was his patient. He was an excellent dermatologist. I went to him for a brief time because my previous dermatologist also died. I am sorry I did not go to him sooner. He also spoke to me when I was at the Giant Food store. He always had sample of medicines to give to me like my previous dermatologist. All dermatologists should learn from this doctor. He took the time to talk & explain your problem He always squeezed me in emergencies if he was booked. Doctors today do not do this. He was not always about collecting money. He was willing to work with me not like doctors today. He was also the dermatologist for my son, my husband and my mother.
