My condolences to you! Your mom (and dad) were among those that welcomed me so graciously into their hearts when I moved to Baltimore and helped me feel at home. May Miriam's memory endure (along with Marty's) as a blessing!

Dear Caren, Donna and families,
Your mother was such a special woman. She was the rock of our congregation, our sisterhood and our Judaica shop. Our bible study group was lucky to have her.
I was privileged to have her as my mentor and friend in WRJ.
My deepest sympathy

Miriam (& Marty) were special people & loved by many at Har Sinai. I am fortunate to be one of them. My parents were lucky to have them as dear friends for many years. Miriam will be missed by many. Sending condolences to all of her family.

Barry and I were so very sorry to learn of Miriam’s passing. She was one of Har Sinai’s leading ladies. Our prayers are with the family today as she joins her beloved Marty. May they be at peace together forever.

Miriam was always such a lovely woman, and was so kind to Louise and I. She must a very special place in heaven, now with Marty. Our hearts are heavy, and sad. We offer the family, and Miriam's closest friends, our most sincerest condolences and loving wishes for a gentle recovery from her passing.

It is difficult to pull words that may express feelings and love at these times. Miriam and Marty were such fun, loving and happy people. I was lucky to have had some time with Miriam and Marty once I met them through Har Sinai. Miriam took good care of Marty and he took care of her. Miriam was the rock. Such a lovely person. Such a loss. I will never forget her. I will always love her.

Dear Donna, Caren and family,
There are no words to express how I feel on your loss. I felt very close with mom and dad. And at least I can say that I was able to chat with mom very recently on my birthday. You know that my deepest and most heartfelt sympathy go out to all of you. You are in my thoughts. May you be comforted by all of the wonderful memories that you have. May her memory be a blessing. She and dad most definitely will be missed.

Miriam was a past president of the Sisterhood of Har Sinai Congregation. She was also a key member of Har Sinai's Bible Study Group. She was a dear friend to many. After her beloved late husband Marty lost his vision Miriam's close friend Eilene Cohen would drive them to services and other synagogue events. When Eilene moved out of state, my husband Ken and I took over that role. Those special times brought us all so much closer. Miriam became a very special friend of mine. One of my fondest memories of her was how she would always give me some of her baked goods to taste. My favorites were her delectable poppy seed (mun) pastry and her honey cake. It is surreal to so many that Miriam is no longer here among us; however, our mourning is lessened somewhat by knowing that she is no longer in pain and that she is with Marty once again. Rest in peace, my friend. You will be sorely missed.
