The JRI-Poland family is saddened in learning of the passing of Phyllis Kramer z"l, a long-time friend of and volunteer for our organization.
Others have rightly lauded her devotion to Jewish family history and genealogy, and her efforts to help on many levels. Phyllis truly set a high mark and left a legacy that we might all try to emulate in one way or another, to the best of our ability.
On a personal level, I have been a witness to Phyllis' passion, intelligence and bottomless commitment for and to the Jewish genealogical world, serving with her on an advisory board, working on a few of her educational projects and, of course, as a JRI-Poland town leader. I will miss the sparkle in her eyes and those warm hugs at the annual conferences.
May the memory of Phyllis be for a blessing.
