"It’s hard to believe, but it’s been more than three years since Harriet’s passing. She lives on, however, in our hearts and we know how proud she would be of her children, grandchildren, and great grandson Heath, who is named after her. We also know how proud she would be to know that this fund will enable Jewish women to serve this community that she cherished so much." The Tabak Family
