Amy, we were sad to hear of Norbert's passing. He was one of my heroes. He taught me a lot and we enjoyed visiting with him and you at Beth Sholom. May his memory be a blessing Jeff and Anne Hoodin.

Dear Amy,

Norbert was an amazing person. I cherish the time I spent with him in Philadelphia and I will look back to it fondly for many years to come. Baruch Dayan Ha'Emet.
