I did not have the pleasure of knowing Margo, but have had the honor of knowing Adam as he has become part of the Cohen clan. He is one of the finest young men I have met, and is clearly a reflection of his mother, to whom he is so devoted. I extend my condolences to each of you, and am so sorry for your profound loss.

Dear Sam, Dani, Adam and Eitan,
I was so privileged to teach Kindergarten with Margot for five years at Hillel Torah!
She always had a smile on her face, and was always enthusiastic about everything we were doing. Her warmth, friendliness, insight and caring for all our students, was always present! I cherish the memories I have of her!
I know she was proud of each one of your accomplishments!
May all your wonderful memories of Margot help to comfort you during this difficult time!
With much fondness,
