Dearest Marina … I feel lost for words to summarise your invaluable contribution and the important part you have granted to future generations by your guidance, by your strength of character, generosity of spirit and your example of what the morality of religion should mean to people of all faiths. Your love, your training in education, your instinctive understanding and insight of human nature have inspired the vision of your sons to create the special significance of Beth Shalom, not just for the survivors of the Shoah but for all humanity…. The creation of Aegis was just a natural follow-up of your teachings. How could humanity remain indifferent to our cruel world where evil and hate continue all around us? Dearest Marina…. You are an exceptional human being…. it is my privilege to have had the opportunity of knowing you.
