We send our condolences to Adrienne Rosen, Myra White and Sally Rosenwhite upon the death of Alana Rosenwhite, their beloved daughter and sister.  

Adrienne and Myra were part of the five-women group that founded Congregation Shir Libeynu more than two decades ago.  Our shul is grateful to them for the many ways they enriched and strengthened our community.  We share in their heartbreak over the tragic and untimely loss of their daughter, and we send our love and support.  May Alana's memory be a blessing.
