Miriam Libenson z"l was one of a kind - delightful to be with, always smiling, intellectually curious, culturally gifted, passionately dedicated to her Jewish tradition. Her entire life was a reflection of her profound commitments, and it was no accident that both of her sons dedicated themselves to careers of intensive Jewish communal service. She will be deeply missed by all who had the good fortune to be associated with her during her long and fruitful life.

It was a privilege to know Miriam and I'm moved to be participating in the Shloyshim Radio Program in her memory. My thanks to Mark David and Hasia Segal of The Yiddish Voice for originally bringing me together with such a wonderful person.

Dear Rabbi,
I was saddened to hear about the death of your mother; I'm sure that she was not just a great poet and commentator but a woman of valor...

My best to your entire family.

respectfully,
Janet Pearlman

On Nov. 17, 2004, on the occasion of Shloyshim (30 days) since the passing of our friend and former collaborator on The Yiddish Voice radio show, we will share memories of Miriam and hear recordings of her from past programs. Miriam Libenson was our radio program's resident poet as well as our main commentator on religious and Jewish-holiday matters. Our collection of her recordings are one of the crowns of our show's archives and are played regularly to this day. They were filled with Jewish knowledge, highlighted by memories of her youth in her shtetl Aniksht (Lithuania), and usually accompanied by her own original Yiddish poetry -- she'd written poetry her whole life. She will be greatly missed by all our volunteers and listeners. Most significantly, she was a lifelong friend of our cohost Hasia Segal. Our deepest sympathy to her sons Michael and Eli, and all her family. It is fitting that Hasia will lead the program, and her daughters Ruth and Esther will also take part. Dovid Braun, who is the Yiddish instructor at Harvard University, and Stephen Simons,principle of Mishkan Tefila Hebrew School, and others will also speak in memory of Miriam. The program can be heard in the Boston area and on the Internet, Nov. 17, 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. on WUNR 1600 AM, and via the web: http://yiddishvoice.com
