Passed away peacefully at home on May 8, 2014, after a long and courageous struggle with Huntington's Disease. She was born May 21, 1956, to Elaine and Gerald Yudkin and grew up in North Haven, CT.
A graduate of Yale University in 1978, Marjorie received rabbinic ordination from Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in 1983. She served as the rabbi for Reform synagogues in Rye, NY, Easton and West Chester, PA, as well as Lafayette College Hillel and Princeton University Hillel. She took pride and pleasure in leading services, teaching children, and interfaith work. Forced by illness to retire in 2002, Marjorie continued to enjoy the simple pleasures of friends and family, music, food and nature.
Her memory is celebrated by her husband Randy Tiffany, her daughters Shira Yudkin Tiffany and Talia Yudkin Tiffany, her mother Elaine Yudkin, her brother David Yudkin and by the many other family members, friends and caregivers who knew and loved her. She endured the loss of her father and her sister Marisa Yudkin.
