MISHKIN, DR. JACK, It is with great sadness that we mourn the loss of Dr. Jack Mishkin, a devoted and beloved husband who cherished and embraced every day and saw the world through the eyes of a person young at heart. Jack was a loving, caring individual and a proud Jew who was deeply committed to the State of Israel and the health and well-being of its people. This was demonstrated by his magnanimous gift (together with his beloved wife Mildred) that named the Dr. Jack and Mildred Mishkin Geriatric Rehabilitation Center at Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem. Jack was always excited to hear about new, cutting-edge developments taking place at the Hospital and was so proud of its many outstanding accomplishments. He was thrilled that he and Mildred were cherished members of the Shaare Zedek family. Jack was a respected and highly regarded periodontist whose patients became his and Mildred's lifelong friends. Heartfelt condolences to Mildred and his sister Shelly Fleisher. May the entire family be comforted amongst the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem. American Committee for Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem - Murray Laulicht President, Menno Ratzker Chair, Debbie Gold, Southeast Regional Director.
