TENDLER--Sifra. The Yeshiva University family expresses its deepest sorrow over the passing of Sifra Tendler, beloved and revered wife of Rabbi Dr. Moshe D. Tendler, Professor of Biology, the Rabbi Isaac and Bella Tendler, Professor of Jewish Medical Ethics at Yeshiva College, and a rosh yeshiva (teacher of Talmud) at YU's Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary.

I extend my most heartfelt condolences to my rebbi, Rav Moshe Tendler, at his time of loss. I owe much of my Torah knowledge to him, and I fondly remember the years I was privileged to sit in his shiur.
May Hashem comfort Rav Tendler, and his family, among the mourners of Zion and Zerusalem

A great lady from a great family. Not only her own family and the Monsey community mourn her, but also her many old friends from the lower east side. The Homnicks
