With deep sorrow, the world-wide Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem Family mourns the loss of Lee Weinbach a”h, a driven leader and an extraordinarily dedicated, talented and hard-working individual who was so deeply cherished by her friends and loving family.
As President of Shaare Zedek’s National Women’s Division for many decades, Lee worked side by side, first with Erica Jesselson a”h, and then with countless other outstanding lay leaders employing her flair and elegance to build and develop our Women’s Division into a vital and thriving component of the American Committee. After her family, Lee’s true love was Shaare Zedek and that came across very clearly in every event and relationship she established.
She was generous and kind, bold and visionary and through her passion, inspired countless women to become loyal supporters and Founders of the “Hospital with a Heart.” Her energy was captivating and as her granddaughter so aptly described, she was “fun, fancy and fierce!” She and her husband “Dave” shaped the lives of countless Jewish children who benefited from the exceptional camping experience that the Weinbachs provided.
Heartfelt condolences to her children Aron (and Jacqueline), Tzionah, and Rabbi Elchanan (and Yocheved), the grandchildren, great grandchildren and the entire family. May they all be comforted amongst the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.
