Sympathy – October 2017 issue

Posted on: September 30th, 2017 by tgregory

… to the friends and family of West End Synagogue member Ros Shainberg (Feiga Rachel bat Berel Lieb v Peshka). Ros passed away on Sunday night, Aug. 27. For many years she taught an arthritis aquatics class at the Gordon Jewish Community Center.

“I love being with the other people – we really have a good time,” she said in an interview about the class several years ago. “I like meeting new people, I like our camaraderie. … I actually have lots of people there who don’t have arthritis.  They don’t want to get it.”

Ros was a retired Realtor who enjoyed knitting, needlepoint and Mah Jongg. She was active in Hadassah.

Ros was preceded in death by her husband Roy Shainberg. She is survived by her children, Missy (Todd) Friedenberg, Sarah (Chad) Hornick and Louis Shainberg; grandchildren Zach Friedenberg, Alexa (Max) Schankerman, Ellie Hornick and Lindsay Hornick; and by her brother, Richard (Bathsheva) Kantor.

Donations may be made in her memory to West End Synagogue at 3810 West End Ave, Nashville, TN. 37205 or to Nashville Hadassah at 801 Percy Warner Blvd, Nashville, TN 37205.
