Dear Keshet Friends,
In Keshet’s nearly 40 years of existence, there have been few individuals who have made more of an impact on the organization and its members than Sharon Frankel. So, it is with very mixed feelings that we have accepted Sharon’s retirement as of July 1st
From Keshet’s earliest days in the early 1980’s to the present, Sharon has been a vital member of our community as a parent, board member, staff member, volunteer, archivist, and Director of Special Events. Sharon stepped into any role needed, working around the clock preparing for events, and offering a steady hand during the hard times, and cheerleading the organization’s triumphs.
We thank you, Sharon, but are also grateful to your family members for sharing you with us: Your husband Charles z”l, children, Lee, Phyllis, Fred, Ina, and Ariella z”l, and countless grandchildren and great grandchildren. Your legacy is rich within Keshet but is priceless beyond it. We are proud to have one of Keshet’s flagship programs, the Ariella Joy Frankel Keshet Day School, named in memory of your dear daughter.
We love you Sharon, and we know you’ll be near if called upon.
Please see Sharon’s letter to members of the Keshet family below. When restrictions have opened up, we’ll be back in touch about a celebration of Sharon’s accomplishments.
Jen Phillips, Acting CEO
