TBE announces the death of Elaine Faver, who served as cantor of this community until 2010. Her family will observe shiva with public visiting hours at Cantor Elaine’s home, 112 Daisy Farms Drive, New Rochelle, New York, on Sunday, July 24, from 2-5pm.
Cantor Elaine graduated from the Academy for Jewish Religion in New York, where she was a student of Rabbi Shohama. In addition to her service to TBE and City Island, Cantor Elaine taught and served as cantor and chaplain in senior facilities and in hospice. She is remembered as warm and tunefully spiritual, and she is survived by children and grandchildren, as well as her congregants who remember her with deep care.
We extend our heartfelt condolences to Cantor Elaine’s family. May they be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.
