Jan Jaben-Eilon's Reflection

From the first moment I spoke to Marcia over the phone, I felt listened to and heard. She understood and respected my dual citizenship angst. In those initial days, I was spending much more time in Israel at our apartment in Jerusalem. Marcia heard me, then involved me in Brit Tzedek. She was encouraging, thoughtful and sensitive. I especially recall the time she spent here in Atlanta during which my husband and I had a lot of time alone to get to know her. Even after Brit Tzedek, we stayed in touch. She stood by me during all my health problems, letting me know that she cared.

She was a mentor and a friend. And I miss her greatly,
Jan Jaben-Eilon
