Eulogies: Rosalind Glaser Peters

Pioneer in L.A.'s Jewish Community Dies at 92

January 24, 2002 | 7:00 pm

Rosalind Glaser Peters died on Jan. 6, 2002, at the age of 92.

She was our "Aishes Chayil," woman of valor, elegance, strength and dignity. The unparalled, articulate, beloved matriarch of our family.

Born in New York in 1909, she was a true pioneer of the Los Angeles Jewish Community, an expert spokeswoman and fundraiser for innumerable philanthropic causes. Among her many accomplishments, she founded the FDR chapter of Hadassah and was one of the founders of the Benefactors. She is loved and will be dearly missed by everyone who ever met her. She is the Crown Jewel of her family and her extended community.

She is survived by her husband, David Peters; sons, Manuel (Harriet), Jerome, and Herb (Sharon) Glaser; grandchildren Tamar (Doron), Jonathan (Nancy), Samuel (Marcia), Aharon (Dena), Yom Tov (Leah), Joel, Samantha and Aubra; 10 great-grandchildren; brothers, Jack and Charles Barenfeld; and sister-in-law, Marion Barenfeld.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be sent in the name of Rosalind Glaser Peters to Hadassah Medical Center-Jerusalem or the United Jewish Fund.
