Four Questions – Anna Rose Tendler


It is not possible that you don’t already know our next player. She’s our very special…


Anna Rose Tendler

She was born and reared in University City. It was love at first sight during her senior year trip to Israel – she saw Jerusalem! Oh, and Victor Tendler – the Russian student on the same work/study program. She spoke no Russian; he spoke no English; neither spoke Hebrew very well. But that didn’t stop love!

It was a long four-year wait (while Victor finished his service in the Israeli Army) before they could marry. The children then arrived: Suzanne, Mark and Hershel. Along with her other fulltime work, Anna Rose is the powerhouse of our Shul! She shops, she cooks, she bakes, she serves…she does it all. And we truly wouldn’t be the same without her!

The Questions:

1. Who is your favorite Torah personality and why?
A. ” Noah. Because the choices he made allowed life to go on. He was tasked by G-d to build an ark, collect, and keep alive all the creatures G-d wanted to save before He started the world over because of the impurities in the world at that time. If it weren’t for Noah, we (and the creatures in our world) would not be here.”

2. What is your favorite snack food?
A. “Ice cream (any flavor except coffee!).”

3. Three words that best describe you?
A. “A: “Friendly, hard-working and sensitive to others’ feelings and needs.”

4. What inspires you?
A: “My family! Especially my children and grandchildren.”


that Anna Rose shops for the Shul EVERY WEEK? If there’s a Kiddish, Shalosh Seudas, or any noshes, she had a hand in supplying the food. She runs all over town, ferreting out special pricing and treats, and is always on the GO-GO-GO! She has more energy than an average 4-year-old!

We take this opportunity to sing your praises, Anna Rose, and to express our heartfelt appreciation for all that you do. Always quick to lend a hand, to offer a smile or a special something, you are a cherished member of our NHBZ family. Thank you for being you!
