In Memoriam

The Readers Association mourns the death of Alisa Alon, one of four librarians who for many years graciously and thoughtfully served the readers in the Judaica Reading Room. She always greeted us with a smile. Her interest in the readers extended beyond help with finding information or books to a personal interest in us, our families, and our lives. One story from the volume of letters produced when all four—Elona Avinezer, Ruth Flint, Zipporah Ben Abu, and Alisa Alon—retired illustrates her humanity. On learning of the tragic death of a reader’s younger sister in Germany, Alisa tracked down the reader’s number and made a personal call to express her condolences.
