Welcome to Our North Suburban Beth El Sisterhood Gift Shop!

Your Resource for Beautiful Judaica and Gifts

A Woman of Valor
 Eshet Ḥayil (אשת חיל)

It is with deep sadness that we share the news of the passing of our beloved Diane Levin.  She brought an amazing dedication and love to all that she did for our Beth El Community from co-chairing several of our Beth El Art Festivals and serving on our Sisterhood’s Board of Directors to stewarding the gift shop for which she served as co-chair for nearly ten years.

Diane spent countless hours at the gift shop where she truly enjoyed working.  Laughter always abounded, whether we were stocking shelves, reviewing inventory, or planning for the next holiday, she made it fun.  She always had a ready smile, and when she smiled at you, it was genuine.

Even on the days she wasn’t feeling her best, Diane worked tirelessly to make sure everything was right, down to the smallest detail.  The gift shop reflects Diane’s love and keen eye for beautiful pieces of art.  She was committed to ensuring that what we provided perfectly reflected the mitzvah of Hiddur Mitzvah — beautiful Judaica to enhance the celebrations of holidays or other special occasions.

For her tireless efforts, she was honored by Sisterhood as a Valued Volunteer, and she definitely was! In her unassuming way, Diane brightened the world with her thoughtfulness, kindness, and sensitivity to the needs of others.  Diane was truly a woman of valor, strength, and integrity who embraced life —  a  truly beautiful soul who we will miss always.

May Diane Levin be bound in the bond of eternal life and may her memory be for a blessing
