Phyllis Lipsett


Phyllis Lipsett, daughter of David and Jane Javitch, was born in Carlisle and raised in a family that emphasized Jewish values and community service. Phyllis brought dedication and dignity to all her commitments: as an officer of the Sisterhood at Temple Beth El, as a Hadassah board member and as President of the Jewish Home Guild. She regularly read to the blind and helped Soviet Jews resettle in Harrisburg. Devoted to her family, our mother models through her actions the values she holds so dear. A centerpiece of her home has always been Shabbos and holiday meals made special by her exquisite preparation and refined aesthetic sense. In 2007, our mother and father took our entire family, 32 and growing, to Israel to solidify family memories and solidarity with our homeland.


A Gift from her loving children: Yale Lipsett, Beth Lipsett and Julie Lipsett Singer
