Dear Karin and Doron and Families, We are so sorry to hear of Shlomi’s passing. I have such great memories of childhood with both your parents - especially the Purim parties. More recently I had the privilege of seeing your father at the Neuberger Centre and last saw him at one of the opening events of the Holocaust Museum. He always has a smile for me and such a gentle way about him. May you be comforted by wonderful memories and may you have strength in the days ahead.

Dear Karin, Doron and families. Shlomo and Renata were part of the family by choice our parents made when we moved from Israel. The memories are memories of a lifetime together - chagim, Seders with Slomo’s famous chazanut and so many special times over the years. He leaves an indelible mark on all he touched and all of you as his legacy. May his memory be a blessing to you all, always. Nira, Kevin and family.

Doron, Years ago it was always a pleasure to greet your Dad at the Stash and engage him in conversation. An elegant and considered gentleman. May his memory be for a blessing.

Dear Karin, Doron and families. I have many wonderful memories of your father and grandfather. He was always busy on some project or researching some topic that he was happy to share. And always accompanied by a kind smile and a twinkle in his eye. Thinking of all of you at this difficult time. May you know no more sorrow.

Dear Karin, Doran and children, Your dad and grandfather has been a very dear friend of mine for over 45 years even though I moved with my family from Toronto to Australia in 1982. My last phone call to Alex was on Sunday 4th of Feb 2024, as usual he was so happy and he told me about his fantastic visit with his sister and her two sons from Israel. Alex sounded the best in a very long time. I like to celebrate Alex’s life and my long friendship with a true gentleman! Alex had such an incredible life story, I will miss his chats and friendship. I would like to acknowledge Latricia who genuinely cared for Renata and then Alex. The Eisen family, you were indeed blessed to have Alex in your lives! Vale Alex, my friend!

We chose to journey together and we chose to love each. And love each other we did, very beautifully and gracefully. My recollection of some of our times together: 50 lattes 20 pastries 10 donuts

Dory and Karin, your dad really mastered the art of fatherhood. For Shlomo, family came first. He was kind and calm and I will always remember his warmth. As children, he would listen to what we had to say and treated us with the same respect that he extended to adults. He showered you with love. May you be comforted with beautiful memories.

The Eisen Family: I worked with your mother, Renata Z'L, when Sheppard Travel closed and and we had the privilege to have her join us at Amiron Travel (just across the street). At the same time we had the pleasure of meeting "her Alex.". I fondly recall the many conversations we had regarding his family, his pre and post war experiences, as well as his mission visiting schools to educate students about the Holocaust. He gave me a copy of a picture a student drew of a tree with the branches as hands with the tatooed numbers, reaching out of the ground. This drawing is a testament to the success of his mission, which I have displayed in my home. Both Renata and Alex were so very proud of their children and grandchildren. You are left with a legacy that will continue to influence your daily lives and bring you so much joy as you remember them. My heartfelt condolences to you all. May Alex's Neshuma have an Aliyah in Gan Eden.

My condolences to you, Karin, and your brother and your families on the loss of your beloved father. I knew your mother better, but I always smile when I recall how I met both your parents once at Costco, we stood around talking, and when your father heard that I edit, he ran out to the car to get a copy of his memoir to show me. He was very excited about it. I also saw and spoke to him a few years later at a Holocaust film event put on by my kids' school. May he rest in peace , his soul now reunited with that of your dear mother.

Hello Karin, In the Canadian Jewish news, I saw the obituary of your dear father. He was remarkable. I am so very very sorry. I met him and your mother so many years ago at your home. They both so impressed me. I hope you and your daughters are well and that your memory of your father will sustain you during this difficult period. Know that I am thinking of you. I would love to connect when you are available.
