After an amazing life, my husband, our father, grandfather, great-grandfather, cousin and great friend passed away on Saturday, November 21. Irwin Talesnick, cherished son of the late Ben and Vita Talesnick, can be described with many words, but we wanted to leave these ones:

Honest and loyal, principled and creative, motivating and trailblazing, loving, generous and true.

Irwin inspired his children, grandchildren and tens of thousands of students and educators from every country and faith to do one thing: Ask questions.

His infectious curiosity made every box open. Nothing was impossible for Irwin. “It’s never been done before,” was only his starting point.

He will continued to be loved by Ruth (Sherman) Talesnick, Mark, Lisa, Shoshi, Chyla and Judith along with in-laws: Michal Amir, Barry Katz, Jeff Traubici, Michael Stein, and grandchildren Tirra, Shefa, Raya, Ben, Alona, Ariel, Yona, Avia, Raimie, Shai, Avishua, Avital, Ore, Guy, Illi, Ofri, Michael, great-grandchildren Eli, Omer, and Yuval.

Thank you to his caregivers CJ, Erick and Irene. Deep appreciation to Dr Russell Goldman from the Temmy Latner Centre for Palliative Care.

Contributions can be made in his memory to Mazon.
