    Dear JewishGen Community,

    With tremendous pain and sadness, I regret to inform you that Phyllis
    Kramer, our beloved Director of Education, has passed away.

    Not many were aware of this, but Phyllis was diagnosed with an
    extremely aggressive illness shortly before the Cleveland conference.
    Phyllis shared the news with me, but asked that I not publicize it.

    Over the past 6 weeks, Phyllis did a lot of work, together with Nancy
    Holden, to perpetuate our educational offerings, and more information
    will be shared in the coming days. But for now, we join together in
    great sadness and mourning for someone who dedicated so much of
    herself to the broader Jewish genealogical community.

    I last spoke to Phyllis a few days ago, and last saw her in person a
    couple of weeks ago. She was an extremely loyal friend, mentor and
    role model to me personally, and I know that she will be deeply,
    deeply missed by all of us.

    More information will be shared, including what we can do to honor
    Phyllis's memory, in the days ahead.

    With tears.

    Avraham Groll
