This week, we note the passing in Seattle, WA of Leni LaMarche, author of the column “Bavajadas de Benadam”.
I always loved Leni’s stories and antecdotes. I am including a link to some of her columns, released by Congregation Ezra Bessaroth, as well as a biography of Leni from the Weaving Woman’s Words Project.
Leni was a delightful teacher and a talented storyteller. Enjoy her “Bavajadas”!
May her memory be a blessing.
Leni was “one in a million.” She will be missed by many of us in Seattle and throughout the Sephardic Communities that knew her, her humor, her music and her amazing love of life and our traditions. May she rest in peace.
I first met Leni in 1992 on a Sephardic Cruise of the Aegean including Rhodes.
I loved her many stories and anecdotes.
We communicated often.
I will miss her
