Deepest condolences offered to the Family of Mrs. Bertha Nelkin, who, as my Teacher and Guide Warren Easton High School, impacted my life and blessed me more than she knew. Thank you for sharing your Bertha Nelkin with me those many years ago. Her loving kindness has stayed with me all these years since 1971.

A great Jewish woman, who loved the Jewish people, her husband and family, haTorah ve-ha-Mitzvah, Israel, the world. A great loss for all who loved her and every community her presence graced.

May you find comfort in many precious memories. It was a privilege to know her.

I remember Mrs. Nelkin from her days patiently teaching my confirmation class (including how to bake challah) at New Orleans's Congregation Beth Israel. May her memory be for a blessing.

I'm so sorry to hear of Dr.Nelkin's passing. Such a wonderful teacher, both in school and life lessons. I feel so priviledged to have had her as a teacher at Warren Easton High School in New Orleans. I visited Dr.Nelkin in Baltimore 3 years ago with my children. So glad I was able to personally thank her 40 plus years later, as I appreciated all those lessons even more! My thoughts and prayers are with you.

My memories of Mrs. Nelkin are of always doing chesed.
Whether it was going to Johns Hopkins hospital at least once a week,to working together with Rebitzen Weinberg AH to trying to include every hospital to have Bikur Cholim visitors.
Always caring for others & her unfailing devotion to her husband Stichye , her son & all of her family.
May she be a Malitza Yaffe for her family & Klal Yisroel
