What a shock! I was waiting to have lunch with her and Ted. What a terrific lady. Her family can be very proud of her many accomplishments.

Michele was a member of Habonim and was on our 11th Workshop in Israel in 1961-2...she was a beautiful human being, and never stopped working for social justice issues and cultural experiences. I know she will be sorely missed...

This is so hard to write. Michelle was not only one of B'nai's most beloved congregants, she was my friend. Michelle was one of the most intelligent, strong, determined ladies I have ever known. She was always seeking to learn - about religion, politics, the entire world around her. As her health declined she continued to seek out opportunities to socialize, meet new people, learn and contribute to the larger community. Even with an oxygen tank and walker she still got to where she wanted to go to do what she wanted to do. Her spirit was unbreakable. She and Ted were the perfect partners and truly loved each other in sickness and in health. Her determination to live each moment no matter the obstacles, her never ending curiosity, her love of her family, her devotion to her friends is an inspiration. May her memory be a blessing to Ted, her children and grandchildren and all who were privileged to know her.

Michele was indeed a force of nature. A prolific, lyrical writer, her political, educational and cultural insights were always fascinating and timely. I always loved reading anything she wrote.

Michele possessed a vast storehouse of information, (especially free) activities and resources in and around Baltimore. Michele was never bored...and neither were you, if you were lucky enough to be riding on her coattails. A few of our memorable times with Michele, Ted, Marion and Seth include the wonderful Chanukah latke party she threw in the art and book filled ancestral Rosenberg manse in Dickeyville , a foray to Medieval Times courtesy of Miriam Winder-Kelly, Washington Monument, a " Watch the Lighting of the Washington Monument" party from their new apartment in Mount Vernon. We became downtown neighbors when we both downsized, and played "After You, Alfonse" through our revolving door admissions to Mercy Hospital.

Michelle, I felt your presence with us in shul in Las Vegas this weekend. The Shabbat on speakers were thought provoking and I wished we'd had the benefit of your insights and commentary to complete the experience. You will be missed.

Dear Ted and family, My heart goes out to you all at this sad time. Michele's memory is for a blessing-she was an "Eishet Chayil,"a woman of valor. She was a person who chose to use her gifts for the good. May you all find comfort at this sad time.

I knew Michelle from NDC 5. I always admired her energy and passion for social justice. To honor her memory, I’m going to finally read some of Octavia Butler’s books.

I'd like to second everything else that was said! Had the honor of knowing Michele and Ted through Associated and Baltimore Jewish Council forums starting in the late 1990's and they were almost always the most learned and outspoken in the crowd. Our politics were about 360 degrees as different as you can imagine, but over the last 20 or so years , a wink and a nod, and a few different worship settings, Talking local and national politics and campaigns with her as well as old Baltimore as a scion of another multigenerational family known in Civic and religious life, became more appealing than the main event! Despite her limitations over the past years, Michele fought on and was an inspiration to all of us "middle-leit" in the Chabad crowd and elsewhere. We are heartbroken that she passed so soon after the festive holidays but our memories of her will not soon diminish. I send my very best to Ted, Seth and the extended families

I met Michele many years ago, during one of the many community battles we were both engaged in fighting - probably the first one was the struggle to prevent the East-West Expressway from being built way back in the late 1960's and early 1970's. Since then, there have been serious issues about public transportation and other matters that we were both exercised about. In any case, it was always a pleasure to see Michele's smiling face and hear one of her ever-present opinions and suggestions about what was happening here in our city and metropolitan area. One of the most endearing qualities that Michele had was that she really cared about people, social issues, and equity for all. A unique person was Michele - we shall miss her strong presence among us.
