Shirley Singer a''h
Lifetime Achievement Award - Accepted by her children Suri Katz, Tzivia Singer, Pessi Reimer
Share with your family and friends.
Shirley Singer a”h was the beloved wife of Jack Singer a"h, mother to Suri & Howard Katz, Pessi & Asher Reimer, and Tzivia & Eli Singer a’’h and was a proud grandmother and great-grandmother.
Shirley was born on the Lower Eastside and lived in Brownsville for many years. Shirley and Jack moved to Crown Heights, and then settled in Flatbush in 1968, where she remained until she passed.
Shirley's passion for Israel and Zionism started in 1944. Shirley applied for membership to Hapoel Mizrachi and was required to appear before a committee to present the reasons why she wanted to be part of the organization. Despite being rejected for being too young, she returned a year later at the age of 16 determined to become a member. In 1945, she was granted membership and of course, the rest is history.
Shirley was a member of the Crown Heights Emunah Rachel Bergmann Chapter and then became involved with the Sarah Herzog Chapter in Brooklyn. Shirley was very active in the Sarah Herzog Chapter; she organized events and raised thousands of necessary funds for Emunah projects in Israel. Shirley held the position of Emunah Executive Director, Executive Vice President, and in her latter years was Senior Director of Philanthropy. Shirley worked tirelessly, together with the board and donors, on every campaign and project at Emunah. 
Shirley never forgot anyone and kept in touch with everyone she met. She was interested in their lives, was an excellent listener, and everyone she worked with became her friend. Shirley was quiet and unassuming, yet she was determined and never gave up. Shirley was generous with her time, a leader, and a stellar fundraiser. Her husband, Jack, supported all her efforts on behalf of Klal Yisroel. Shirley's commitment to breaking the cycle of poverty and distress through education and therapy inspired many others to follow suit.
Despite suffering from complications of Covid-19, she still continued to advocate for Emunah during her last conversations. Emunah was Shirley’s  passion and her life's work. Shirley’s legacy of chesed continues to help transform every aspect of the lives of Emunah’s children and families and her impact on board members, donors, colleagues, and her cherished family will be felt for many years to come. She is dearly missed by all who knew and loved her.
