Plant a tree in memory of Ruth

An environmentally friendly option

S Sandy Lessig on Jan 4, 2022

Ruth always inspired both staff, volunteers & students at Holocaust Museum Houston. Frankly, she was a pistol! We spoke of her love of opera & when she spoke about her experiences, all were captivated. She contributed much & I will personally never forget her. Sandy Lessig
