Dear Bensky family,
I was one of the many who was tutored by Mr. Bensky for a bar/bat mitzvah at Temple Emunah. Mine was in 1982. I want you to know that this experience, learning torah and haftarah chanting from him, has been enormously important for me. Twice now in my adult life, I have moved to a new part of the country and built my first social connections largely through my ability to contribute as a torah reader in a new congregation. I don't think I would have become such an involved member of the Jewish community without the boost that Mr. Bensky gave me.
I have written to Mr. Bensky a few times over the years to tell him this, and I know that it meant a lot to him because he mentioned it to my family members in Lexington. But now that he is no longer here, I want to say it one last time to all of you. He was a remarkable man who showed such care for all of us kids whom he tutored. He made an enormous difference for us. And I am now tutoring the second of my two children for her upcoming bat mitzvah, passing along the same trope that Mr. Bensky taught me.

Jeff, Norman and Mark,
I just returned home from a two week vacation and discovered that your dad passed on. I am very sorry that I missed all the services.
I have wonderful memories of being with your parents on the boat and at various fun events.
After your mom died, your father and I would go out for dinner about every six weeks or so.
My sincere condolences.
