Sumner, a great man of principle and generosity who worked tiresly for Jewish causes, including Temple Beth El of Quincy, will be missed. It is no coincidence that the passing of Sumner Greenberg and the closing of his beloved Temple Beth El coincide. Shalom Sumner!

Our most sincere condolences to the other side of our family for the loss of our Great-Uncle Sumner. I have always had fond childhood memories of the many thanksgiving holidays that we all shared together in Quincy. He will always be remembered for being so warm, loving, and kind. Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone. We are so sorry that we can not be there in-person but we are still mourning this loss with all of you from afar. May the love of family and those around you all help everyone through the days ahead.
