GLATSTEIN: Cyna Wolman Glatstein, on 3rd of Tishrei, Friday night, September 22, 2017. Beloved wife of 70 years of Rabbi Mordecai Glatstein. Loving mother of Hannah, Joseph, and Yitzchak Glatstein, adored by her 9 grandchildren and many great-grandchildren. She was born into a rabbinic family in Sochaczew, Poland, where her father was the Rabbi, prior to the outbreak of World War II. She led an early life of unbearable hardship as a child in the Warsaw Ghetto during the war and living as a Gentile with false papers until the liberation of Europe by the Allies from the German Nazis. She married her life partner Rabbi Mordecai Glatstein in a Displaced Persons Camp and never left his side since. While adjusting to her new life in Pittsburgh she surmounted challenges of language and culture and worked tirelessly to champion Jewish life and education, and to tend to the elderly and the infirm at a variety of institutions. She held classes to teach new Russian immigrants the beauty of Judaism and Jewish tradition when they arrived in Pittsburgh from the former Soviet Union. Despite surviving the crucible of fire that was WW II Europe for a young Jewish girl, she clung to her Judaism and stayed true to her upbringing and Jewish heritage and never wavered. She loved all whom she met and was beloved by all who knew her. Her warmth, radiance and good humor touched thousands that she came in contact with. Burial was on Sunday, September 24 in Jerusalem, at the Mount of Olives Cemetery.
