Solomon library at Rambam


RA Francine Solomon Memorial Library has been dedicated at Rambam Mesivta by the Deutsch and Solomon families in memory of their mother.

Carolyn Deutsch, the daughter of Mrs. Solomon, is a president of the Rambam Women’s League and has two sons in the school — Eli, a senior, and Dovi, a freshman. Her oldest son, Jonathan, graduated from Rambam in 2015 and currently is director of technology at Midreshet Shalhevet High School for Girls, Rambam’s sister school.

Francine was a school librarian who was committed to the written word and assisting young readers in finding books that would speak to them in that special way that only certain books can. Books in the new library are surrounded by a mural, created by Gila and Morgan Roslyn, that depicts ivy hugging the bookcase.

At the dedication ceremony, Carolyn Deutsch spoke about her mother’s life, and her son Eli read the dedication plaque that described Mrs. Solomon’s life as “one well-lived and well-read.” Carolyn was joined by her husband and family, and her brother Jared led Shacharis for the Rambam Minyan.
