Gotthelf, Sara (1850–1921)

One of our best-known, and most respected Mothers in Israel passed away on Friday last, May 13th, in the person of Mrs. Moritz Gotthelf. Only on February 1st last Mr. and Mrs. Gotthelf celebrated their golden wedding, and many were the marks of respect paid to the deceased lady, and many the references to the good work done by her during her long residence in Sydney. During that time she was associated with her husband in everything that was for the good of Jewry and the welfare of the community. The deceased lady was a daughter of the late Mr. Moses Moss, and leaves a husband and four daughters to mourn their loss. There was a large and representative gathering at Rookwood on Sunday to pay their last respects to the deceased.
