Montreal, March 9, 2021

It is with a heavy heart that we share with you the sad news of the passing of our dear friend and colleague Frances “Cooki” Levy Z”L, who most recently served as Executive Director of the Bronfman Jewish Education Center (BJEC) and for many years, she was Head of School and Principal of Akiva School.

Cooki Levy’s contribution to educational communities in Montreal and all of North America, through her work with Prizmah, is immeasurable. Her involvement and influence in the Jewish day school system will certainly always be remembered. She was a warm and encouraging mentor to so many teachers and administrators over the years. Most recently, she brought her strength as an educator and her vision for the future to the Bronfman Jewish Education Centre.   

We would like to extend our sincere condolences to her husband, Dr. Barry Levy, and her children Daniel (Debra) Levy, David (Karen) Levy and Dr. Jonathan (Meredith) Levy and their respective families. 

May her memory be forever a blessing may her family be comforted with the Mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.
