Linda Pinsky
May 8, 1961-May 7, 1985

Born in Brooklyn, Linda grew up in Long Beach and Woodmere, New York, where she attended the Hebrew Academy of Long Beach and Hillel High School.

After graduation from Hillel in 1978, Linda spent a year at Michlala-Jerusalem College and then attended Barnard from which she graduated in 1982 with a degree in computer science. She then secured a position in the computer department of AT&T.

Judaism pervaded Linda’s life and was demonstrated by her serious committment, sincere love and devotion to her religion and to her beloved land of Israel.

Linda touched many lives. Her special love of children was evidenced by her work as a counselor in summer camp and as a youth leader in her synagogue. She was a most beloved daughter and granddaughter and was devoted to her younger sister and brother.

Linda loved people and people loved Linda. She had a wide circle of friends who knew her to be loyal and dependable. When she succumbed to leukemia after an illness of five months, Linda’s friends, together with her rabbi, family and parents, sought an appropriate living memorial to her.

This library is the result.
