Jake’s Library


Thank you all for your kind words, sweet deeds, compassion and being dear friends.

Many of you have expressed wanting to do something.

We’ve decided to create a children’s library at our Shul in honor and memory of our son, Jake, so there will be books and a haven for children.

One of Jake’s passions was reading. Another was doing projects with children that they would enjoy and learn from.

The books will be carefully chosen and this program will extend to reading to the children amongst other activities.

Terry started reading to the children on Shabbat.

Contributions to the fund will be tax deductible and should be made out to:

“The Marina Shul Beit Menachem”, on the bottom of check,

“Jake Colman’s Library fund”.

They can be sent to:

The Marina Shul

2532 Lincoln Blvd.

Marina del Rey, CA 90292

You can also go to the website here:

Marina Shul

and donate via PayPal or credit card. Please make sure to note in the Message section that this is for the Jake Colman Library Fund

This is just the beginning.

Thank you so much for helping to keep his memory alive.

With love and gratitude,

Terry and Ed Colman

About edcol52

The Infinite Fountain of Love and Loss flows unceasingly into the pool of memory and sorrow. I created this blog in response to the most dreadful tragedy every parent fears, the death of a child, our 24 year old son, Jake. We are now on an unimagined journey along this road of grief and recovery. If you can find some comfort within these pages, than I will have succeeded in some small measure.
