Monty Teperson z”l

In celebration of his 100th birthday, fellow resident, retired photographer Joss Shaff captured Monty Teperson’s spirit in this portrait.

We are sad to say goodbye to our resident Monty Teperson, whom we just wished mazaltov on his 100th birthday
in August. 

A hundred years of memories! Monty was an active part of our Highlands community for many years, participating in the art class and producing wonderful varied paintings. His work was recently included in the Highlands House Art Exhibition at Marais Road Shul in September. Very involved in Ohel Samson shul at Highlands House, Monty has always contributed his good sense of humour, insight and wisdom to every activity. We all enjoyed his monthly bulletin, a newsletter to his fellow residents. On his birthday, we presented Monty with a certificate for his outstanding contribution to the Home. Errol Anstey shared some stories from Monty’s younger days in the Merchant Navy during World War II, when he enjoyed boxing and cultivating a six-pack. Monty’s joie de vivre inspired us all. One hundred years will not soon be forgotten. Baruch Dayan Ha-emet.
