Our Lily z”l, Glendale Home’s own Eshet Chayil

Glendale home cares for those in our community with severe intellectual disabilities. 

Providing personal care, social, vocational, educational, residential, spiritual, financial, and healthcare services, Glendale has grown from its humble beginnings in 1966 to a core provider of the community’s support services for the disabled.

It owes its existence to a small group of Jewish Capetonians, who identified the need for such a home. An important voice in the Jewish community of Cape Town, Lily Cammerman z”l was a key figure in this group and, on her passing during July, we remember her contribution with great fondness.

The tribute from Glendale recorded that, “Lily was a founding member of Glendale home. Over the years, she drove many fundraising initiatives for the home, working closely with our families. Her dedication to our cause and deep love for both our residents and heroes have earned her an honorary lifetime membership of our governing board.” 

Lily’s immense contribution will be missed. She remains in the hearts and minds of many Capetonians as her communal legacy shines bright through the lives of all those she loved and cared for.
