It is with great sadness that we announce to Kar-Ben’s customers and friends the death of Nancy Kaplan, Kar-Ben’s longtime customer service representative. Nancy was a kind, caring and lovely person, devoted to her family and friends, an active volunteer with the Girl Scouts, Hadassah, and the Beth El Synagogue Women’s League. She treated Kar-Ben colleagues and customers like family, asking about everybody’s children and grandchildren, wanting everybody to be happy and healthy, and sharing both joys and sorrows with a wide range of people. She loved Jewish children’s books, and especially enjoyed when local preschoolers came on field trips to tour Kar-Ben’s book warehouse, their eyes open in wonder and delight when they spied Sammy Spider books or other titles which they recognized. Nancy was a loving wife to Ron, mother to Brenda and Debbie, and bubbie to Anya, Brianna and Ezra. We will miss her dearly. May her memory be for a blessing.

  1. Thank you Joni for the kind words. My mom really liked her job. It was a part of her life. She would talk about the relationships she has made with the customers. She could tell me any store or synagogue around the country that buys Kar Ben books. She found a lot of joy sharing the books with her grandchildren.
