Jesse Kahn  
Jesse Kahn, 98, a pillar of the Jewish community of Great Neck, died at his apartment on July 27, 2001 after a short illness. Mr. Kahn, who moved to Great Neck in 1931, became an early member of Temple Beth-El of Great Neck. He was elected a trustee in 1933 and shortly thereafter vice president. He also served for many years as the temple counsel, head of ushers and chairman of several committees, later being elected a lifetime trustee and permanent honorary vice president. In January, 2001, he was honored at a brunch at which he gave a witty, extemporaneous speech that had many in the audience laughing appreciatively. 
He was widely known in Great Neck, in his later years as the "candy man" for his habit of distributing hard candies to bank employees, barbers, bus drivers, waiters and other people with whom he came in contact. A friend, Charles Draper, said "the candy was never as sweet as he was."  
In the 1930s, he served as associate chairman of the charity drive for the then new Federation of Jewish Philanthropies, breaking the previous record for fundraising. During WWII, he won a commendation for the highest sales of government war bonds by a member of his synagogue. Later he worked on committees that raised money to establish Long Island Jewish Hospital and for what is now the North Shore University Hospital. 
Mr. Kahn was born in Austria-Hungary Dec. 12, 1902. He came to the US with his parents in 1904. Living first on the Lower and later the Upper East Side, he went to grammar school and later DeWitt Clinton High School, of which he remained a loyal alumnus. He worked after school, first in a shoe store, where he was proud that he never missed an opportunity to sell shoe trees to someone who had just bought shoes, and then in a pharmacy. Upon graduation in 1921, he entered NYU Law School, from which he received a bachelor's and a master's degree in law. He was admitted to the Bar in 1925. 
While at law school, he became a member of alpha chapter of Alpha Epsilon Pi, a social fraternity, of which he was later elected supreme sentinel.  
He was employed by the law firm of Kornbluth and Pollack from 1920 until 1929, when, with a fraternity brother, Jesse Safir, he founded the law firm of Safir & Kahn, located for many years at 521 Fifth Ave. Mr. Kahn, who specialized in trial work, was instrumental in the 1930s in the formation of what was probably the first trial lawyers' organization in the US, the Association of Trial Lawyers of the City of NY, which still flourishes. 
Mr. Kahn married the former Florence Abraham in 1929. Mrs. Kahn died 1989, after the couple had celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary.  
Mr. Kahn was a handsome man with an affable and charming manner. That he was widely known and liked in Great Neck is attested by the fact that during his last illness many people asked for him. His funeral at Temple Beth-El, on July 30, at which Rabbi Jerome Davidson officiated, was attended by more than 150 people. 
He is survived by his three children, David Kahn, an author, and Miriam Harris, formerly at the Children's Living After School Program (CLASP), both of Great Neck, and Louis A. Kahn, a retired teacher, of Teaneck, NJ.; by seven grandchildren, Rebecca Harris, Nancy Harris Sidford, John Harris, Deborah Kahn, Diana Kahn, Oliver Kahn, and Michael Kahn; and by six great-grandchildren, Aaron, Rachel and Sarah Sidford and Daniel, Benjamin and Adina Harris.

His love of children led him to create "Glenn Super's Kids Comedy Clubhouse," a children's show he performed at Westbury Music Fair, in schools throughout the country and other child-oriented institutions and camps. Through humor, his songs carried important messages about safety and feelings. Regarding children, Super said, "Earning a living doing what I love for an audience I love: kids." Through humor, his songs carried serious messages about safety, feelings and self-esteem. 
Super earned a Theater degree from Carnegie Mellon University and was honored with the 1996 Pennsyvania Association of Broadcasters Award for "Excellence in Children's Broadcasting." As Mr. Bullhorn, he made numerous TV appearances including interviews and performances on Regis and Kathie Lee Live, Make Me Laugh, among others, and toured with such headliners as The Beach Boys, Air Supply and George Carlin.

Rita Wolf Emanuel  
By Linda Emanuel 
Rita Emanuel, a life-long Great Neck resident and a descendant of the first Jewish family in Great Neck, died on Oct. 16, 2001 at North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset from a sudden heart attack. She was 85 years old. Mrs. Emanuel's grandparents, Rose and Avram Wolf, originally from Germany, moved their family from Manhattan to Great Neck in 1891. They had been offered a large home at low rent by W.R. Grace, steamship magnate and Mayor of NYC, for whom Abe Wolf was a tailor.  
Rita Wolf Emanuel 
Mr. Grace, who summered in Great Neck, had learned of a trolley car accident that had taken the leg of Mrs. Emanuel's father, Isaac, as an infant. Isaac, known as I.G.,was one of seven children, four of whom remained in Great Neck. Like his father, he was active in civic and Jewish affairs in Great Neck. The elder Wolf helped establish the Alert Fire Dept.; I.G., the Vigilant. I.G. became an active Great Neck real estate broker and played a central role in the development of many local properties, including Tuscan Court and Kenilworth. When Mrs. Emanuel was school-aged, I.G. and Pauline Wolf, along with other involved families, began organizing the Jewish community. This group formed the nucleus of what later became Temple Beth-El. Mrs. Emanuel's father assembled the property for it at no charge and served as its second president, as well as its honorary president all his life. He funded the purchase of the group's first Torah, in memory of his wife who died on Mrs. Emanuel's 13th birthday.  
Rita Emanuel was born in February 1916 on Grace Ave. She was the older of two girls. Her deceased sister, Ethel Wolf Larick, was also a lifetime Great Neck resident. Mrs. Emanuel attended Kensington School, the second elementary school in Great Neck, and what is now the Miller North High School, Great Neck's second secondary school. In 1930 she was confirmed at Temple Beth El which met at the time in the Community Church on Bond St. She also attended the NY School of Interior Design.  
In 1940 Miss Wolf married Louis Emanuel, originally from Portland, ME. The wedding was held at her home, built by her father in his marriage year of 1914. It stood until a few years ago at the corner of Maple Dr. and Hillside Ave. In 1914 Great Neck Estates extended only one block in from Middle Neck Rd.  
Mrs. Emanuel and her husband Louis were founding members of Temple Israel and remained active in it all their lives. A week before her death, the congregation honored the couple during Simchat Torah services. In 1990 they were the honorees at the temple's annual educational fund-raising gala. In the spring of this year Mrs. Emanuel delivered a talk about the early history of Great Neck and her family's involvement in it.  
Rita Emanuel was a life member of Hadassah and the Association for the Help of Retarded Children. She was twice president of the Sharon Group of Hadassah, now known as the Herzl Group. She delivered Meals-on-Wheels from North Shore University Hospital-Manhasset. She was a devotee of the arts - particularly the Dance.  
Rita took seriously her important roles as wife, mother and grandmother. She also had many dear enduring friendships, some with people whom she had grown up with in Great Neck. She made friends easily and was a modest, pleasant person, who gave generously of herself to her family, friends and beloved Great Neck community.  
In addition to her husband Louis, she is survived by her children, Paula and Joel Rubin of Heathrow, FL, Trudy Emanuel and Jofred Grinblat of Forest Hills, and David and Linda Emanuel of Great Neck. She also leaves grandchildren, Ilene Rubin, Gregory and Nicole Rubin, Jason Emanuel and Maya Emanuel. She was eagerly anticipating the birth of her first great-grandchild, born Oct. 27.  
The funeral was handled by Riverside-Nassau North Chapels, Great Neck. Burial Mt. Hebron Cemetery. Note: The full text of Mrs. Emanuel's speech on early Great Neck mentioned in this article is available. Contact Louis Emanuel, 65 Old Pond Rd., Great Neck, NY 11023.

Jack Ishmole passed away peacefully on Oct. 15, 2001. Those of us who were fortunate enough to live in Great Neck during the Halcyon days of the Great Neck schools will certainly remember him.
