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
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
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.
Glenn Super, also known as "Mr. Bullhorn," who won recognition nationally

Father's Place in Roslyn and rose through comedy clubs, TV and concert
venues. 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

"Excellence in Children's Broadcasting." As Mr. Bullhorn, he made numerous

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.

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. Jack Ishmore was an
inspirational teacher at the North Junior High School. He taught radio
production and English classes that many students (including ours) rushed
to attend. He opened the world of imagination and creativity that so many
of our children remember now in their adult and personal lives. We remember
