Lisette Ruderman was born in Tel-Aviv, Israel on March 16, 1936 to Maurice and Fanny Rosenkranz. She graduated from Gymnasia Herzliya – Israel’s first Hebrew high school - in 1950. After serving in the Israeli Defense Forces, Lisette attended the Hebrew University in Jerusalem and graduated with a degree in law. In 1959, she met the love of her life and married Jerome (Jerry) Ruderman. In 1967 they moved to the newly completed Kennedy House, where they resided for 55 years.
Lisette studied Interior Design at Moore College of Art, and pursued a degree in Library Science From Villanova University. She worked as a high school librarian with The School District of Philadelphia for 32 years. The couple spent alternate summers in Tel-Aviv, and spent time locally. In her retirement, she and Jerry enjoyed each other’s company, traveled with friends and showered their grandson and his parents with love. Lisette is survived by her daughter Shelley Ruderman, son-in-law Jordan (Cassway) and grandson Eitan (Cassway).
