Jane Nathanson Morningstar was born in Boston in 1919 to Ida (Alpert) and Edward Nathanson. From her parents she learned the importance of community, of education, and of Jewish identity and continuity. As she took their legacy and put her own stamp on it, she instilled those values and passions in her family by her steadfast example. Her late husband, Otto Morningstar, joined her and supported her in her community activities, but Jane always took the lead. Her vision and dedication were absolutely clear and unwavering.
