    Bernice Zoslaw (nee Berue), 88, passed away peacefully at Penn Hospice at Rittenhouse on July 27. Among her many accomplishments, she conducted interviews of Holocaust survivors for the Gratz College Archive, transcripts of which will be permanently included in the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. and at Yad Vashem in Jerusalem. Zoslaw, known to her family as Shana, was born the fifth of six children to David and Bessie Berue of the Strawberry Mansion section of Philadelphia on January 20, 1929. She pursued studies at Beaver College (now Arcadia University), Gratz College and Temple University. A lifelong student of Jewish culture and history, she was also very active in interfaith dialogue, working to promote understanding between Christians and Jews. She had served as a board member of the Interfaith Council on the Holocaust, as a member of the Jewish Community Relations Council and was a Jewish co-leader for a series of inter-religious dialogues in Abington, Pa. A longtime member of Congregation Beth Sholom, Zoslaw was also a member of Hadassah and ORT and had volunteered as a Women’s Division captain for door-to-door solicitations in several sections of Abington for the Federation Allied Jewish Appeal. She is survived by her three children, Marcia (Ira) Siegal of Philadelphia, Debra (Jim) Vickery of Chalfont and Jeffrey (Donna) Zoslaw of Londonderry, New Hampshire, as well as a sister, Sylvia Abbott and her three beloved grandchildren, David, Eli and Jaclyn. She was preceded in death by her husband, Bertram, her two brothers, Jacob and William and by two other sisters, Leah and Florence.
