It is with deep sadness that we mark the passing of one of our best, most talented and wonderful teachers, Harriet Lawler-Hernick. Our thoughts are with her family and her many loving students.

I would like to share a moment with my friends:
Early this Thursday morning, our mother, friend, wife, artist, and lover of life started her journey to a place where one day we hope to meet again.
Regina Barker-Barzel was an amazing woman. She was a survivor, a true survivor who put up a great fight. She spent her entire life surviving struggles. She coped with the harshness of her young life in the Soviet Union and made a creative and bold escape in 1972. She served the IDF during the Yom Kippur War in 1973, and risked her life with three very difficult high-risk pregnancies to create our family. She survived breast cancer only begin a decade-long contest against Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma a few years later. She battled cancer for 18 years.
Mom lovingly appreciated every minute of this gift of life. Always creating, developing, expanding, and refining her art; enjoying the concerts, dances, and travels around the world with my father during breaks in her treatments. She always told me that she just did not have enough time to put down on canvas or paper all of the ideas that ran through her mind. Her imagination and creativity was something to admire, she was a true intellectual and a beautiful loving woman. My parent’s doors were always open to any of my friends that needed shelter, food, or comfort when I was growing up - She always had the pasta going.
Thank you, mom, for all the gifts that you have shared. Thank you for being my mother. I miss you more than worlds can say. Until we meet again Eama, I love you!
Safe travels
Regina will have Jewish graveside burial at 11 AM on Sunday, October 27, 2019 at the King David Memorial Gardens, Shalom Block II, 7482 Lee Hwy, Falls Church, VA 22042.
