  1. I am Isaac Wachsberger Miriam Stern brother. I met Yehuda when I was 12 years old in Israel. Yehuda met my sister at the university in Jerusalem. Miriam’s land lady thought he was her brother, and let Yehuda visit her. I use to tell Yehuda we are going to be family one day.
    Yehuda met Myrna who became his wife. My cousin Sherri married Myrna’s cousin Lloyd, and my prediction came through. We did become family. The last time I spoke to Yehuda I told him that a psychologist at the Cleveland clinic in Weston Florida said Yehuda was still the gold standard in the psychology field even after he was retired. I can tell he got a kick out of me telling him that he was so highly thought of. Yehuda’s contribution was unbelievable to so many people he helped. He will be missed.

  2. Dear Myrna and family ,
    My heart is with you at this time . It has been 25 and half years of hearing Yehuda s voice in my daily prayers of hope . …. he taught unconditional love , acceptance and strength and courage but most of all how to use our intelligence and gifts to overcome . May he Rest In Peace ☮️ but most of all I know he would be so very proud of Hillary and Alexander . Even though the focus was always on Jeffrey being a S/O gave me a higher education to give to my children . With love Joan

  3. My name is Neil. Dr. Yishay helped met him as I recovered from a brain injury in 1980. He was an incredible psychologist and man who dedicated his life to helping others. I remember meeting him at 34th and 1st in NY at NYU. It was an honor to meet such a great man. He was smart, funny and caring. He will be missed by everyone and always loved by the lives he has touched.

  4. I was lucky to be his neighbor for several years and Yehuda was not just a brilliant doctor but a gentleman and kind to everyone.
