Abstract: Rita Frankel (b. 1929), a social worker and active member in the Jewish community, was born in Cleveland, Ohio, to Manny and Eva Heisler Hartenbaum. She married Burton Frankel in 1953, and later earned her M.A. in Counseling and Human Services from John Carroll University. She was employed as Displaced Worker Service Coordinator and Counselor at Cuyahoga Community College from 1978 to 1991. Esther Metzendorf Fischgrund, a relative of Frankel's, was a widely respected businesswoman and community leader. Following her marriage to Seymour Fischgrund in 1916, the couple opened Fish Furniture on Euclid Avenue in downtown Cleveland.
