As you probably heard…

Gidon’s father passed away on Monday morning Israel time. His brother and sister came to Israel to spend part of the traditional seven days of mourning together and they will be returning to their home towns in the US before the Sabbath.

We were deeply grateful to have had the opportunity to have Dad near us for the past two plus months, and we were also grateful that we were able to fulfill his wish to return to Israel and to die and be buried here.

I hope that Gidon will have time to write up some of the words he spoke in his eulogy. My father-in-law was an extraordinary man, a holocaust survivor, and a lover of humanity.

  1. Gidon and Dev, I am so sorry to hear about Saba Pinchus…(I remember him visiting when I was studying with you!) My thoughts are with you, and I wish you healing in the time to come.
