Sandy and I were sad to learn of Steve’s passing. Steve married us nearly 46 years ago. We knew Steve and his wife when we were students in Philly. I was Hillel President at Philadelphia College of Textiles and Science. Somehow Steve’s name came up in conversation today. We were shocked to learn of his passing. May his memory be for a blessing.

When Stuart I and my son Joshua moved here in 1994, Steve welcomed us to Beth el. He did a great Job with my son Joshua's Bar Mitzvah and my daughter Hannah's Bat Mitzvah. We also went on the 2007 Israel trip which he lead for the post B'nai Mitzvah families. He did a great job. Stuart and I visited our Israeli relatives in the lobby of the hotel in Tel Aviv and Steve happened to come by and asked who these people were. We explained that they were our Israeli relatives and he was very nice to them. Steve will be missed.
