“With great sadness I report to you the passing of a great man a great educator a wonderful father and grandfather and great grandfather” wrote Rabbi Zalman Bukiet about his father-in-law, noting that for many years he contributed his knowledge to the community of Boca Raton, Florida.
For many years he ran “Advanture Camp” for teenage boys during the summer months, up until a few years ago. For many, the camp was an exciting opportunity and couldn’t wait to participate.
