Note: This special tribute was written by the Federation’s Central Galilee-Michigan Partnership Family in Israel.

We would like to extend our deepest condolences and share our sorrow with the entire Charfoos/Goldhaber family, for the heartbreaking news of Ron’s passing.

Ron was special, he worked to constantly strengthen the relationship between Israel and the US and connect our two partnership communities.

He was a member of the partnership steering committee, and he was always passionate, devoted and dedicated to strengthening the ties between us, throughout the thirty years of our partnership activities.

The partnership program and the interpersonal ties were very significant for Ron, and he was one of the main supporters of its importance and the need for its growth and continuity.

He chose to invest a lot of time and effort in the partnership’s activities and join all the steering committee visits over the years.

He was dedicated and committed to the project of building the partnership, he expressed a passion that was also expressed in his great generosity.

He sponsored the establishment of a memorial at the Hermelin Village in Camp Tamarack, for the passing of a fallen soldier, Hanan ben Amram, who was an ICP (Israeli Camper Program) camper who died in a car accident during his army service.

Ron was a caring, warm and sensitive person who always had a big smile on his face every time he visited us.

We send our condolences and hugs to the dear Charfoos family. May his memory be for a blessing.

יהי זכרו ברוך ❤️
