Man of Steel  

Founding Partner of Bar Processing (a major steel processor for automotive parts); Past President of Federation and the Jewish Community Center; astute fundraiser, strategic community planner and avid supporter of Israel; naming sponsor the Loving Acts of Kindness Fund and JCC’s annual “Matzah Factory.” An aficionado of model trains since childhood, proud to become a Bar Mitzvah at the age of 63.
