The Yad Sarah family is saddened by the sudden passing of one of its most active and dedicated supporters. Bob and his wife Suzan have both been involved with Yad Sarah in many capacities over the years.

Several years ago, Yad Sarah correspondent Leaore Siegel, described for the newsletter the "Bridge of Chesed" Bob had built between New York and Jerusalem. Bob had volunteered in the equipment workshop at Yad Sarah House in Jerusalem and got the idea that he could collect unused medical equipment in New York and send it to Jerusalem, to Yad Sarah. Bob told the newsletter that he had sent ten fully loaded 40 foot containers over a period of five years. Bob described the feeling he had when he beheld the fully loaded containers, full of canes, walkers, crutches, hospital beds, wheelchairs, and more. "Sometimes I stand and look at the full container and I'm simply amazed – did I collect all this?" Bob convinced others to help him make his dream into a reality. First, he convinced people to donate equipment, Jews and non-Jews alike. Then, he involved Moishe's Trucking, who donated trucks, drivers, and movers. Flat-Rate Shipping took care of storage and loading. Local synagogues donated storage space. Neighbors collected the equipment when Bob was in Israel. Bob's wife, Sue, is also a Yad Sarah volunteer. She volunteered in the sewing room, but now guides tours at Yad Sarah House in Jerusalem. Yad Sarah will miss Bob and his "Bridge of Chesed" very much. He was truly an inspiration to all who met him. May the family be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.
