Dear Friends,

It is with great sadness that I share with you the death of Lester Kravitz, zichrono livrachah (may his memory be a blessing), a member of the Pelham Jewish Center.

Lester is survived by his wife, Rosalie; his children, Lisa and her husband Isaac Mamaysky, and Mara; and his grandchildren, Eve and Levi.

There will be a small graveside funeral on Tuesday, Nov. 27, at 1 p.m. at:

Wellwood Cemetery
1400 Wellwood Ave.
West Babylon, New York, 11704

Following the funeral, the family will be sitting shiva at the Kravitz home, 1038 Peace Street, Pelham Manor, New York, through Monday, Dec. 3.

Visitors are welcome on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday, 2 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Minyan on each of those days will be at 5:30 p.m.

I wish Rosalie, Lisa and Isaac, Mara, Eve, and Levi and the rest of the family healing during this difficult time. May they all be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.
