With sadness and a heavy heart we report the painful loss of R’ Shmuel (Sammy) Rohr of blessed memory. Sammy was a beloved patron of the activities of the FJC; his success in business was surpassed by his love for his family and his legendary philanthropy.
Sammy Rohr was a Holocaust survivor, which was in love with the Jewish people, supporting projects that would not only ensure our survival but make every effort to see the Jewish people, especially young Jews, such as those in the Former Soviet Union (CIS) and around the world, thrive!
He leaves behind him a great legacy, an incredible family and a world that is a far better place, due to his generosity and grace.
We will miss him but the heavens must be rejoicing, embracing him with the same love and devotion that he showed those fortunate enough to know him and the countless who benefited from his support.
May his family be consoled by all the goodness that he did throughout his life – always within good health.
