Zev Wolfson ZTL, quiet grand philanthropist passed away this past week at 84 years of age.
What is amazing about this individual is how many charities he supported, yet still was able to retain a certain amount of anonymity.
Reading the papers this week, I was amazed by the sheer amount of organizations who placed full page advertisements in the newspapers thanking him and his family for their support throughout the years.
The spectrum of support ranged from Chareidi institutions to Modern institutions, from the USA to Israel, Domestic (Shalom Task Force) causes, the IDF, Kiruv Institutions and a myriad of others.
Yet the most mind boggling of all is that there is nary a Wikipedia entry on him. I wonder if this was because he was so humble and hidden, or perhaps he was able to pay others to remove him from the limelight.
In any event, Yehi Zichro Baruch!
