Alex was born in 1937 in Varenz Poland. The fear of the Nazis forced the family out of their home, seeking refuge in the countryside. The year was 1941. The father of the family was poisoned by a farmer, and the burden of survival was assumed by the mother. She had to contend with two powerful enemies, the Nazis and hunger. The last two years of the German occupation mother and son were sheltered by a kind Polish landowner in a small underground bunker. After the war, Alex’s mother remarried, and the family moved to Israel. Alex completed high school and spent 2 ½ years in the Israeli army. He joined the family in the U.S. after his army service. Following graduation from college and the Jewish Theological Seminary, Alex dedicated his life to Jewish education. He retired in 2009 from his position as Principal of the East Meadow Jewish Center. He and his wife Susan presently reside on Long Island, and are blessed with 2 children and 8 grandchildren.
