In sorrow, we inform you of the passing of Leo Bernstein z"l, father of our member, Paul (Lisa Capelouto) Bernstein and grandfather of Alyx and Ana Bernstein.
The funeral and shiva has taken place in London. 

The final night of shiva will be at Beth El Synagogue Center with minyan at 4:40 PM on Sunday, January 9 2022. If you would like to sign up to attend minyan please click HERE. The Bernstein family will be accepting visitors in the Fayer Ballroom at Beth El after minyan until 7:30 PM. 


Proof of COVID vaccination will be required to enter Beth El Synagogue Center for the shiva. Please bring your CDC card or Excelsior digital pass even if you have previously completed an attestation form. Masks will be required at all times in the building. 

Messages of condolence may be sent to Paul at Just as with a shiva visit in which the mourner is not expected to "entertain"/care for others during this time, please do not expect a reply, but know that your message is a great source of comfort to Paul as he navigates his loss.


May the Bernstein family be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.
