Dr. David Gutmann



May David Gutmann be folded in glory under the eternal wings of the Shechinah and may we all remember his story and the stories of all the other heroes who were part of Aliyah Bet. I hope he is now telling stories and cracking jokes and is reunited with his old shipmates.

May his family, especially his daughter Stephanie and sister Yona, be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.
