We are deeply saddened at the passing of Ray Alpert on June 11, 2014.
Ray was a long-time Federation, Foundation and Alpert Jewish Community Center leader. The Alperts have been pillars in the community for over 50 years. Their passion for a strong Jewish community is apparent from their generous involvement in the Alpert Jewish Community Center, which bears their name, the Barbara and Ray Alpert Endowed Chair in Jewish Studies at CSULB, Long Beach Hillel, Jewish Family & Children's Services, the Alpert New Leaders Forum, the California Conference for Equality and Justice, and Temple Israel of Long Beach.
We were very fortunate to have Ray in our community. May his memory be a blessing.
