YWN regrets to inform you of the Petira of R’ Zev Wolfson Z”L, a resident of Lawrence, NY, at the age of 84. He was one of the most prominent philanthropists of Torah & Chesed worldwide.
Mr. Wolfson was born in Vilna, Poland, and came to America at the age of 17 with his mother and his young brother. He immediately went to work, while sending his brother to yeshiva. In no time, he demonstrated a brilliant business mind and turned into a major NYC real estate developer and a very astute Wall Street investor. Among Mr. Wolfson’s many projects was a magnificent skyscraper in a prime location in downtown Manhattan, which started his very successful real estate business.
Mr. Wolfson was blessed with a large family, and many grandchildren. Among his children are R’ Avrohom, R’ Moshe, R’ Aharon and R’ Daniel.
The levaya will take place on Tues, August 14th, at 10:30AM, in the Bais Medrash of Yeshiva Sh’or Yoshuv, 1 Cedar Lawn Avenue, Lawrence, NY 11559.
Shiva will be observed at the Wolfson residence, 140 Harborview East, Lawrence, NY 11559 through Monday after shacharis.
