I am so sorry for your loss he was such a nice guy and I loved seeing him in the office.

I never met Israel face to face but our exchanges of emails regarding the preservation of our Jewish Heritage in Egypt quickly impressed me with his sensitivity, intelligence and caring. His precise and articulate prose helped me navigate complex issues through his insights. I wish I had met him, and as it is, I will still miss him greatly.
My sincere condolences to his family and like they say in Egypt let what was taken away from his life be added to yours.
