Charles (Charlie) Schiffman was my friend

Charles Schiffman was my friend.
His memory will live with me for the rest of my life!
He was an amazing man, I will miss him.

President and CEO
It is with great sadness that I inform you and our entire Jewish community that Charlie Schiffman (Tzadok Reuven Halevy) passed away this morning. Charlie served our community as the Jewish Federation Executive Director for 23 years. Upon his retirement, Charlie moved to Israel and lived in Jerusalem with his wife, Marsha. Charlie was a passionate lover and supporter of the Jewish people and the State of Israel.
Our thoughts go out to his beloved wife, Marsha, beautiful daughter, Nili, and their grandchildren. May Charlie’s memory be for a blessing and his family comforted by all other mourners in Zion.

I am a friend of Marsha and Charlie's from St. Louis. Do you have current contact information for Marsha? We have lost track since their move to Isael. Had Charlie been ill?

Thank you.
