Worked for Alvin for a few years in the late 1960s when he was partners with Alvin Weinstein.
A very bright and kiind and soft spoken man.

I first knew Alvin as a young congregant at Niles Township Synagogue (later to become Ezra Habonim). During Alvin's participation at this synagogue, and to a smaller extent personally, I remember Alvin, and Lenore, as wonderful individuals who certainly made the world a better place by their presence. A religious man who lived and practiced what he believed. My wife Bonnie and I will truly miss Alvin and his quiet humanity.
