I remember him from Camp B'nai Brith Senior Group where I worked with the seniors and he had a lovely time there for 2 weeks .He participated in all activities and especially enjoyed singing Yiddish songs and everybody loved listening to his wonderful stories. What an amazing person he was. May he rest in peace.

Very sincere condolences to Naftali’s family. When I retired from The Steger, the residents gave me a send off in the Activity room.
