It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Alvin “Big Al” Elias z”l, dear husband of 65 years of Lenore, who was always by his side. Al was the cherished father of Beth Roscoe, Robyn Mizrahi, Ellen Elias and Sam (Robyn) Elias and the adored grandfather of Adam, Lauren, Ryan, Raya, Alexis and Jacob.
Alvin is predeceased by his parents, Sam and Esther as well as his brothers, Hy and Lenny, brother-in-law Eugene Levy, Son-in-law Jack Horvath and nephews Larry Levy and LJ Elias. Surviving Alvin is his little sister Phyllis Levy, whom he absolutely adored with all his heart. He was also loved by all of his adoring nieces and nephews.
A Trustee of Beth Torah Benny Rok Campus, Al helped build the synagogue into what it is today. From always performing in shows that the shul sponsored, to taking part as a Minyanaire and often helping raise funds with our beloved Rabbi Max, Al was considered one of the founding pillars of the synagogue.
Funeral services will take place on Sunday, October 23, 2016 at 12:30 pm at Levitt Weinstein, 18840 W Dixie Hwy, Miami, FL 33180, with interment at the Beth Torah Section at Lakeside Memorial Park, 10301 NW 25th St, Miami, FL 33172.
