Ohr Torah Stone mourns the passing of Robert M. Beren, z”l. 

Mr. Beren was a man of unwavering principles and extraordinary integrity. His life was guided by a deep commitment to excellence; he set the bar high for himself and inspired excellence in his philanthropic partners around him. Mr. Beren was enormously generous, investing heavily in education, which he believed to be the key to change, as well as in honoring the Jewish past and ensuring the unity and continuity of the worldwide Jewish community.

As a true partner of Ohr Torah Stone, Mr. Beren played an integral role in our organization’s development. His involvement and strategic insights extended to every stage of growth, from meticulously examining building blueprints to envisioning the mission and purpose of each project.

Mr. Beren’s legacy will continue to inspire thousands of OTS students and alumni who spend time in one of the institutions bearing his name including the Beren Academic Center, Robert M. Beren College, Robert M. Beren Machanaim Hesder Yeshiva and the Beren-Amiel Emissary Training Institute.

We extend our deepest condolences to Mr. Beren’s children: Nancy Beren and Larry S. Jefferson, Amy and Robert Bressman, Julie and Marc Platt, and Adam and Ellen Beren; his 14 grandchildren and 20 great-grandchildren. 

Yehi Zichro Livracha – May his memory be a blessing.
