Ron was born in 1955 in Brooklyn, NY. His father was a practicing Chiropractor and later switched into sales. Ron had three siblings; two brothers and a sister. Both his brothers live in Israel, one works on a Kibbutz and the other is a Rabbi.
After graduating high school, Ron worked as a New York city cab driver, got married and had two children, a boy and a girl. Now Ron is a proud grandfather of two grandchildren. Ron hasn’t had it easy. After getting divorced, he developed Prostate cancer and moved into his parents’ home. Thankfully, he went into remission and is doing much better. He parents however passed away, and Ron had no choice but to move into an ALF. Ron only recently discovered the TOP class while we were learning about the Bracha of Asher Yotzar and appreciation for our health. It was then that Ron talked about his battle with prostate cancer and his gratitude in winning the battle.
