Providing Joy and Meaning for Florida Seniors

Steven Wrubel was born Nov. 10, 1952 in Brooklyn, NY. He has one sister, who lives in Pembroke Pines. In 1955, his family moved to Syosset, NY. It was there that he attended school and Hebrew school. After graduating high school, Steve attended the State University of New York, New Paltz. Steve’s family moved to Florida toward the end of 1971, so Steve finished college at FIU with a Bachelor of Arts in Modern American and European History. In 1973, Steve moved to Israel, met a girl there, and got married. The couple moved to France in the early 1980’s. In France, he became a school teacher and taught English as a Second Language. Around 1987, Steve moved back to America and entered the real estate business. Due to failing health, Steve had to go into an assisted living facility, first in Boynton Beach, then in Naples in Tuscany Villas, and finally to Pembroke Park. While in Naples, Steve was hounded by missionaries who tried to get him to convert and thought they succeeded. They even gave him a bible inscribed with the date of his acceptance of their religion. A couple of weeks ago, Steve invited me to his apartment and when I saw the bible he asked me if I wanted it, because he had no use for it. I took the bible and came back the next week with a sefer entitled, The Living Torah, by Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan, and a new electric shaver. But Steve wasn’t finished, he asked me if I could bring a pair of Tefillin the following week which I did and he proudly put them on! Steve Wrubel is the new poster boy for TOP!
