In the past week, we have all clung to family and friends and media hoping for good news about Blaze Bernstein's return. Unfortunately, with heavy hearts we received the tragic news that his body was found.
Together, as a community we hoped, and today, as community we grieve. There are no words to express our deepest condolences. There are no actions to make the loss easier. Nevertheless, we share our thoughts and prayers for the Bernstein family.
Should you wish to honor Blaze and his memory, the family has established the Blaze Bernstein Memorial Fund at the Jewish Community Foundation Orange County. This money will be given to organizations that help children and families in need.
May the Bernstein family be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.
