This weekend, including the dinner and brunch, is underwritten by the Stan and Ethel Katz Briller Jewish Education Fund of the Oregon Jewish Community Foundation.The Scholar-in-residence program is in memory of Yoni Suher, who died in a terrorist attack in Turkey in March, 2016.
Yonatan “Yoni” Suher, z”l
(March 16, 1976 – March 19, 2016)
Yoni Suher was tragically killed in March 2016 in a suicide bombing in central Istanbul, Turkey. Suher was on vacation with his wife, Inbal, celebrating his 40th birthday. The attack killed three Israelis and injured 11 more including Inbal, who underwent emergency surgery in Turkey and then in Israel. Inbal has since improved and is able to resume many of her previous activities.
Yoni had deep roots here at Neveh Shalom. Yoni’s father, Randy Suher, was a member of Neveh Shalom, and his grandmother, Ethel Katz (Suher) Briller, was a beloved longtime director of our Foundation School. Yoni was born into our CNS community before the family moved to Israel when he was one.
Yoni was the father of Goni (12) and Uri (9), son of Randy and Yael Suher, nephew of CNS member Brian (Barbara Atlas) Suher, and grandson of the late Ted Suher (z”l), a past president of Neveh Shalom in the late 1960s.
