Reuven Rahamim with wife Shereen and son Sami
ST. LOUIS PARK, Minn. - Close to one thousand people attended a funeral Sunday honoring the life of Reuven Rahamim.
"He was a neighbor, a friend, and a community man," said Judith Ingber, a friend of Reuven. "That's how we'll remember him, not from the evil that finished him."
The service at Beth El Synagogue in St. Louis Park brought friends, family, and community leaders including Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak. Rahamim, 62, was the owner and founder of Accent Signage, the same place his life was tragically taken away.
"The signs he made for people were such a symbol for what he stood for," said Inger referring to the signs developed for people living with disabilities. "He wanted to help people go forward."
Services were also held Sunday for Rami Cooks. Like Rahamim, Cooks was also an Israeli immigrant. He was a production manager at Accent Signage.
