BOCA RATON, FL ( — Templ B’Nai Torah is confirming in an email to members Thursday that Jared Weiner and Ori Rom are among the seven local Pebb Enterprises employees killed in this week’s Akron plane crash.

Dear Friends,

It is with the deepest sadness that we inform you of the deaths of our beloved Jared Weiner and Ori Rom. They died in a plane crash on Tuesday along with five co-workers and two pilots.

Jared, a former member of our board of directors, is the husband of Amanda, father of Jonah and Zoe, and the son of Carla and Bruce Weiner. Ori is the husband of Laurel, the son of Dalia and Henry Rom, and son-in-law of Carla and Bruce. The family’s pain is immeasurable.

The funeral for Jared and for Ori will take place after their bodies are returned to Boca Raton. Funeral and shiva details will be shared as soon as they are available.

The outpouring of concern, love and condolence has been overwhelming. The family knows that so many of you are thinking about them, that you share in their grief, and that as a community we will do whatever we can to alleviate even a small amount of their suffering.

We are concerned for all of Jared and Ori’s friends who are experiencing this trauma in their own way. A group session with trained grief counselors and our rabbis will be scheduled for early next week.

All expressions of sympathy should be expressed in notes and letters to the care of Bruce and Carla Weiner at 7099 Ayrshire Lane, Boca Raton, FL 33496-1419. Contributions in Jared and Ori’s memory are best directed to support the families of the other victims of this tragedy. Donations can be made via this link:

We stand together in grief and sadness. Our community is with the Weiner, Rom, Letwin, and Rosenberg families who mourn their loss. May they be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.

Rabbi David Steinhardt & Rabbi David Englander
