LIBI USA mourns the loss of Herbert M. Heinstein, a founding board member since 2004 who tirelessly managed the financial oversight of LIBI USA and was responsible for establishing the all-volunteer ethic that continues to permeate LIBI USA today.

 As a U.S. Army veteran, Herbert intuited the needs of the Israeli soldiers and championed for medical equipment and educational and social programs to protect and enrich their lives. Paul Lipoff, former president of LIBI USA, remembers Herbert’s legacy and love for the IDF, saying he was “fiercely committed to the security of Israel and the welfare of the soldiers who defend it.” Herbert’s family has requested that all expressions of sympathy in Herbert’s memory be made to LIBI USA.
