at the age of 17, with his mother and his young brother. He immediate ly went to work,
while sending his brother to yeshiva. In no time, he demonstrated a brilliant business
mind, and is today a major New York City real estate developer and a very astute Wall

locations in downtown Manhattan, which started his very successful real estate business.
Zev Wolfson is blessed with a very large family with many grandchildren. He and his wife are known for many charity activities in the community. He was lways close to many "giants" in theTorah world: Rav Aaron Kotler, z"], and Rav Pam, shlita, to name only two.
For over forty years, he has demonstrated a tremendous devotion to actions surrounding the furtherance of Jewish education. His relentless efforts, supported by the biggest authorities in governments in the USA and overseas, have helped develop and maintain yeshivot, Batel Yaacov, day schools, and other projects in Israel and all over the world.

His motto has always been, "I work for the Jewish children".
