Grandson Bob Frenkel wrote on September 30, 2020:
“My grandfather had been a top law student at university, but in view of anti-Jewish prejudice had not been permitted to practice law. He was learned in Judaism, Hebrew and Latin, and in fact taught me the passages from the Torah to read at my bar mitzvah in 1952, at Ohel Leah Synagogue. I remember that the rabbi (Raymond Eleazer) came to our house before my bar mitzvah to check that I could correctly recite the required passages. Apparently I could; my grandfather had done a good job teaching me.”
