Reuven Katz passed away on April 3 due to complications related to COVID-19.

Originally a native of Romania, he lived for a time in Israel before settling in São Paulo, Brazil—a country that has been devastated by the coronavirus.

Ever young, Katz retained his youthful exuberance and zest for life, and loved his family, working and Israeli culture.
