Tampa

Aaron Berger 92 of Tampa, FL died May 29, 2023 at 1:56 a.m. Eastern. He was born on May 18, 1931, in Cernowitz, Romania. Having survived the atrocities of Nazi Germany during WW2, Aaron immigrated to Israel on the Haganah ship in 1947. He witnessed the birth of Modern Israel and proudly served in the Israeli Military during its war for independence (1948 Arab–Israeli War).

A resident of Tampa, FL since 1959; Aaron was an influential member of Tampa’s Jewish community for the past 64 years. He had the honor of witnessing and shaping the tremendous growth of both the city and community. An Electrician, beginning in Israel and continuing in the United States; Aaron volunteered his services throughout the Tampa Bay community as a Mitzvah (good deed) to those in need.


Aaron spent his life in service of others, always placing the needs of others before his. In Judaism we start our daily prayers with the statement “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Aaron modified this to “Love your neighbor better than yourself” for he always put others first. 


Aaron is survived by his love for the past 33 years, Shulamit (Sylvia) McKay, her sons, Yakov (James), Shalomo (Raymond) and Doyle and daughters Anna and Zora. His son Martin Tasimowicz and daughter Ruth Kantor, 6 grandchildren (Ashley, Micheal, Chelsea, Asher, Jonathan and Max) and 4 great grandchildren. As well as a large extended family in Israel.
