We were so painfully hurt to hear this news. Mar Klein was a force in our family, educating all three of our children at some point in their Beth El attendance. He helped shape each of them to be Hebrew speakers, daveners and Torah readers. We feel a great loss and wish you our heartiest condolences. May his memory be a blessing and may you be comforted by all.

I am a 66 year old man and pretty certain that your dad was my Hebrew school teacher at Mikro Kodesh Anshe Tikten on Foster and California in Chicago. That was 58 or so years ago. He taught 1st and 3rd grades 4 days a week after school. His students loved him. We all didn't really want to be there but he not only made it educational but also fun playing Herbrew baseball- speed reading passages or Hebrew tic tac toe asking questions in order to earn an X or O. Before class, the boys would play softball in the adjacent lot and when it was time for class, he would lean out the classroom window and say "let's go". Occasionally, he would come over and hit a few softballs over the fence. My condolences to your family.

I will forever remember Mr. Aaron Klein and the best and most fun Hebrew School teacher I ever had. Unfortunately, girls were not as highly recognized as boys in some circles, but in Mr. Klein's class, and especially in Hebrew baseball, Mr. Klein empowered girls to shine! I will always be grateful for that foundational Jewish experience. My condolence to the family. I recall him speaking so fondly and with humor about his young family during those years. Zichrono livracha.

Mr. Klein was my Hebrew school teacher back in the day at MKAT on Foster Avenue . He was the "cool" teacher you wanted to have . As an adult , we reconnected and would laugh at how I turned out ok despite being a "mazic" back in Hebrew school . Great guy. May his memory be for a blessing .
