Irving Goldfarb passed away Aug. 22, but his contributions to the Los Alamos community and particularly to the Los Alamos Jewish Center, continues today.
His daughter, Lynn Silberman, recalled that he not only built the family’s home on Barranca Mesa, he helped establish the Jewish Center.
Silberman said her father arrived in Los Alamos in 1945 and worked as a machinist at Los Alamos National Laboratory.
Lynn and her mother followed Goldfarb in 1946. Before working and living in Los Alamos, he worked at the Rock Island Arsenal.
