JNS.org – Hundreds of people took to Facebook on Sunday to mourn the death of American public relations specialist Alan Weinkrantz, who died Saturday after a car whose driver was having a heart attack crashed into a restaurant in Tel Aviv. Weinkrantz, who was from San Antonio and worked closely with the Israeli high-tech industry, was praised for his entrepreneurial skills and contributions to Israel’s “start-up nation” culture.

Raphael Ouzan, an Israeli friend of Weinkrantz, wrote, “A sad day for the start-up nation.” Juan Camilo Coronel, another friend, posted, “RIP Alan Weinkrantz. I won’t ever forget your motto ‘always be helpful.’ If people would just convince themselves of how important having that mindset is, leaving no room for selfishness, the world would definitely be a much better place.”

Weinkrantz, who was 63, made many visits to Israel. Three people were killed in the car accident.
