Life Story

Benjamin Blutstein had completed two years of study at Machon Pardes, and was to begin an additional two years in a joint program in the Pardes Educators Program and Hebrew University in the fall. In 2000, he earned a B.A. in Religion and Judaic Studies from Dickinson College in Carlisle, PA. He was the president of Hillel at Dickinson College in 1998-1999. He has been described as living a life of contradictions, his kippah, his tzitzit and his earrings portraying images of what he was. He brought joy to many with his laughter and as a popular disco DJ known as "Benny the B." While studying in the summer ulpan, Benjamin was killed in the July 31, 2002 attack at the Hebrew University cafeteria. Ben is survived by his parents, Richard and Katherine, and a sister. He was laid to rest at the Kesher Israel Cemetery in Harrisburg.
