In Loving Memory of Bucky Stein
We owe much of the success of the Wilmington Jewish Film Festival to Bucky due to his generosity in all aspects of the festival. Not only was he an important benefactor, but he worked tirelessly to make sure the festival would be successful. He was passionate and spirited in every aspect of the festival. When he served as co-chair of the film selection committee, he would often watch 50-60 films in order to select the handful of films that were ultimately screened. He was our fundraiser extraordinaire and always tried to out-do his goal each year from the year before. We are grateful for the legacy Bucky has left us and he will be sorely missed. May his memory forever be for a blessing.
