Gray to be honored in distance learning event May 19

Posted May 11, 2016 in Articles

Al Gray, a resident of Stone Gardens Assisted Living at Menorah Park in Beachwood, recently submitted a dream to the Menorah Park DREAM Team to help educate campus residents and the community about the Enola Gay.

Gray was among the donors who gave funds to help restore and preserve the historic aircraft.

In honor of Gray’s dream, the DREAM Team scheduled an educational distance learning event 3 p.m. May 19 at Menorah Park. It is a live program with the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C., in partnership with the Ohio History Connection.

While Gray is not part of the distance learning program, and is not affiliated with the Smithsonian, he will share his passion for preserving the plane that he says in the end saved thousands of lives – with campus residents and program attendees prior to the distance learning session.

The Enola Gay was the plane used to drop the first atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Japan, in World War II. The aircraft sat ignored for years, but now it’s displayed in the Smithsonian.

Gray, a philanthropist and Jewish activist, is resident council president of Stone Gardens and a past president of the Mandel Jewish Community Center in Beachwood. He also was active with Amnesty International, the American Jewish Congress and the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee.
