I was hoping that someone would have information about Greg.  I met him in 10th grade and we used to ride 10-speeds out to Geauga County and back on weekends.  The last time I saw him was when he came down to Oxford to visit one weekend at Miami Unuversity in 1968.  I took him out on Lake Acton in a little sailboat I rented, which he proceeded to capsize.  R.I.P.

Cabinet-maker Gregory (Gershon) Alan Polot, who designed and built Torah arks and prayer stands for synagogues in New York and San Diego, died May 28 (2009) in Brooklyn, N.Y. He was 60.
In addition to his synagogue work, he built bookcases and cabinets for homes in Cleveland and New York, and he loved teaching woodworking to children, which he did briefly at a yeshiva in Brooklyn. Mr. Polot, who was very interested and knowledgeable in natural nutrition, enjoyed bicycling, music, reading, and being around people.

Born in Chicago, Mr. Polot grew up in Cleveland and graduated from Cleveland Heights High School. He earned his bachelor's degree in psychology from Ohio University. Around 1987, he moved to Borough Park in Brooklyn, where he was a member of the Strettiner Rebbe's Congregation.
Mr. Polot is survived by his sister Judi Wachsberger. Contributions are suggested to the American Friends of Hatzolah Daron (Emergency Response of Southern Israel), 1271-45th St., Brooklyn, N.Y. 11219.

WOW THis was one of our classmates. I didn't know him but the fund that money in his memory goes to is a very special fund that has saved the lives of children under fire from Aza.  Baruch Dayan EMet.
