Dr. Mitchell, Dr. Leslie, Hannah & Ari WeissDecember 31, 2017
Dr. Mitchell Weiss 52, Dr. Leslie Weiss 50, Hannah Weiss 19, and Ari Weiss 16, of Belleair, tragically perished as the result of a plane crash in Punta Islita, Costa Rica on December 31, 2017.
Due to the complexity and time involved in having Mitchell, Leslie, Hannah and Ari returned to Clearwater for burial, the family will be proceeding with a memorial service to honor their lives.
The memorial being planned will primarily take place at CONGREGATION B'NAI ISRAEL, 300 58th Street North, St. Petersburg.

Due to the anticipated number of people in attendance which would exceed the capacity of Congregation B'nai Israel, additional satellite venues with live streaming of the service have been confirmed. The locations are-
Temple Ahavat Shalom, 1575 Curlew Road, Palm Harbor FL 34683
Temple B'nai Israel, 1685 S. Belcher Road, Clearwater FL 33764
