Shlomo Bentin died in a traffic accident on July 13th 2012. Shlomo was an amazing man and had a great impact not only on psychological and brain science but also directly on the lives of so many people. He had a unique passion for life and for scientific discovery. He was a strong man with a soft heart and his exuberant presence was always felt and admired.

This blog is a place where people can share their experiences and memories of Shlomo. He was an extremely lively man who cherished his family, friends, work and academic accomplishments and we hope this blog will help to celebrate his life as he always did.

A Memorial for Shlomo Bentin

Wednesday, July 18th
4:00 pm

We are deeply saddened by the death of our friend, Shlomo Bentin.  We have lost a wonderful person, colleague, and scientist.  The Psychology Department was very fortunate to have Shlomo spend time with us so often over the years, benefitting from his wisdom at department lectures and enjoying his infectious enthusiasm for science and life.

Together with Shlomo’s wife Miri and their children, the department will host a memorial tribute to Shlomo on Wednesday, July 18th at 4 pm.  This will provide an opportunity to share our sorrow and celebrate his life.
