Michael Benjamin Glaser, Age 7, of St. Paul Died July 26, 2006 at home Survived by parents, David and Theresa Glaser; brother Zachary Glaser; sister Zoe Glaser; grandparents Barry and Rena Glaser, Charlotte Eisenkraft; great-grandparents June Larkin, Morris Hochberg and his wife Beverly; uncle and aunt Joel and Randee Glaser; cousin Sarah Glaser; great aunt and uncle Darlene and Marshall Kaplan; and many loving relatives. 


On August 5th, 2007, volunteers built the Michael Benjamin Glaser Community Playground on the Talmud Torah of St. Paul campus.  The official dedication ceremony is planned for later this fall.  Once the date is finalized it will be posted on this site.  You can see a few pictures of the new playground to the right.  Additional pictures will be added soon.  


The family would like to thank all of the friends and community members who volunteered their time to make this playground into a permanent tribute to Michael.  We would especially like to thank Michael Lewine for all of the time and effort he put forth to coordinate the project.  It is our hope that hundreds of Talmud Torah students as well as children from the community will be able to enjoy this beautiful new accessible playground for many years to come. 


In his short life with us, Michael inspired many as you will see throughout this site.  The Winter 2006 Gillette Chilren's Hospital newsletter "Momentum" featured an article about Michael and his trip to Washington, D.C. to serve as an embassador for children who have disabilities.  Click here if you would like to read the article.


The family would like to express its gratitude to the staff at Gillette Children's Specialty Hospital and all of Michael's loving, fantastic personal care attendants.  


This site is dedicated to keeping Michael's memory alive.  You can help by sharing your stories about Michael.  To share a memory about Michael or a picture please e-mail it to: .  Thank you.
