Nessim Bouskila

Nessim Bouskila died July 22 at 85. Born in Marrakesh, Morocco in 1924, Bouskila was a descendant of a long line of distinguished rabbis who originated in Spain. In 1948, he volunteered to serve in the War of Independence in the newborn State of Israel. He served in the elite Palmach unit and saw combat during significant campaigns. In Paris, he was an haute couture costumer, and he brought that talent with him to the United States, where, for 30 years, he was the head costumer for Aaron Spelling Television in Los Angeles. He lived in Los Angeles since 1961 and was a longtime member of Sephardic Temple Tifereth Israel, where his son Daniel has been the rabbi for the past 16 years. Bouskila passed away on Rosh Chodesh Av, the same Hebrew date his beloved wife of 42 years, Alice, passed away 12 years ago. He is survived by his daughters, Sylvie and Orly; his son, Daniel (Peni); and his loving grandchildren, Shira and Ilan. Funeral services were held July 23 at Home of Peace Memorial Park.
