Shimon Grama

The 22-year-old son of a teacher at Valley Torah High School died in a car accident on La Cienega Boulevard near Rodeo Road Monday afternoon.

Shimon Grama, the son of Rabbi Daniel and Ruth Grama, was heading home from the airport when he was involved in a major accident. He was brought to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead, according to the LAPD.

Grama was eulogized at a service at Beth Jacob Congregation on Tuesday afternoon and will be flown to Israel for burial, according to Yeshiva World News.

Rabbi Daniel Grama previously taught at YULA boys school and now teaches at Valley Torah High School for boys in Valley Village.

According to Yeshiva World News, Shimon Grama was invovled in various charitable organizations and volunteered last summer for Kids of Courage, which takes terminally ill children on week-long vacations.
