With sadness we inform you of the passing of Harvey Kaylie ob”m, husband of Gloria, father of Roberta and Alicia Kaylie and grandfather to Lee and Hudson Kaylie.

Throughout their lives the Kaylies have made giving a priority. Today, their philanthropy has helped young people with developmental disabilities integrate with their peers via Camp Kaylie; benefitted Jewish education through support of Yeshiva University, Yeshiva Har Torah in Great Neck, and a variety of Jewish Federations. They have impacted social services and health care in the United States and Israel.

Shiva will be observed until Tuesday morning, June 5 at the Kaylie residence, 5 Fir Drive, Great Neck, N.Y. More information on shiva to follow.

Please use the comments feature to share your recollections of Harvey Kaylie.


  1. We are so sorry to hear of the passing of this fine man.My nephew who attends the camp speaks so fondly of the day that he came to Camp.As a result of the Kaylie’s generosity my nephew is able to attend Camp and thrive there.He will be sorely missed.May your family be comforted among the mourners of klal yisroel.May you know of no more sorrow.His neshama should have an Aliya.So sorry for your loss.

  2. All of us here at Read to Succeed Buffalo are saddened to hear of the passing of Harvey Kaylie. He was such a warm and lovely man and Buffalo was lucky to have him as a part of our community. He and Gloria graciously and generously supported our organization and I personally will miss his visits and treasure his book.
