Steven Odzer Shares the Meaning of Having a Large Family

While he is a successful businessman, a supporter of the Republican Jewish Coalition, and a member of Economic Club, Steven Odzer is a family man foremost. “I have seven kids, and I will soon welcome my tenth grandchild,” he says with a smile. Creating a legacy for his family is one of the things that keeps him going. At the end of a long day, Steven Odzer likes to come home to his wife and his younger children who still live at home. He learned everything he knows about the value of family from his father, Seymour Odzer. Steven Odzer hopes to create a legacy similar to the one his father left behind. “My father taught me to surround myself with important people,” Steven said.

Not only is Steven Odzer proud of his immediate family, but he’s also extremely close to his extended family. “I have many family members living in Israel,” Steven says. The entire family likes to stay in touch. This past October 14th, the family honored his cousin Nachston Wachsman on the 25th anniversary of his kidnap and murder. In 1994, at the age of 19, the military instructed him to attend a one-day training in northern Israel when he was on leave. His family expected him home on Sunday night, October 9th, 1994, but sadly he never made it back. The memorial of Nachshon Wachsman on his 25th death anniversary, while sad, made everyone appreciate the importance of family. Businesses and money come and go, but for Steven Odzer, his family is what’s important.

With over 30 years of experience in the distribution industry, Steven Odzer has achieved a lot in his life. He is currently the CEO of the new YBT Industries of Henderson, NV. Steven Odzer attended Yeshiva of Flatbush High School and then to the Brooklyn College Scholars program. At the age of 18, when he started his first company out of his parent’s basement, he sold napkins, paper cups, and plates door to door in his neighborhood of Flatbush. All his accomplishments in the industry earned Steven the title of Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year in 2000 in the area of distribution.

When Steven Odzer is not taking care of his family, he likes to support other worthy causes. He is a big supporter of Jewish and non-Jewish causes, the Arab-Jewish business cooperation.

Steven Odzer (5)During his speech, President Trump talked about his plan to move production factories back to the U.S. and help the American People. In his speech, President Trump addressed withstand on phase one of the Trade Deal with China. “A significant ‘phase one’ trade deal with China could happen. [It] could happen soon. But we will only accept a deal if it’s good for the United States and our workers and our great companies because we’ve been hit very hard,” said President Trump. President Trump mentioned how Americans are now forced to work two or three jobs and make a lot less money than they made 21 years ago.

President Trump also inspired the audience by saying, “We have ended the war on American workers, we have stopped the assault on [the] American industry, and we have launched an economic boom the likes of which we have never seen before.”

Steven Odzer Salutes a ‘Holy Martyr’

For businessman Steven Odzer, his family is the most important thing. As far as his immediate family, he has seven children and nine grandchildren. He claims his nine grandchildren keep him on his toes, and they also keep him young. Aside from his large immediate family, he also has many family members in Israel. It saddens the family a great deal to have to remember and honor Nachshon Mordechal Wachsman, Steven’s Cousin, on the 25th anniversary of his kidnapping and subsequent death.

Steven Odzer opens up to what he felt when he received the news that Palestinian captors had kidnapped his cousin. Although the entire family had been praying for a safe release from the kidnappers, things didn’t go as planned during the rescue mission. “We had asked Hashem for Nachshon’s safe release from his captors,” Steven said. When Steven Odzer heard his cousin had been killed, his first reaction was to say a blessing, “Baruch Dayan Ha-emes.” This is a traditional blessing recited when one hears news of a death; it means “Blessed is the True Judge”.

On the day he received the tragic news that left its mark on the entire family forever, Steven Odzer had made a stop in Borough Park, Brooklyn, to ask a rabbi for a blessing for his cousin Nachshon before going to meet his other relatives for Shabbat.

To honor his departed cousin, Steven Odzer, his wife, Shani, and four hundred other members of the community gathered. Among those who gathered, the list included visiting family and local politicians. The service took place at the renovated Synagogue, Congregation Bais Tefilah.

During the service, the attendees were blessed with great weather. “God has blessed this day,” said Thomas Gulotta, a Nassau County Executive. Other attendees agreed that God had blessed the occasion.

 

Steven Odzer | Conclusion

During the ceremony, Rabbi Shaya Richmond referred to Nachshon as a “holy martyr.” He also gave the family comfort when he said, “The martyrs of Israel enjoy an exalted position in heaven.” Other speakers also said thoughtful words under the American and Israeli flags. To honor Nachshon and those who have lost their lives for Israel, a plaque was unveiled, and it read, “In life, he protected his country. In death, he united his people.”

Despite the fact that this was a terrible loss for Steven Odzer and his family, they will continue to honor the life of Nachshon forever. Steven Odzer is also passionate about making a difference in the lives of Jewish people. He supports a myriad of Jewish and non-Jewish causes.
