Joe Bograd’s son, Mark, invites his father’s friends in the furniture industry, to share in the celebration of Joe’s life. The information follows is listed below.

I am setting up a special Zoom Shiva for people in the furniture industry.  This was truly my Dad’s second family.  A Shiva is a Jewish event following the death of an individual that both celebrates the deceased and comforts the bereaved.  Traditionally held in people’s homes, holding a Zoom event allows people to participate from near and far.  This gathering is meant for reps, manufacturers and former Bograd’s employees.  Let’s share stories, tributes, etc. on Thursday, February 25th from 7:30 to 9:30 PM.

You will find a link to the event below.  Joe’s sister, Harriet, is helping facilitate this and asks that people register in advance.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

We have also set up a memorial page on My Keeper for Joe where people can see photographs and share written memories.  I have posted my eulogy there.  If people have photos of Joe to share, they can forward them to me at

Thank you and I hope to see you there,
