Career at Boeing

After his time in New York and prior to enlisting in the Air Force, Ike began work at Boeing as a Tool Room Clerk. During that time, Boeing was operating 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Boeing requested that Ike work weekends. However, as an Orthodox Jew, Ike could not work from sundown Friday until after sundown Saturday, which created some tension. Ike’s Uncle, Rabbi Solomon Maimon, spoke to Ike's Senior Supervisor, which helped. 

Returning to Boeing in 1954, Ike went back to the tool room, then rose through the ranks, becoming a Systems Analyst. Ike retired in 1995.
