Even though his family paid for the New York Times to run this obituary (‘cuz the New York HAMAS Times would never run this on its own), you gotta love the death notice for Amos Shuchman, Zichrono LiVrachah [Blessed Be His Memory, the Hebrew phrase we Jews use for fellow Jews instead of “Rest In Peace”]. Shuchman, an American and an Israeli, fought with the Haganah (the forerunner to the IDF) to help establish the State of Israel.
SHUCHMAN–Amos, of New York, on February 1, 2013. Beloved and caring husband of Alice Shuchman for 51 years, father of Daniel (Lori Lesser) and Nina (Brian Roth), grandfather of Jacob, Sarah, Aaron and Ariela. Born in Tel Aviv in 1928, fought bravely in the Haganah. Loved his family, his birth and adopted countries, finance, skiing, opera, ballet and biking in Central Park. Loved everything about NYC, except the New York Times. Services at Beth El Cemetery (Or Zarua section), Paramus, NJ, Sunday at 11am. Memorial contributions to a charity of your choice. His fearless heart still beats within all of us. Shalom, Saba. [DS: Saba is Hebrew for “grandfather”]
Excellent. The obit ran on February 2nd.
