RIP Amos Shuchman: “Loved everything about NYC, except the New York Times”
Obituary for Amos Shuchman, whose family paid for it to be run in The New York Times (emphasis mine, h/t CAMERA):
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.
Rest in peace, Amos, you had the last laugh.

I’m sure Amos is having a chuckle about that Obit in Beth-El right now 🙂
Sounds like a life well-lived. With discernment!
Haha! Beautiful! RIP.
Why look at that…his memory already is a blessing!!
Mr. Schuchman didn’t fight IN haganah, but FOR or WITH haganah. Either way, he is a hero and is welcomed into the loving arms of G-d.
Towson, Being that the Heganah was the paramilitary defense organization before the IDF, it makes perfect sense if he was a member in the organization, and therefore “in the Heganah”. “For or With” are also perfectly acceptable though, and your conclusion is just, given the amount of outporing this man is receiving for his well lived life.
Bah, Haganah*. My mind was blurry, and my typo was being “e-substituted” 😉
