Paul Schnek: Baruch Dayan Emet

AFSI is profoundly sad to report that our longtime member and dear friend, PAUL SCHNEK, has passed away. Paul was a great supporter of AFSI and Israel. He accompanied our Chizuk missions many times, and took it upon his shoulders to stand outside the Israeli Consulate in NYC, every day from 12-2 PM, to protest the Oslo Accords. He did this for many years, until his legs would no longer allow him to stand for such long periods. His passion and dedication to Israel and AFSI knew no bounds. Unfortunately, he had been quite sick these last few years. He will be sorely missed.

May Paul’s family be comforted among the mourners of Zion and may they know no more sorrows.
