you?” He would respond, even in his hospital bed when he could barely speak,
“Wonderful!” and really mean it. Those around him felt that
sincerity. Sandy deeply cared about Judaism, and was an active and
longtime congregant of The Jewish Center of Princeton. The family requests memorial
contributions be made to The Jewish Center.
