After battling a lengthy illness, Zisa Benzion (Sol) Lieberman, passed away on Chai Kislev. He was born in Bilkah, Czechoslovakia on the first day of Shavuos in 1930. On May 9, 1940, against doctors orders but with the help of his trusting parents he and his sister escaped the Holocaust on the Rex – the last ship to America.
A Korean war US veteran, Sol Lieberman was determined to replenish his family exterminated in the Holocaust. He married his beloved wife Paulette and raised a family of six sons and one daughter ky’h. At the time of his passing he had celebrated the births of many grandchildren.
Throughout his life, Mr. Lieberman The Lawyer championed the continuity of Yiddishkeit in America. He was perhaps the first lawyer in America to go to court with a beard and peyus – and he wore them proudly. He was a pillar of ‘mini’ minyanim, often standing outside to find someone to complete the Minyan. He is loved by Jews of all backgrounds.
Mr. Lieberman had an unending love and devotion for his family. He once said “there’s always a fight between more money and more children. But I go with more children. Because you can love money, but it won’t love you back.”
He is survived by his dedicated and loving wife Peshe Razel (Paulette) and his children: Aryeh Leib, Yitzchok Isaac, Tzirel Dobah Raskin, Yisroel Dov, Lipa Yakov Zvi, Menachem Mendel, and Shmuel Schneur Zalman and many grandchildren.
