Avraham Aroshas passed away on March 27 as a result of complications due to COVID-19.

He is remembered as a happy person, the epitome of honesty and love of his fellow. A fighter in Israel’s pre-statehood Palmach militia, he was a true lover of the Land of Israel.

“He believed in goodness and knew to look at the full-half of the glass,” recalls his daughter. “He was such a good person; it seemed as if he’d live forever.”
