    ברוך דין האמת.
    Our hearts are heavy at this news. Alan had such a sweet way about him. We always enjoyed anytime we spent with him. As Bruce reminded me, Alan and Selma were among the first members of the extended family he met and both have a special place in our hearts.
    We send our love and support.
    Edith and Bruce

    Dear Selma, Gary, Aliza and family,
    Words can not express my sorrow for your loss. I was fortunate to know Alan a bit and know what a wonderful, smart, kind , humble, funny man he was and an amazing father to you Aliza and much much more. Being around him and your family was a blessing that brought me joy. His smile and jokes were always great! I cherish those times. I am thinking of you all through this most difficult times and sending you hugs love and deep sympathies.Baruch Dayan Emet! Love Karen and Asaf

    I am so sorry for your loss. Uncle Alan made a lasting impression on me as a young man when we moved back to the East Coast and stayed with him and Aunt Selma.
    He always had a kind word thru the years on my birthday.

    I am so sorry to hear about Uncle Alan. Even though he wasn’t really my uncle, it felt like he was. I will never forget him running around helping at my wedding. He was truly an amazing person who was always there for everyone, and I am thankful for all the love and support he and Selma have given our family over the years.

    Though it’s been many years since my time with Alan memories of him are indelible and all positive. Though his passing was not unexpected that doesn’t lessen it’s impact and sadness. Genuineness, intelligence, warmth and devotion were among his many qualities.
    My sincere condolences.

  19. Kathi ODonohue says:

    Uncle Alan holds a place in my heart I do not have the words for, easily. He and Selma. in my mind, were my understudy parents (theatre reference). I am so sorry for this loss to his whole family. I am sorry for my loss. I watched the funeral, just now, and wish I could have lived closer and had more contact with the man Eden spoke about. I felt his support and love, too. Bob’s memories of an older brother helped make me feel closer to him and Alan.
    Rabbi, I give you a standing ovation, from my desk, and loved all the words you spoke and the man you spoke about is held nearer to my heart.
    Selma, I still don’t have the words to tell you how much I loved my uncle and am so sorry I wasn’t able to see him during a happier time.
    I love you so much, too, and look forward to seeing you later this summer, I hope.
    Kathi xoxo

    Selma and Ira,Gary and Aliza and Hannah,Ava,Eden,Liron,Lev and Abby has left them with a lasting legacy that will be with them forever. And Alan was also instrumental in every aspect of his synagogue until the very end. His loving family will treasure him forever. May his memory be for a blessing. Love,Joan and David

  22. Joel Rothman says:

    I got to know Alan Aaronson when he and I served together on the Executive Committee and Board of Trustees of Israel Center of Conservative Judaism (ICCJ). Alan was a very fine man. He will be missed. My wife, Livia Rothman and I would like offer our deepest condolences to Selma and the Aaronson family, the Ornstein family and to his extended family. May Alan’s soul Rest In Everlasting Peace. Joel and Livia Rothman, ICCJ.

  23. Jeff Golland says:

    The Stuyvesant High School Class of 1957 grieves the loss of Alan. Though we meet infrequently and lately on Zoom, Alan was a major link in our strong band. His goodness is plain to see in any picture. In 1954 he was my homeroom classmate; it was always a pleasure to see him.

  24. Carol Frost Gans says:

    Thinking of you and wishing you moments of peace and comfort. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you…always
    Love Carol Gans

  25. Mark Gendzier says:
