Shalom Neuman's life was lived in the service of others.
The legacy he left his children is to look outside of one’s own needs, to step up, and to make a difference. Shalom was not defined by his financial success, he did everything he could for the benefit of others. Whether opening his home to multitudes of guests, helping found the community of Tosh, or starting an organization to help the poor of Eretz Yisroel, and more. Shalom’s life was defined by the people he worked tirelessly to help.
When he got sick and the doctors told him that he had only a few weeks to live, Shalom searched for treatment that could prolong his life. When he found the restorative and FDA approved Vitamin C infusions he realized this, and other similar treatments had to be made available to all Jewish patients, regardless of their ability to pay. With the help of Hashem, the Vitamin C infusions gave him nearly three additional years of life. Those were not years spent weak and in bed, rather years he was able to hold his grandchildren and dance at their weddings. His last wish was for an organization to be founded to help others who struggled as he did. In his memory, his family founded Aid L’Shalom. A fitting testament to a truly remarkable individual.
