From Kia Nobre

Wow. This news really shook me up.
Shlomo has always been there, from my early PhD days. He's remained an inspiring presence ever since - as scientist and friend. I greatly admired his  commitment to scholarship and his enjoyment of a good argument. I hope I caught some of his feistiness of spirit ! 


  1. As shocking as it can be the news that such a lively, enthusiastic and charming man may die
    We met him in Jerusalem in 1998 for the INS and loved him from the first moment
    We will fondly remember Shlomo and miss him a lot
