Congregational Guestbook for Saul Schneider

Dear Patty, what a sad time to reconnect. I am so sorry that your parents are no longer with you, and wonder, if passing within such a short time of each other would have been their wish. You and your family have a special place in my heart as kind people who always cherished Judaism. Yes, I remember your dad, Saul as my Touro teacher. I would love to talk if you feel like touching in to “the early years.” Sending love, Wendy

Although he excelled at his “day job,” his beautiful voice brought joy for decades to all who heard him sing. I had the pleasure of accompanying Saul at a few of his “cabarets” for various groups. He delivered jokes like a stand-up comedian, and brought laughter to an otherwise mundane day. I’m sure he’s organizing a barbershop group wherever he is now …

Two wonderful and loving friends have left us within weeks apart. How sad for the family to loose both parents, however they will be together once again. Our deepest condolence.

So sad to hear about Saul’s passing. He will be with his beloved Jenny now. I will always love and remember as a little girl counting 1,2,3 and being swung around. Love yo all the family!

My deepest condolences. I used to see Saul at temple when I was younger and loved to talk to him. He always had time for me. I told him I had letters from my family from Russia in 1917 thru 1924. He said he would love to translate them for me. Unfortunately, it never worked out (my fault). He told me to save them and now I have had them translated because of him. Thanks Saul. D 

David Rubenstein

What a beautiful man. I can picture him telling me stories and always being so kind. What a mensch. You will be missed. My condolences to David. 

Mark Rubenstein

I was saddened to hear about Jennie’s death a few weeks ago and now Saul. When we first became members and “regulars” at Touro in the mid 80’s, both Jennie and Saul were so welcoming. Jennie was still involved in religious school when our oldest child started. While we don’t know the rest of the family, we want to express our gratitude for having known this remarkable couple. Even back then, they had lived productive lives in both the Jewish and secular communities. We hope you have great memories of good times spent together to help you through this passage in your lives.

Joanie and Greg Cox

I am so sorry for your loss. I have such fond memories of your mom and dad. They were both so kind and quick with a smile. May their memory be a blessing.

Lisa Santopadre

Susan and I extend our heartfelt condolences on Saul’s passing and hope you are comforted by a lifetime of memories. May Saul’s Memory Be for a Blessing.

I have a thousand happy memories of Saul and Jennie. So many shared joys at Touro Synagogue together, meals at their house, meals shared with my parents, when they visited New Orleans. I can hear the sound of Saul’s beautiful singing, as I sit here typing, and remembering his great sense of humor and wonderful smile. It was an honor and a pleasure to be their friend. May their memories always be for a blessing.

Julie Grant Meyer

Patty. I am sorry for the loss of both of your parents in such a short period as you deal with all the other issues of the day. Your dad taught me in Religious School and your mom was of course the principal. At the time I doubt they realized how important Judaism and Touro would become for me and I hope that they realized in recent years that they made a significant difference to not just me but to my children and grand children. All the best to you and David, Be safe. Lou

Our condolences to the family of two wonderful people, Jennie and Saul Schneider, who welcomed us to New Orleans 41 years ago.
