I will always remember Dan for being a judge extraordinaire at our Co-Op's Bake-Off.
Despite the other four judges turning green after sampling the eleventh dessert, Dan championed on to complete judging all 19 entries.
But the most awesome thing was when Dan went up to the display table and cut himself a hearty piece of the winning cake!
He will be missed.

My husband and I are heartbroken, and send our sincere condolences to Dan’s family.
Dan was a passionate Jewish activist, and he loved Judaism, Israel and America. He was erudite, well-educated and well-read, and a brilliant, ferocious fighter for truth. I corresponded with or spoke with Dan almost every day during recent months. His stiletto-sharp analysis, insights and humor were extraordinary. He did not suffer fools gladly but also, at times, could be surprisingly and deeply sensitive and compassionate. I wish we had been able to spend time with him in person this year. We already miss him, and are so sad for his loved ones.
