Naomi and I connected on issues of conscientious objection & taxes. While many of our conversations were in passing such as at vigils, it was always meaningful. I appreciate the joy and clarity she shared and feel honored to have known to have her. I'll miss you, gentle spirit.

If each of us "puts our bodies where our mouths are" and does just one action towards making life fuller for our fellow human beings, that's more than nothing. Naomi took at least one action a day. I could not be involved in Morningside social actions when Naomi began working closely with Morningside, so I did not work with her on today's challenges - but I a savor my first meeting with Naomi: at the Quaker Meeting House in Flushing. She invited Morningsiders and walked us through the moments of history throughout the Meeting House, sharing with us the stories behind the gatherings there and the struggle to keep it with us.

Deeply saddened to hear of Naomi’s passing. Just found out! She was a brave and fearless voice who did not hesitate to support and protest on behalf of the voiceless and marginalized. Thank you Naomi!
May you Rest In Peace.

I am so sorry to hear of Naomi Paz Greenberg's passing. I will always remember her leadership at Flushing Friends Meeting when our 15th St. Meeting's Peace and Social Justice Committee traveled out to Flushing to join her. We all stood in a vigil at the US Army Induction office there. She was a firm anti-war activist. I will miss her.

I always enjoyed seeing and talking with Naomi at the war tax resister gatherings we were both at. Her spirit, passion, and dedication were evident. I'll miss her.

Oh! What a sad news although this is inevitable in everyone's life. We come alone and also go alone.However, kith and kin and friends particularly with whom we have interacted closely in life leave an indelible mark and memory. Dear Naomi has been one such great and genial individual. I regret I have not seen her for quite some time. My sympathies to the grieving family. May her soul rest in peace. She will be in my prayers.

Naomi has been a loyal friend for years. She and a friend have spent hundreds, yes hundreds, of hours working on my war tax resistance case through the courts. Her dedication to working for peace is still inspiring. As she often
quoted Arundhati Ray, "The trouble is that once you see it, you can't unsee it."
