Rabbi Morton Howard Pomerantz
Rabbi Morton Pomerantz was my colleague and friend at Long Island Developmental Center in Melville for many years. He was an advocate for right and good, and spoke for the special people who lived there as well as the staff that served them. His intelligence, wit and sense of humor carried many a day. He enjoyed a meal at my home. We all enjoyed his company. I was sorry to learn of his death when a note I mailed was returned to me. He will be missed.
Rabbi Pomerantz was a longtime Friend. Over these many years,he never declined an invitation to speak before a group or at a Dinner. His words were always inspirational and informative. He was a True Man of God, a Guide,a Mentor, Veteran and an American Patriot. We will miss Him and will not see his like again.
Condolences. Morton was a part of my life
for a short time. I will miss him.

Rabbi Pomerantz' Jewish, Italian, Greek and military roots uniquely represented our community. When NYC Tribune shut down, he ran the Guardian by fax from his apartment until it became Chris Ruddy's Newsmax. He was a friend of Fr Volaitis from oralityinmedia.org. He proved his support for the right to life by ministering to children in the state mental health institutions no matter what indignities they spewed on him. He always went the extra mile, going wherever his prayers were needed, even for my dying dad. He exemplified
humility, embracing and uniting us with fatherly love which will be sorely issed.
It was a pleasure to know you and, always, a delight and an education to listen to you when you spoke. Thank you for your military and religious service to our country. You made us proud. Karel Birnbaum Di Pietro and Michael A. Di Pietro, retired Marine
