Norman was a great man who gave much of his time so generously to help the community. He will be sorely missed.

That’s how I called him. He gave of his time to help anyone in need. He wouldn’t stop always being proactive never taking no for an answer. If he believed in something he went all out. U always wanted him in your side. He was a brilliant lawyer using his brilliant mind to help others
He will be missed by so many. So very sad for his children with both parents no longer alive.

His mother is alive עמו״ש

In Melbourne when anyone was in need or advice needed the saying went: what does Norman say what does he advise . .
What he said and advised was always said with care and understanding and was always right and worked. A dear soul. will be sorely missed. ת.נ.צ.ב.ה

Sad, what a righteous Jew

A champion of a person. We had many chats walking together slowly from Shul on Shabbos. Anytime someone had an issue, whatever it may have been communal or personal he gave his time and involvement in trying to help that person. He loved Yiddishkeit and would encourage younger students going into law or any skill to be proud of their Yiddishkeit and not use the study or work as an excuse to stop davening with a minyan or slacking in their daily Shiurim.
He had a sense of humour and sharp.

He was an asset to our community.

Met him during Federal case in 2003. He was an awesome person.

So sad to lose Norman!

He was one of the most caring and capable men I ever met and I feel a deep wound today on learning of his passing. He always had the best advice and at the same time a twinkle in his eye. He was one of the better humans to spend time with and I console myself with great memories of him. RIP Norman!

We met when we were kids at a school when we were 9 years old. He was always friendly and complained when Hawthorn Football Club wasn’t traveling well!!!!
That was a passion outside his simchas & law!!!
I didn’t see much of him as we got older as he was more of a Yiddishkeit than I am.
RIP a brave man who fought for rights.
