Jewish War Veterans of the United States of America

Passing of PNC Bob Zweiman

The Jewish War Veterans of the United States of America (JWV) expresses its deepest sympathies at the loss of our Coordinating Committee Chairman, Past National Commander Robert Zweiman, who passed away late in the evening on March 17th at the age of eighty-eight.

PNC Zweiman became a member of JWV in 1947 after serving in the United States Army in the Philippines. After discharge from the service, he completed his education at New York University and attained his BS degree in Accounting and his Juris Doctor degree in law. As a lawyer, he was admitted as a sole practitioner in Federal courts and the courts of New Jersey and New York, and retired after 39 years of practice.

Bob served the Jewish War Veterans and the National Museum of American Jewish Military History at every level of the organization. He served as a Post, County, Department, and National Judge Advocate, and as chairman on several National committees including the Standing Committee and the Coordinating Committee.

In these unhappy circumstances, the Coordinating Committee met and appointed Past National Commander Norman Rosenshein as the new Chairman. PNC Rosenshein has been a member of JWV for over 45 years, and has served as the National Budget Chairman and the Department Commander of New Jersey. He is looking forward to carrying on PNC Zweiman’s legacy and JWV’s mission into the future.
