Clara Schoenfeld passed away on Sunday, January 3, 2010, surrounded by loved ones in her daughter\'s home in Jerusalem, Israel. Clara (known affectionately as "Nana") lived life to the fullest for over 97 years. Born in 1912 in Hanover, Germany, to Heinrich and Eva Unger. Clara met her beloved husband, Herbert Schoenfeld, in Germany and escaped Nazi terror arriving and settling in Syracuse, New York. Clara will always be remembered by those who had the privilege to know her. Her optimism - her uncanny persistence - her enduring choice to make the most of life each and every day - made her presence powerful and dynamic. Survived by her sister, Gisela in Jerusalem; two daughters, Floris Leipzig and Elaine Slomovich; her sons-in-law, Murray and Chaim; her 12 grandchildren, Hava, Adam, Gordon, Tamar, Chris, Moran, Bart, Tovit, Avi, Shimyn, Rachel and Emanuel, and her 17 great-grandchildren, Ari, Elizabeth, Caleb, Solomon, Ava, Jonah, Sarah, Aidan, Gavriel, Tikvah, Shoshana, Shlomo, Batya, Sheindle, Koren, Liam, and Hod. We miss her already. Services will be conducted 2 p.m. on Thursday, January 7, 2010 at the Birnbaum Funeral Chapel, 1909 E. Fayette Street. Friends may visit with the family from 1 to 2 p.m. on Thursday at the chapel. Burial will be in Adath Yeshurun Cemetery. Shiva and gathering will take place after the service at the home of Dale and Joe Roth, 108 Vanida Rd., Fayetteville, and in Jerusalem, Israel.
