Sol Nudelman, 91, of Lawrenceville died Jan. 25, 2018. A Holocaust survivor born in Poland, he lived for some years in a concentration camp before its liberation in 1945. He lost his parents and siblings in the Holocaust. He then lived in New York City until 1952, meeting his wife, Ida, in Montreal. They moved back to Queens in 1966 before settling in Lawrenceville.
Mr. Nudelman worked many years in the Garment Center of New York. He then went on to purchase a New York City taxicab and drove it until retiring in his mid-60s after being mugged at knifepoint.
He celebrated his bar mitzvah in June 2014 at age 88 at Congregation B’nai Tikvah, North Brunswick. He received a letter from then-President Barack Obama in recognition; former Congressman Rush Holt also gave a speech at the synagogue.
Predeceased by his wife of 56 years in 2010, he is survived by two sons, Irwin (Maxine) and Gary (Jane), and three grandchildren.
Services were held at Congregation B’nai Tikvah, North Brunswick, on Jan. 29 with arrangements by Crabiel Parkwest Funeral Chapel, New Brunswick. Memorial contributions may be made to B’nai Tikvah or Jewish Family and Children’s Service of Greater Mercer County.
