With his family, George settled in Paramus, NJ, where he became active in the local Temple; The Jewish Community Center of Paramus. He devoted time and energy and became president. His intense absorption with Jewish affairs led him to a meaningful relationship with the JWV. First, as an accountant and then endeared himself to his local veteran buddies, all of whom respected him. Eventually he was made commander of his group. He continued to work with the JWV until his untimely death in 1995.
