Paul Eissenstat passed away peacefully on August 3, 2023 at the age of 99. Paul, a life-long resident of Rochester was born on January 8, 1924. He is predeceased by his wife of seventy years, Judy [Gordon] Eissenstat, and his sisters, Lillian Pies and Sylvia Vicker. He is survived by his brother, Bernie Eissenstat, his four sons, Michael of Frederick MD, Richard (Rochelle) of Jerusalem, Israel, David (Brenda) of State College, PA, and Howard (Yasemin) of Canton, NY, along with his ten grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.

Paul lived a rich life.  He left high school early to join the Army and served in the Army Air Corps during WWII before returning to Rochester and starting a family.  While working full time and raising a family, he completed a bachelor’s degree at the University of Rochester. He continued to read and study history and Jewish Studies for the rest of his life.

Paul was dedicated to supporting the community and was an active member of Temple Beth David and the Jewish Community Center.  He spent many decades volunteering his time, including working with patients at the State Psychiatric Hospital and at the Jewish Home, and helping students with reading in Rochester public elementary schools.

In his free time, Paul read, exercised, and took nature walks.  At the very center of his life, however, was caring for his family: he was a devoted son and a caring father and husband; the needs of his family were always his foremost concern.
