    Joseph Nathan Blau, 74, passed away peacefully in his sleep after a courageous battle with cancer and affiliated ailments. He is survived by his beloved wife of 39 years, Anna Zaibel Blau and his son, Aaron Saul Blau. He is also survived by his sisters Hannah Blau and Rose Rowland, brother-in-law Seth Rowland, and two nephews, Samuel and Itzak Rowland.

    He had an extended family in Jonatan Mora who he helped raised since the age of 2. The Mora family is mourning his loss deeply, especially Laura Mora who considered him a second father.

    The family meant everything to Nathan, as he was known to family and friends. He had the biggest heart and was happiest when helping others and donating much of his time to charitable causes including his beloved synagogue. As an attorney, he provided pro bono legal services to help abused women and children who fled domestic violence, sexual assault or human trafficking.

    Funeral services will be held at Greenwood Cemetery on Wednesday, December 7, 2022 at 2:00 pm.

    Donations made be made to Congregation Shaarei Shamayim or charity of your choice.
