A Loss to our Community: Dr. Saul Agus

Baruch Dayan HaEmmes!

We, at the JCCSG regret to inform you of the Petira (passing) of Dr. Shaul Gershon (Saul G.Agus Z”L, at the age of 72 years old.

The pain is still raw, and the loss so profound. Dr. Agus has played an integral role as a world renowned Gastroenterologist at Mount Sinai Hospital, for over 45 years! He had his private practice on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan, and also practiced at ParCare Medical Center in Williamsburg.‎

Dr. Agus was a strong advocate for our noteworthy organization JCCSG being a sounding board of advice, guidance, and affection, he saved countless lives, even in very difficult times when other doctors gave up and weren't even ready to play around and to try different treatments, he would jump in and not give up!‎ A lot of doctors have fancy degrees but very few doctors like him, who did put their heart before their mind while giving patients the best medicine in the world, HOPE. He would never hesitate to respond to emergencies 24 hours a day, seven days a week, he was a true warm Yid!

Dr. Agus had a sterling personality and unbelievable self-sacrifice to patients around the world suffering from gastrointestinal diseases, he accepted someone else’s pain and suffering as his own, Dr. Agus was the personal doctor and close to many Chasidish Admorim and Gedoile Yisroel from all sections of Judaism.

The Levaya (Funeral services) will take place Tomorrow, Thursday‎, April 23, at ‎11:00am‎, at Congregation Ahavas Torah, 240 Broad Avenue, Engelwood, NJ, 07631.

He left behind his wife Marcelle Agus, and kids, Ranan, Yosef and Elizur Agus and Michal Fox.

Shiva will be observed through Wednesday morning, April 29 at the home of Idit and Yosef Agus, 390 Booth Avenue, Engelwood, NJ 07631. Tell: 201-608-5144

May the family be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.

He will always be remembered!
