With great sadness, we regret to inform you of the passing of Noach Dear, OB”M, Judge in Brooklyn Supreme Court. He passed away on Sunday, 25 Nisan. He was 67-years-old
Dear served as a member of the New York City Council from 1983-2001 and advocated for the issues of the mostly frum community he represented, including Midwood and much of Boro Park and Bensonhurst. He advanced many laws that assisted the frum communities in Brooklyn.
In 2015, Dear was elected as the Brooklyn Supreme Court after serving as a judge for 20 years in the civil court system.
Dear’s name was splashed on newspaper headlines in 2017 when he was subject to an anti-Semitic incident on the streets of Brooklyn, a man began screaming anti-Semitic expletives at him as he was walking near Maimonides Hospital early in the morning. Dear ignored the man, entered his car and called the police.
