Eulogy expressed at the funeral
Debbie, Omri, Yoel, Mrs Liebe Klug, Professor Aaron Klug, David.
We are at the end of a terrible week. We lost two pillars of the Department of Economics, Ehud and Adam.
I, personally, do not remember such an awful week since the tragic days of the Yom Kippur war.
Adam's death is untimely, with all respect. He was young, he leaves a young family who needs his presence, he leaves parents who expected to see him flourish, and he leaves us and an unfinished work that would have been superb.
Adam was a brilliant economist or rather a brilliant scholar.
He had an amount of knowledge, which was unmatched in its quantity, depth, width and variety.
He was walking encyclopedia. Every time when I needed a reference or an overview of the literature on a topic, I asked Adam and received a comprehensive lecture.
This was because Adam, on top of being a wonderful source of knowledge, was also a great human being who was always willing to share his knowledge and help people with all his heart.
Adam! Dear friend and colleague, we will badly miss you, your wisdom and kindness. Our only consolation is that you are relieved of your suffering.
May you rest in peace.
