This post has evolved into a collection of photos, video, death notices, links and personal comments. You are invited to share your thoughts here.

A new link from the Commtouch website– Gideon Mantel’s tribute to Nahum. And from Beit Issie Shapiro, where Nahum served as Chairman¬† (International) of American Friends of Beit Issie Shapiro.

This is my original post:

I just heard the horrible news – Nahum and Nava Sharfman were killed in a plane crash in Greece. Nahum was an inspiration to me from the day I met him 25 years ago. First and foremost, he was a real mentch, in every sense of the word.

And in the spirit of Yom HaAtzmaut – I consider Nahum one of the founders of the country.

He brought world class standards to National Semiconductor’s Herzliya Design Center, standards which are in a large way responsible for Israel’s high tech leadership position.¬† His goal was nothing short of creating the “Best Design Center in the Universe”.

As founder of shopping.com he created Israel’s most successful consumer internet site and will remain an inspiration to all entrepreneurs who had the honor of knowing him.

May his spirit live on in the lives of thousands of people whose lives were touched by him.

Yehi Zichram Baruch
