8. Better to listen to him directly about this issue
9. To me it's like an end of an era.
10. Great Guy and proud Jew (link to a picture of his headstone)
Years ago I met him and Jerusalem mayor Teddy Kolleck at Grand Central terminal. After Mayor Koch was no longer Mayor once I had an opportunity to have lunch with him at Docs restaurant on 3rd avenue and 41 street. He was a great story teller and nice to listen to.

I met Ed Koch when he was serving his second term, he was the most charismatic politician I have ever met.

A great man. A good man. He will be sorely missed. It was personally upsetting to hear about this loss.

17. Ed Koch taught me ..
Always describe yourself as a "Jew", not as "Jewish". This was one of his messages of pride in his heritage. RIP.

18. they dont make Jews like him anymore
he was an unapologetic supporter of Israel
nowadays most Jews need a little intimidation before they are on the anti-Israel campaign
but they will wake up one day
19. a man who proved he was everything of a man
A strong man who acted on his beliefs which, as a man, were not perfect. It was wonderful to see him stand for Jews, Yehudim living in the land of their own name at least in what would be his final months. Sadly I will never forget him condemning Jews for living in the land of their own name on his radio show with regard to BB's use of his self proclaimed Iron Fist on the destruction of Jewish lives in Beit HaShalom in the land of the first Jew that BB ceded to those that come to kill them. Thick necked doesn't begin to describe him (note his burial ground). He loved his people and perhaps maybe even more fully just before his end. Blessed is the final judge of truth. I am sure the Sh'ema was firmly in his mind on his passing as it is on his headstone. Adonai Echad

20. Trinity Christian Cemetery?
Why is he being buried in a Christian cemetery with a Jewish inscription and a Jewish star? Shouldn't he be buried near his Jewish family?
