In 1959 Azariah went to the US on shlihut for the Ihud HaBonim movement and, while there, he married Ora. After returning from the US, he earned a BA in Bible and Jewish History from Bar Ilan University and later taught these subjects at the agricultural school Eshel HaNasi. He fought in the Six Day War and was decorated for his service. In the Yom Kippur War Azariah fought in the tank corps in Sinai. On October 10, 1973, during a fierce battle near Ismaylia his tank suffered a direct hit, and he was killed immediately. For several months he was listed as Missing in Action and later was recognized as a soldier whose final resting place was unknown. Eventually his remains were identified, and his final resting place is at Kibbutz Urim. He was survived by his wife, a son, two daughters, his parents and a brother.
