shlomo-zakheimIt is with great sadness that we report the passing of noted baal chessed R’ Shlomo Eliezer (Steve) Zakheim z”l of Flatbush, Brooklyn. He was 60 years old.

R’ Shlomo was well known as a remarkably charitable and giving individual, who helped thousands of people financially and volunteered with ambulance organizations and camps for children with cancer and other special medical needs. He was a particularly beloved supporter of Chai Lifeline and Camp Simcha. He was a member of Flatbush Hatzolah for three decades, but much of chessed was performed out of the public eye and without recognition.

Shlomo founded Metropolitan Ambulance in the 1980s and later merged it with Transcare. He utilized whatever success in business he experienced for the benefit of others.

Thousands of tefillos were said over the last year for Shlomo Eliezer ben Chaya Sarah Elka as R” Shlomo battled a rare form of the dreaded disease that ultimately claimed his life on Rosh Hashanah.

R’ Shlomo’s father was Rav Yaakov Zakheim zt”l, rov of Bais Hamedrash Hagadol of East Flatbush, who passed away several years ago.

He is survived by his mother, Rebbetzin Sarah Zakheim; his wife, Mrs. Faige Zakheim; his siblings, R’ Moshe Zalheim, Mrs. Rachelle Klein, and Mrs. Devorah Hamada; and his children and grandchildren following in his footsteps.

The levaya will take place tomorrow, Tzom Gedaliah, at 1 p.m., at Shomrei Hadas Chapels, located at 3803 14th Avenue in Boro Park, Brooklyn.

Yehi zichro boruch.
