It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Reb Yossi Fogel z”l of Monsey, NY. Reb Yossi was a noted baal chessed who devoted himself to numerous tzorchei tzibbur and opened his home in the
Forshay community for many worthy causes. His passing has left a void in the hearts of the countless people he helped and touched.
Reb Yossi was a member of the vaad of Lev L’Achim and just hosted his annual Lev L’Achim Forshay reception less than two months ago despite the fact that he barely had the strength to stand. His focus was on “more kinderlach receiving a Torah chinuch in Eretz Yisroel” and he indeed takes with him the zechus of thousands of Yiddishe neshamos brought back to Torah.
May he be a meilitz yosher for his extraordinary wife and children, and his siblings, so that they will have the strength to carry on the legacy of simchas hachaim and ahavas Yisroel that made Reb Yossi so special.
The levaya will be held at 1:30 p.m. at Khal Netzach Yisroel (Rabbi Rottenberg’s shul), located at 47 Forshay Road, at the corner of Orchard Hill Drive, in Monsey, NY. The aron will then proceed to John F. Kennedy Airport and kevurah will take place in Eretz Yisroel.
Yehi zichro boruch.
