Rabbi Yudi Dukes z”l, the longtime director of JNet, who inspired many mitzvah campaigns in his merit, passed away today. He was 39 years old.
Yudi was hospitalized for 241 days, one of the longest corona related hospitalizations in the world. Throughout it all, thousands around the world davened, learned, and did mitzvos in his merit.
On November 26, 2020, Yudi was finally released home only to return to the hospital the next day due to liver failure.
Yudi was the longtime director of the Jewish Learning Network, or JNet, a worldwide program that pairs people to study Judaism together.
He is survived by his wife Sarah, and their six children.
Yehi zichro boruch.
