It is with great sadness that Matzav.com reports the passing of Reb Boruch Yaakov Bloch z”l of Boro Park. He was 64 years old.
Reb Boruch Yaakov was a son of Reb Chaim Chaim Pinchos Bloch. In his youth, he studied at Talmud Torah and Yeshivas Vizhnitz in Bnei Brak. He later moved with his parents to the United States, where he became close to the Spinka Rebbe.
Reb Boruch Yaakov was an outstanding baal chesed and machnis orach, and opened his doors to one and all, accommodating any nitzrach and anyone who needed a meal or a warm home.
The levayah will be held at 11 p.m. at the Spinka Bais Medrash Chakal Yitzchok on 56th Street in Boro Park.
Yehi zichro boruch.
