It is with much shock and great sadness that we inform you of the passing of Reb Avrohom Yeshaya Schtroks, of Morristown, NJ, at the age of 55. Update: The levaya will take place tomorrow, Monday, at 9:30 AM at Shomrei Hadas Chapels in Boro Park, and will pass by 770 at approximately 10:30 AM.
He is survived by his children – who are still reeling from the loss of their mother at a young age – Tziporah, Yosef Yitzchok, Menachem Mendel, Sholom Ber, Shneur Zalman, Shmuel and Levi.
Reb Yeshaya was a beloved melamed in the Morristown cheder for almost 30 years. He began teaching in 1984 under the personal direction of the Rebbe, and never left his post. He was much adored by his many students, who were greatly affected by his Chassidish demeanor and kindly smile.
With great care, love and devotion, he single-handedly raised his heartbroken children after the tragic passing of their mother, until he was happily remarried four years ago.
He passed away during his sleep.
The levaya will take place tomorrow, Monday. Further information will be announced as it becomes available.
