With sadness we inform you of the passing of Rabbi Leibel Simpson, OBM, of Borough Park, founder of the famed Simpson Jewelers store and tremendous Baal Chesed. He was 83 years old.
Reb Leibel was the son of Reb Elye Simpson, OBM, a close Chosid and Gabbai of the Frierdiker Rebbe and later the Rebbe.
His acts of Chesed reached all corners of the community.
He is survived by his wife, Mrs. Chana Simpson, and their only son, Rabbi Yossi Simpson of Crown Heights, as well as many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
He is survived as well by his siblings: Rabbi Sholom Mendel Simpson (Crown Heights), Mrs. Krainie Rosenfeld (Borough Park), and Mrs. Esther Goldman (Crown Heights).
The Levaya will be held today, Monday, 2:00pm at Shomrei Hadas and passing by 770 at around 2:45pm, after which it will pass by Bnos Menachem on East New York Ave.
