Rabbi Yonah Avtzon OBM labored tirelessly over 40 years to publish the Rebbe’s sichos and classic works of the Rebbeim. Working day in and day out, from 5738 onward, Rabbi Avtzon made the Rebbe’s teachings accessible to readers in every corner of the world.
With the publication of the Alter Rebbe’s Shulchan Aruch in English, Lessons in Sefer HaMaamarim, Hayom Yom, the series of the Rebbe Rayatz’s Sefer HaSichos, and so much more, Rabbi Avtzon took Lubavitch publishing to new frontiers of excellence.
A little less than two years ago, Rabbi Avtzon suffered severe medical complications, which he did not share with the public. He did not curtail his publishing efforts and new books continued to come out, but his fundraising work was impaired.
Yonah did more than publish books. He sacrificed himself personally, giving of his time, energy, and soul to help others through the shidduchim he arranged, the hours he spent counselling people who asked his advice, and the countless favors he was only too happy to do.
In these tough times, we need to be there for Yonah, his family, and to the holy work of disseminating the teachings of our Rebbeim.
A fundraising campaign has been started to help continue his important work.
