Tragic Accident Claims the Life of Flatbush Yeshiva Student

WOODRIDGE, NY [CHI] — A tragic one-vehicle accident upstate New York left one Bochur dead, and a seriously injured passenger after the driver apparently fell asleep at the wheel. The incident took place on Route 58, Glen Wild Road near Woodridge in Sullivan County, right across from the Skvere Camp Beis Yitzchok.

Yeshiva World News reported that the Niftar is 19-year-old Yeshaya Dovid Eckstein OBM who lived on 8th Street in the Kensington section of Brooklyn.

Op-Ed: What we can all Learn from the Shuk Story

by Lazer Avtzon

Who would have believed the selling of the SHUK would make such headlines?

Businesses come and go, and some predicted the demise of the SHUK the minute Kol Tuv opened Empire Kosher? After all, can our community actually support two large kosher supermarkets? (I believe it can, but that depends on you, read on…)

As a close personal friend of Shloimie for over 20 years, I have been following this issue long before it became a “sensation” and certainly before the beautiful stories posted by various individuals,

We find ourselves in the three weeks, and as such, comments posted with regards to why people ask for credit, who gives them the right, who is a bigger ball tzedokah, etc, all have no place, nor virtue in this discussion.

Monsey Community Marks Rabbi Dovid Wichnin’s 14th Yarzeit

This past Shabbos Parshas Matos-Masei marked the 14th Yarzeit of Rabbi Dovid Wichnin A”H. Rabbi Wichnin was the founding Rov of K’hal Tzemach Tzedek Lubavitch of Monsey and the Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshiva Tiferes Bachurim in Morristown, New Jersey until his untimely passing in 1996.

Rabbi Wichnin, an exceptional Talmid Chochom, was a beloved leader and a father figure to many and earned the respect of many of the Rabbonim and Admorim in Monsey.
