With sadness we inform you of the passing of R’ Yosef Elyovitch, OBM, a longtime member of the Lubavitch community in Antwerp, Belgium, and one of the founders of the Chabad House in the city.
Reb Yosef was a devout Chosid of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, OBM, and took great pride in preparing and sending beeswax candles for the Rebbe to use on Chanukah, for which the Rebbe thanked him personally.
He is survived by his wife, Rivkah Peninah, and children: Yehudis Basia Edelman (Paris, France), Baila Kohn (Jerusalem, Israel), Rochel Clara Rappaport (London, UK) and Chaim Eliezer Elyovitch (Antwerp, Belgium).
The Levaya and burial will take place today, the 10th of Av (Fast of Tisha B’av), in Jerusalem.
