With great sadness and pain we inform you of the passing of Mrs. Aidel Caplan OBM, a long time resident of Montreal, Canada who was known for distributing food to the needy. She was 93 years old.

She was well known in Montreal for working alongside her husband Reb Berel Caplan OBM, helping him bring food to the needy in Montreal.

She is survived by her son and daughter along with many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

    So sad to hear this.
    Mrs, caplan and her husband reb be released, we’re lamed vovniks. They worried for the needy decades before it was popular to do so.reb berl would worry about people in need and shlep before dawn to the market and bring boxes of food to their door. And Mrs. Caplan stood beside and behind him, to help him do it. After reb be released passed away it took a whole committee to divide and do his work.
    Real lamed vovniks
    May Mrs. Caplan and her husband be meilitzei yoisher for all of klal yisroel and may their children be forever proud to have had such parents.
