With great sadness we inform you of the passing of Rabbi Binyomin Mentz OBM, a longtime resident of Crown Heights. He was 85 years old.
A known fixture in Crown Heights and 770 Rabbi Mentz was among the first American Chassidim who counted themselves among the Chassidim of the Frierdiker Rebbe. Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvanian – he studied in Rabbi Posners yeshiva, where he was known as great student.
He is survived by his wife Miriam, and their children Rabbi Chaim Mentz (Bel Air, CA), Rabbi Yossi Mentz (Los Angeles, CA) and Hendy Raymen (Baltimore, MD).
The Levaya will take place today, Tuesday, at 10:00am in Shomrei Hadas and passing by 770 at around 10:45am.
