Boruch Dayan Hoemes: R’ Shlomo Vishedsky, 66, OBM

With great sadness we inform you of the untimely passing of Rabbi Shlomo Vishedsky, OBM, of Kfar Chabad, Israel, merely two weeks after he was informed by doctors that he had an aggressive form of Yeneh Machlah, RL. He was 66 years old.

Reb Shlomo was a resident of Crown Heights, where he operated a shoe store, until 1987, when he moved to Eretz Yisroel with his family.

In Eretz Yisroel he was very involved in promoting and administering Kashrus in the food industry.

He was informed by doctors merely two weeks ago that he had an aggressive form of Yeneh Machlah, RL, and this morning he returned his soul to his maker.

He is survived by his wife, Risha, and children: Chana Sudakevich (Tokyo, Japan), Rabbi Yehoshua Vishedsky (Donetsk, Ukraine), Rabbi Mendel Vishedsky (Brussels, Belgium), Rabbi Pini Vishedsky (Israel), Rabbi Zalman Vishedsky (Kfar Chabad, Israel), Rabbi Shmuel Vishedsky (Kobe, Japan), Mrs. Chashi Ofan, and Hatomim Moshe Vishedsky, as well as many grandchildren.

He is as well survived by three siblings: Rabbi Bentzion Vishedsky (Kfar Chabad, Israel), Rabbi Michel Vishedsky (Kfar Chabad, Israel) and Mrs. Sarah Zaklas (Nachlas Har Chabad, Israel). He is predeceased by two siblings: Rabbi Sholom Ber Vishedsky, OBM, and Mrs. Dinah Gorodetzky, OBM.

The Levaya took place today from Kfar Chabad to Jerusalem, where he was buried on Har Hazeisim.
