Boruch Dayan Hoemes: R’ Messod Bensoussan, 70, OBM

With sadness we inform you of the passing of R’ Messod Bensoussan, OBM, a beloved father of 13, grandfather, and Shliach of the Rebbe in Choisy-le-Roi, Paris, France. He was 70 years old.

Reb Messod, known to his friends as Serge, was one of the first Mekuravim of the head Shliach to France, Rabbi Muleh Azimov, OBM.

Together with his wife, they founded a kindergarten for Jewish children in Paris, and saw thousands of Jewish children come through their doors to receive the beginnings of their Jewish education.

He is survived by his wife, and their 13 children: Chlomi, Rivkah Cohen, Yossi, Hanna Sebag, Mendy, Ne’hama Ouaki, Dvorah Sellam, Levi, Chalom, Israel, Eliahou, Haya Bokobza and Beila Assouline; as well as many grandchildren.

The Levaya took place today in Paris, after which the Niftar will be transported to Jerusalem for burial on Har Hazeisim.
