Boruch Dayan Hoemes: Rabbi Shmuel Fogelman, 88, OBM

With sadness we inform you of the passing of Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu Fogelman OBM, a noted educator who merited to have the Frierdiker Rebbe serve as sandek at his bris. He was 88 years old.

He was among the a group of young students sent by The Rebbe to Kfar Chabad following the terror attack in the Beit Sefer L’mlacha vocational school in Kfar Chabad, which claimed the lives of five students.

Rabbi Fogelman was a noted educator who served as the principal of Lubavitcehr Yeshiva on Crown Street for many years.

He is survived by his wife, Shaindel, and children Rochel Ascher, Malky Freund, Faygie Shagalow and Chaim Fogelman, grandchildren and great-granchildren.

The Levaya will take place today, Thursday, 12:00pm at Shomrei Hadas and passing by 770 at  around 12:30 pm.

    I remember him In the summer of 1970; I was 11 years old. He was the director of activities at Camp Gan Israel, in Flint, Mi. I had subsequent, pleasant encounters with him when I lived In Crown Heights, many years later. What a great loss; He will be greatly missed.

    Rabbi Fogelman saw me and my 7 yr old son one day, He wanted to connect and took out a picture from his pocket to show my son how close he got to a Lion, He was so brave and connected to my son right away.

    He took a moment to chear us up, a stranger but, no- Kol Yisroel Areivim Ze L’Ze.

    Such a good heart will be missed.

    May Hashem Bring Moshiach Immediately to join us once again with our special loved ones!
