The Crown Heights community is invited to a joyous celebration as the Lakein, Brackman, and Bension families complete a sefer Torah in loving memory of their dear parents, Rabbi Shlomo and Miriam Lakein, OBM.
Rabbi Lakein published the Jewish Art Calendar for three decades, revolutionizing the Jewish printing industry. Passionate about education, he founded Yeshiva Darchai Menachem, a school founded on the principle of “chanoch l’naar al pi darko.” Together with his wife, he welcomed hundreds of people to their home and was always involved in community needs.
Rabbi Lakein passed away last Shvat at the age of 67.
Approaching her 22nd yahrtzeit, Miriam Lakein is remembered for her warmth, generous spirit, and her deep connection to the Rebbe. She was passionate about her adopted community, Crown Heights, the Rebbe’s inyanim, and her 10 children.
The Siyum Sefer Torah will begin at 546 Montgomery St. at 4:00pm on Thursday, 1 Tamuz, June 18, 2015. At 5:30, the music turns on and the march to Yeshiva Darchai Menachem begins. Hakafos and a seuda will follow at the yeshiva.
