Toronto – YWN regrets to inform you of the Petira of Reb Moshe Yosef (Paul) Reichman Z”L at the age of 83. Reb Moshe was the leading Ba’al Tzedakah (philanthropist) in the last 100 years, and gave hundreds of millions of dollars to Tzedakah. There wasn’t a Mosod in the world that didn’t benefit from his Chessed. He was extremely close to many Gedolim, most notably Maran HaRav Shach ZATZAL. Reb Moshe paved the way to the current reality, that wealthy philanthropists donate money on a massive scale to support Mosdos Hatorah.
His success had little impact on his lifestyle, and he remained very private and unwilling to talk to the press about his major business dealings. In Toronto where he lived, he built a number of Yeshivos and Batei Midrashim.
He leaves behind a Mishpacha of Bnei & Bnos Torah, children and grandchildren, all following in his ways of Torah and Chessed.
The Levayah will take place in Toronto at Bais Yaakov Elementary School (15 Saranac Blvd.), Motzei Shabbos at 9:00 pm.
