A number of months ago he began complaining about severe abdominal pain. A malignant growth was found and he began receiving treatment. He was scheduled for release from the hospital for Shabbos but Thursday morning his condition became critical and he was niftar at 06:30.

The levaya began from the family home in Ashdod at 13:30 via the Belz Beis David Shaul Beis Medrash and then to the city’s cemetery for kvura.

תהא נשמתו צרורה בצרור החיים ויהא למליץ יושר בפני הקדוש ברוך הוא, שיאמר לצרותינו די.
