YWN regrets to inform you of the sudden Petira of R’ Shmuel Aharon “Alan” Lipman Z”L. He was 72.

Alan was a Talmid of Yeshiva Chaim Berlin as a Bochur, and spent the past 30 years learning each day in Mirrer Yeshiva in Flatbush.

He was extremely close to the late Mirrer Rosh Yeshiva, Hagaon Harav Shmuel Berenbaum ZATZAL, attending his various Shiurim each week for many years.

Alan was not feeling well the past few days, and suffered a cardiac arrest while seeing his doctor on Monday morning. Flatbush Hatzolah rushed him to the hospital where he was unfortunately Niftar.

He leaves behind no family whatsoever, other than his friends at the Mir and Chaim Berlin, many of whom he ate by each Shabbos and Yom Tov.

Please learn, Daven and give Tzedakah for his Neshama, Shmuel Aharon ben Meir Nata.

The Levaya will be held on Tuesday at 12:00PM at Sherman’s, located at 1283 Coney Island Avenue between Avenue I and Ave J.

Kvura 2:45 P.M. at Beth Moses Cemetery, Pinelawn, New York

  1. Today i was thinking of Alan, an acquaintance who often stood next to me in a shiur for over 10 years. Who knows if the zechut of this simple individual was a protection for Klal Yisrael in America. His death was followed by what we know call the COVID-19 pandemic, riots, civil unrest, closure of shuls, yeshivahs and a change of life in America which will probably never return back to normal.
