Print Friendly, PDF & Email

YWN regrets to inform you of the Petira of Reb Boruch Bendet Fischman Z”L, who was struck and killed by a vehicle on the first night of Rosh Hashanaha. Police say a car struck him as he walked along Haverhill Road in West Palm Beach, Florida, at around 8:45PM.

The crash report did not indicate that its driver is facing any charges.

The Niftar was from Boro Park and then Lakewood, and had a condo in West Palm Beach where he was for Yom Tov.

The Niftar was a legendary Baal Chesed. He was one of the very first Misaskim volunteers after the organization was founded, and ran a major Bikur Cholim room in Florida.

Additional information will be published when it becomes available to us.

Boruch Dayan HaEmmes…

  1. My guess is that he didnt wear a reflector—so many of these deaths are avoidable–to not train kids, in Lakewood especially where there are tons of dark areas, to wear reflectors at night, is horribly negligent.
