The levaya for 27-year-old R’ Mordechai Gerber z”l was held on Sunday, the first day of Chol Hamoed Pesach in his home community of Elad at 13:00.
Thousands were on hand for the levaya of the young avreich who was trampled to death at the motzei Shabbos levaya of HaGaon HaRav Shmuel Halevy Wosner ZT”L. He was heading down stairs of Yeshivas Chachmei Lublin in Bnei Brak when he was trampled to death R”L.
The levaya of R’ Moti began at 15:00 from his home on HaMeir Street in Elad, proceeding to Beis Medrash Khal Chassidim where he davened. The kvura was in the Segulah Cemetery in Petach Tikvah.
Rabbi Chaim Meir Halevy Wosner Shlita, who was appointed to succeed his father, took part in the levaya.
R’ Moti is survived by his wife and their 3-year-old son. Moti became an orphan at a young age. He opted to study in Yeshivas Chachmei Lublin and was respected for his outstanding midos. Rav Wosner ZT”L was mesader keddushin at his chupah. He worked as a repairman in a Talmid Torah Khal Chassidim in Elad to earn a parnasa.
