Baruch Dayan Emes. We join the community in sadness this evening upon the loss of Rabbi Moshe Gottesman of Oceanside. An unbelievable legend of Chinuch, Chesed and Bikur Cholim. One of our very first partners in the world of hospital support, he taught us all so much. The funeral is tentatively planned for 9 AM tomorrow morning at the Young Israel of Oceanside. #communitydedication #bigloss #chesed #respiterooms #hospitalsupport #community #unity #weareallachiezer @sj130rn @eliweiss16
