Levaya & Kevura For Rabbi Reuven Bauman Z”L


The Levaya for Rabbi Reuven Bayuman Z”L, was held Monday morning, at B’nai Israel Congregation, 420 Spotswood Avenue, Norfolk, Virginia. People may listen to the funeral on the phone at 712-770-4160, Access Code 271789#.

A flight by Hatzolah Air transported the Niftar to Teeterboro Airport and landed at 2:30PM. Rabbi Abe Friedman, NJ State Police Chaplain, worked along with the Achiezer Organization to have the NJ State Police as well as the Passaic County Sheriff Police escort the Niftar in a timely fashion to the cemetery for burial.

The levayah then proceeded to the airport for kevurah at about 3:30PM in King Solomon Cemetery in Clifton NJ, in the Chelka of K’hal Adath Jeshurun (KAJ). Please respect the long-standing Minhog Ashkenaz which is followed by KAJ, that women do not come to the Beis Olam.

Mrs. Bauman will sit shivah in Norfolk. Other family members will sit shivah in New York.

A Charidy campaign has been set up for the family.

  1. In ganeden biggest rewards are reserved for neshamas which saved a life of a Jew in this world. I am sure his is in the right place now.

  2. BDE.

    A teacher. Already moser nefesh to enlighten the souls & minds young Jews to Torah, Mitzvot and Maasim Tovim.

    Then, he gave up his life…literally to save a student.

    The gates of Gan Eden are wide open. May the Niftar be a meilitz yosher for Am Yisrael.

  3. How can beis yisroel not cry when reading and viewing this story? Why is this just another YWN article? Why have we become so hardened to tragedy? I am looking for an answer.

  4. So so so sad. Wishing his wife, children and the whole family Nechama and Koach.

  5. @TC – Not trying to be flippant, but how do we theologically reconcile your suggestion of crying out with “VaYiDom Aharon”?

  6. re JakeL

    Vayidom Aharon doesn’t mean Aharon didn’t cry. He cried yomam volyla.

    Vayidom means he was silent as to tayynahs against HKBH, silent in the form of bitachon, full trust – in his inner heart – in HKBH that Hashem knows what is best.

    Vayidom is an interesting word for Silent. Why does it use a loshon Vayidom? Dum can also mean Blood.

    We see in many places after someone was killed his “blood cried out” —- because a persons Nefesh is within his blood.

    This Vayidom doesn’t mean aharon was silent — he cried loud hard and long. His NEFESH was silent— his heart was pure and had full Trust in HKBH….. and Aharon’s reward exceedingly great as Rashi says.

    Let us all be zoycheh to study the Chovos Halevovos to reach the purest of pure hearts and Love Hashem on the highest of levels possible.

    Thank you for replying to JakeL
    I chose not to respond to what I thought was a bizzare question from someone with deep theological issues.
