CORONA VICTIM: R’ Yosef Tzvi Klein Z”L Of Boro Park


YWN regrets to inform you of the Petira of R’ Yosef Tzvi Klein Z”L of Boro Park. He was 50.

The Niftar was one of the pillars of the Bobov-45 community, and served as a Meshamesh to the Bobover Rebbe ZATZAL (Reb Shloma) many years ago.

A well-known accountant in Boro Park, the Niftar leaves behind a wife and children.

  1. Baruch Dayan haEmes. I’ve known Yossi for almost 25 years, from the time we worked together at a large national accounting firm, and he was an exceptionally fine individual as well as a good friend. He was a walking Kidush Hashem there – he was pleasant to everyone, as well as being extremely knowledgeable and thoughtful, demonstrating to the almost entirely non-Jewish staff, most of whom had never had any interaction with a Chasid, what a true Ben Torah is. He was Na’im im haBriyos, and well-liked by everyone – and provided me an opportunity to have a quick discussion in learning or Halacha during the course of the work day.

    May he be a Meilitz Yosher, and may his family find a Nechama.

  2. He wasn’t JUST any accountant. He had unbelievable knowledge at his fingertips. He A”H had an answer to any tax question you had. He was a huge Talmid Chacham. He had Tures Hoirua from Rav Hirschprung A”H of Montreal, Reb. Fischel Hershovits A”H and Lindzer Rav A”H! He will be sorely missed by all who knew him.
