The frum kehilla in Argentina is engulfed in mourning following the death of Reb Moshe Dayan, z’l, a chazan and maggid shiur, from the coronavirus at age 32, B’Chadrei Chareidim reported.
Reb Dayan, who was born in Brazil, served as a chazan and maggid shiur in the frum kehillos in Argentina, Brazil and Panama, where the coronavirus is still raging. He caught the virus and became seriously ill and was hospitalized for a lengthy period of time but unfortunately lost the battle for his life on Thursday.
He left behind a wife and four children, the youngest of whom is only eight months old.
Askanim in Argentina worked tirelessly to obtain visas for the niftar’s relatives in Brazil so they could participate in the levaya since there are still many restrictions due to the pandemic. His parents traveled to Argentina for the levaya on Friday in a private plane leased by the Jewish community in São Paulo.
