Police Question Two Persons Under Warning Regarding Rav Wosner’s Levaya


resized_DSC_8632Police continue probing the levaya of HaGaon HaRav Shmuel Halevy Wosner ZT”L following the tragedy which claimed the life of a young avreich and a Chosson, and left another in serious condition, and dozens of others with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police are focusing on the events in Yeshivas Chachmei Lublin, particularly the pushing and shoving that began when the niftar was being moved from the beis medrash, which led to the fatal event on the stairway in the building. Avreich R’ Mordechai Gerber Z”L, 27, was trampled to death and others are struggling for their lives in local hospitals.

Police are seeking to determine if there was negligence on the part of persons who set up for the levaya. While people have been summoned by police to give their account of what occurred, two people have been questioned ‘under warning’, which signals a criminal indictment is likely. One of the findings is that the stairs do not conform to an acceptable standard and in all likelihood they will have to be destroyed and rebuilt as a result of the police investigation.

  1. This is very sad and the fact that we are going through I’d and seeing it is a sign from Hashem to improve our ways and do teshuva in any way possible. Moshiach is coming very soon and we must wake up starting with myself I have to look into my everyday life and make some change to be better it doesn’t have to be a huge change just a little. Remember Hashem says you just try and change to become better the size of a needle point and I will open up a huge doorway for you. Hashem please help us return to you and become better we are all one nation and really we love one another but unfortunately we have been in Galot so long it has really effected us please Hashem let us all return back home to you help us help us to return back home……
