    Very sad and shocked to hear. Uncle Ray was our Shadchon. A person who was loved by everyone. Was a member of Hatzolah of Monsey for many years. יהי זכרו ברוך

  • Out of towner says:

    There are other very choshove sons. The Niftar himself was a Hatzalah member for many years. My guess is he was one of the first in Monsey. Plus he was a Baal Koreh and Baal Tefillah for many years.

    Very sad news.

    Reb Refoel or Ray z”l as we all called him,was a relation of ours,was a pillar to the family and Monsey community,no words will ever describe him enough. There will never be such a person again in the world like him. So Much in Such a Ball Chessed,as well Rosh Hakahl,Ball Koireh,Chazan Par Excellence with all the Yeskishe Nusach,Hatzolah, Chevra Kadisha,Talmid Chochom always learing,you name it,Ray always at the forefront. What a loss to the Klall and Monsey Specific. Hashem Should Give The Choshive Family Kochos and Only Simcha. Yes,Simcha was Mr. Ray Levy always being Mesamech others with his Laughter and Joy of Life,Oy Vey To US we lost a Real Yid. Crying for You.

    Reb Refoel or Ray z”l as we all called him,Bais Tefilah Shul without Ray?? How can that be??
    Monsey without the tefilos of Ray??,Monsey without Rays Laughter??Oy Vey Monsey Cry,You Lost one of your Gold Crowns. Monsey without Ray is like no Sun. Hashem Help US Go On.

  • Hunch says:

    BDE. I met him a few times on simchos Torah by the early minyan in lkwd.

  • BH says:

    Ray Levy z”l,so much to say about this Adam Godol. Growing up in Monsey and specially davening in Bais Tefilah with Rav Breslauer Shlita he should be Gezunt,Ray z”l was so much part and parcel of our life. His Davening Before The Amud,His Voice Sweetening the Tefilla,His Hadlokas Neiros on Chanukah Wow!!,Such a Gorgous Rendition of The Yekish Tunes,Precise,Pristine,how about Getting Mussar from Ray,about How to Daven and Be a Mentch. Ray was there for Young and Old always with a good Vort,A Smile,a Ray Levy Twist. Geshmak. Chaval Al Deavdin! You won’t find Two Ray Levys in the world. I really can go on and on.
