    I think many people are “curious” to know the name of the person. Most people are smart enough to keep quiet and not ASK though. Borch Dayan Haemes.

    Don’t understand why it’s smart not to ask- they will be having an anonymous levaya?

  • Mm says:

    Those who know him know who it is

    To those who want to know who it was. Think about it, if it happened to someone in your family, would you want everyone to know?

    @Command Post – I’m with you 100%. He had a stroke yrs ago and walked with difficulty even with his cane. But he would come to shiur and participate enthusiastically. He was always cheerful and cracking jokes, which is astounding considerably the challenges he had in his life. Nebech.
