Reb Hershl Klein obm

An obituary of Reb Hershl Klein who passed away a few months ago was published in this weeks Jewish News.

Mr Klein, who was a mispallel in Yeshivah Shul for 40 years, was a quietly spoken man who went about his chesed work in a modest and unassuming manner. One thing that stands out among all the good work that he did was his establishment of the Yeshivah Welfare Fund. This fund not only provided, and continues to provide, assistance to many members of our community who are "down on their luck" but also helps those in need outside the Yeshivah community. This fund is still continuing its good work.

His practical advice and no-nonsense manner is already being missed by all who knew him.
