Rabbi Groner ע"ה - Levaya / Tehillim Update

From the Yeshivah Community Website:

The Levaya/Tehillim service for Rabbi Yitzchok Dovid Groner OB''M will be held on the outdoor grounds of Yeshivah Centre in front of the Smorgon Family Wing, 92 Hotham Street, St. Kilda East, at 2pm on Wednesday 6th Tammuz, 5768 July 9, 2008.

In line with Chabad customs and Rabbi Y.D. Groner's wishes, a eulogy will not be said.

No onsite parking on Yeshivah Centre will be available and those who are able to walk to the Levaya/Tehillim service are encouraged to do so.

People may come to say Tehillim for Rabbi Y.D. Groner OBM at the Melbourne Chevra Kadisha 115 - 119 Inkerman Street, St Kilda at any time until 1pm on Wednesday July 9, 2008.

Tehillim Berabim (communal reciting of Psalms) will take place from 2pm to 2.20pm. There will be an opportunity for people to pass the Aron to pay their respects to Rabbi Y. D. Groner OBM for a few moments after the Tehillim service. The Aron will be leaving the Yeshivah Centre at 3.45pm sharp and there will be an accompanying of the Aron from the Werdiger Hall, along Hotham Street to Balaclava Road. The Aron will then go directly to the airport.

Rabbi Y.D. Groner OBM will be buried in Har Hazeisim in Eretz Yisroel, near his parents in accordance with his wishes.

The family will be sitting Shiva at 80 Hotham Street, St. Kilda East.

On Tuesday morning, 12 Tammuz 5768, July 15th 2008 both minyonim for Shacharis will be held at 8.15am. The family will be standing up from Shiva after Shacharis.


The Shloshim will be held at Yeshivah Centre, 92 Hotham St on Thursday 7th Menachem Av 5768 - August 7th 2008 at 8:00pm.

Other emails have said that the Levaya/Tehillim will be held in the Werdiger Hall and I am assuming that the information on the Yeshivah Website is correct.
