Hundreds gathered at an event Tuesday evening to mark the first Yartzeit of Rabbi Yonah Avtzon, the longtime director of Sichos In English (SIE) publishing and renowned Shadchan, in Crown Heights.
Speakers included Rabbi Yaakov Chazan – brother-in-law of Rabbi Avtzon, Rabbi Moshe Avtzon – a nephew of Rabbi Avtzon, Rabbi Levi Avtzon – eldest son of Rabbi Avtzon, Rabbi Mendy Blau – nephew of Rabbi Avtzon, and Rabbi Meir Simcha Kogan.
A siyum was made by Sruly Avtzon.
Speakers remarked on Rabbi Avtzon’s dedication as a Chosid of the Rebbe and to the spreading of the Rebbe’s teachings, as well as in helping many to find their Shidduch, and offering assistance to many people with advice and other help.
A touching video presentation with a song written by Rabbi Avtzon’s children was shown as well.
