Members of the Jewish communities of Tucson, AZ and Brooklyn, NY, participated in a heartbreaking funeral for the baby son of Rabbi Yossi and Naomi Winner, Shluchim of Chabad at the University of Arizona.
University students were visibly moved as Tehillim was said before the procession for 3-month-old child Dovber Winner left from Evergreen Mortuary & Cemetery in Tucson on Sunday.
The boy passed away on Shabbos afternoon and is survived by his parents and young siblings Mendel, Shmulie, Dovid, Zalman and Bluma.
On Monday morning, the family was joined by many friends at the Shomrei Hadas Chapels in Boro Park. The procession passed by Lubavitch Headquarters – 770 Eastern Parkway in Crown Heights before interment at Old Montefiore Cemetery in Cambria Heights.
A campaign has been set up with the goal to “allow these dedicated Shluchim the space to grieve and alleviate their financial responsibilities.” Donate at youcaring.com/winner-family-534195.
The family will be observing Shiva at the home of their grandparents Rabbi Zushe and Esther Winner – 321 Seabreeze Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11224. They will be joined there by grandparents R’ Yaakov Shlomo and Rivki Goldstein of Toronto, Canada.
