R’ Meir Aaron Schreiber, a Lubavitch chossid in Crown Heights who worked as a lawyer and was a baal tzedakah, passed away on Wednesday, 4 Elul, 5779.
He was 69 and passed away after battling a brief illness.
R’ Meir Schreiber moved to Crown Heights in 1976, and was a lawyer by profession.
He was a known Baal Tzedaka for many years, handing out donations by the dozens, as people came from all over the world to meet with him to ask for his assistance.
He was active in many different organizations, and utilized his legal skills to help many local mosdos.
He assisted the Crown Heights Jewish Community Council with legal matters, and was active in community affairs. In 2010 he ran for Vaad Hakohol in Crown Heights, running as “the sole independent candidate who has a history of respect for both Rabbonim,” he wrote.
He also served as one of the founding board members of Camp Chayolei Hamelech, as well as assisted Machon Chana school and the Morristown Yeshiva with an alumni campaign.
He is survived by his children Elky Cole – Las Vegas, NV, Moshe Schreiber – Crown Heights, Yitzi Schreiber – Australia, Estee Majerczyk – Crown Heights, Mendy Schreiber – Silver Spring, MD and Zalmy Schreiber – Crown Heights.
The levaya will take place tomorrow, Thursday leaving Shomrei Hadas at 12 pm, passing by 770 at 1 pm.
Baruch Dayan Ha’emes.
