The Crown Heights Jewish community in Brooklyn is shocked over the sudden passing of one of its active members who passed away suddenly on Sunday night, 18 Adar 5775.
Nadiv Kehaty, only 30-years-old, collapsed suddenly earlier in the day while attending a Siddur party at the Oholei Torah boys school where his son learns.
He suffered a heart-attack and was immediately transported to the New York Methodist Hospital in Park Slope, where he passed away hours later.
Nadiv was a senior rental specialist at Lang Realty, LLC in New York City and was one of the founders of the Itchke’s Shtiebel, a young shul in Crown Heights, led by Rabbi Chaim Fogelman.
“He was extremely kind, a pillar and founder of the shul,” one of his friends told COLlive.com, still reeling over the devastating news. “He always greeted everyone with a warm handshake and smile. He was a dedicated and terrific father and husband.”
He is survived by his wife Toby Kehaty (nee Ezagui) and their children Moshe, Yuda, Shoshana and Yaakov.
He is also survived by his parents, Uzzi and Rivkah Kehaty of New Orleans, and siblings.
The levaya will take place today (Monday), leaving Shomrei Hadas in Boro Park at 12:00 noon and passing by 770 Eastern Parkway at 12:45pm.
The Kehaty family will be sitting Shiva at 1229 President St #2c Btwn New York and Nostrand Avenues.
Shiva hours will be 11am-2pm and 6pm-10pm.
Please respect the given times as requested by the family.
Shacharis 10am Mincha 6:45 Maariv Bizmano
