Yerucham Katz OBM tragically passed away last night at the age of 38, leaving behind a young grieving family, a wife and three orphaned children.
Yerucham was a friend to all, and was known to have a genuine heart of gold, always ready and willing to go above, and beyond to help his fellow.
In addition to his dear wife and children, Yerucham was adored by so many in our community, and was a loving brother and uncle.
“Yerucham would walk into the room, and his smile was contagious,” a dear friend recalls fondly. “Yerucham had a way of making everyone around him feel special and cared for.”
Today, the entire Jewish community is grieving, as we are all one extended family, and one’s sorrows are all of ours.
As we approach the high holidays, a time when we turn to the Almighty, and ask Him for blessings of health, wealth, and prosperity for all of our loved ones, it is an appropriate time to show Hashem how we His children are truly there for one another and their times of need.
A campaign has been set up by friends and family of Yerucham to help ensure that his wife and children have the financial stability necessary to navigate this unthinkable time, as well as the foreseeable future as they begin picking up the pieces of their lives, now torn apart.

Remember, the Almighty does not remain indebted, and has a special place in his heart for widows and orphans, as well as those who support them.
May we know of no more sorrow, and may we all be inscribed in the book of life, with health, wealth, prosperity and Nahas from our children.
