Reb Meir Roness, longtime Crown Heights resident, passed away Tuesday night, 23 Teves, 5775.
He had just turned 74 a day ago.
Reb Meir was well known to all, for his happy and young-spirited personality, while he would go around collecting money for Chasidus Shiurim in non-Chabad Yeshivos all over New York.
He began being involved in organizing these shiurim as a bochur many decades ago, and has continued doing so under the Lubavitch Youth Organization until his last days.
Many Lubavitch bochurim would contribute to Reb Meir’s quiet and unknown organization of Tanya shirum in non-Chabad Yeshivos.
He is survived by his wife and children: Chanie Abramowitz (New Haven, CT), Dini Gotlieb (Toronto, ON) Dvorie Botnick (Crown Heights), Mushky Roness (Crown Heights) Yossi Roness, Shumi Roness (NY, NY), Zevi Roness (Crown Heights) and Mendy Roness (Crown Heights).
The Levaya will take place today, Wednesday, passing by 770 at 2:00 pm.
The Roness family will sit Shiva at 529 Crown St (bet Albany & Kingston Aves).
Four minyanim are needed.
Shachris at 8:45, at 9:30am, and at 10AM.
Mincha 4:30 and 4:40.
Family request private/quiet time between 1pm and 3pm.
Baruch Dayan Haemes.
