Hundreds gathered for an event marking the Shloshim – 30 days since the passing of Rabbi Kuti Rapp OBM, on Tuesday evening at Lubavitch Yeshiva in Crown Heights.
Rabbi Rapp was a Mashgiach at the Central Tomchei Tmimim Yeshiva at 770, who also directed mivtzoim activities at JFK International Airport.
A spirited activist for Israeli causes, Rabbi Rapp’s Shloshim event coincided with the 10th anniversary of the expulsion from Gush Katif, of which he was a vocal opponent.
MC for the event was Rabbi Dovid Sholom Pape. Beis Din Rabbi Yaakov Schwei spoke, as well as Rabbi Rapp’s children and members of the 770 hanhallah.
Other speakers included El Al personnel and fellow activists for Israeli causes.
A special Teshura printed for the occasion was distributed to participants.
