The Shloshim – 30 days since the passing of Rabbi Meir Roness OBM, a chossid who helped organize and fund the dissemination of Chassidic teachings for over 50 years, was marked on Thursday.
A familiar and beloved presence in the community, Rabbi Roness was an individual of unsurpassed warmth, sincerity and devotion who encouraged many to give to charity.
The event held Kollel Menachem in Crown Heights is being organized by the Central Lubavitch Youth Organization (“Tzach”) in tribute to his lifelong work under the organization.
He passed away on Jan. 13, just one day after celebrating his 74th birthday.
