Shneur Zalman Pevzner, a bochur who learned in Brunoy, France, passed away on Tuesday, 10 Elul, 5775.
He was 22 and suffered from a terrible illness during the past year.
Shneur Zalman is the son of Shluchim Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak and Rivkah Pevzner, who direct the Sinai Schools in Paris. His grandfather was Rabbi Hillel Pevzner OBM, Shliach who founded the first Jewish day school in post-World War II Paris.
Shneur Zalman was a Shliach in the Brunoy Yeshiva in France, and had a huge “kuch” in Moshiach, his friends said. He organized campaigns and Shiurim about Geulah and Moshiach.
He had been suffering from a terrible illness for the past while. Many took Hachlotos in his merit in a campaign started by his friends.
“We ask that people continue to send in hachlata – resolutions in Shneur Zalman’s memory,” his friends requested. Click here to add a hachlata.

He is also survived by his grandparents, Mrs. Echka Pevzner and Rabbi Sholom Ber and Sara Schanowitz of Crown Heights.
The Levaya will take place tonight at 6:30 pm in Paris, from ‘Sinai’ of Paris, and from there continue to Eretz Yisroel.
