With sadness, we inform the community of the passing of Shmiel (Sidney) Russ, a longtime Crown Heights resident, just before Shabbos.
He was 88.
Shmiel is well known to all of us for his participation in all the community’s simchas and all the brachas he sincerely gave to everyone he felt had a need.
Shmiel was known for his extreme devotion to his family, and for caring for his sister and nephews for many, many years.
May he continue to be a good advocate for Klal Yisroel, and may he have a lichtacha place in Gan Eden.
His levaya will pass by 770 at 10:45 Sunday morning.
Baruch Dayan Ha’emes – Shmiel HaCohen ben Kalman.
