Chaim Yosef Yitzchak Fail, a young and friendly student from the Lubavitch community in Argentina, passed away on Wednesday, 17 Adar II 5774.
He was 16 years old.
This past Sunday, during the holiday of Purim, doctors found a malignancy in his brain which quickly spread over his body.
The news came as a shock to the community and his former classmates at Yeshivas Lubavitch in Buenos Aires and at the sephardic Centro Educativo Toratenu school.
His father R’ Gabi Fail has been involved for many years in the Tzivos Hashem youth activities of Chabad Lubavitch of Argentina and is a member of Rabbi Yosef Yitzchok Feigelstock’s Beis Menachem community.
“He was a very nice and friendly bochur,” a person who knew him told COLlive. “He was a yireh shamayim, a tomim and had good midos.”
He is survived by his father, his mother Sari, and his 5 siblings.
The levaya will be taking place today in Buenos Aires, at 3:00 pm at the Sephardic Congregation on Lavalle Street, and 3:15 pm by Beis Menachem in B. Mer.
