Twenty five year old Gedalya, graduate of the FJC’s ‘Or Avner’ Jewish school in Vinnitza, Ukraine, was tragically killed after being hit by a garbage truck on the corner of Kingston Ave. and Carroll St., Brooklyn NY on Sunday morning.
Gedalya OBM, a well-known and especially beloved member of the Jewish community, was currently studying for rabbinical ordination at the Morristown Yeshiva of NJ. He was a talented and extremely learned young leader who was completely devoted to the revival of Jewish life and tradition among his fellow Jews.
The FJC wishes to send its condolences to his dear parents, who have lost their only child, and to the Jewish Community of Vinnitza that had lost one of its best. May you feel no more sorrow from now onwards.
