BDE: R’ Aaron Yitzchok Stern, z”l
By: Yehuda Alter
We are saddened to inform you of the passing of R’ Aaron Tzvi Stern, the son of, ybl”ch, R’ Chaim Stern. He was 66 years of age.
The family hails from the town of Makava, and the niftar, as well as his entire family, retained a strong connection to the Makava Admorim, including todays rebbe. The niftar was extremely devoted to the Makava Admorim both of Eretz Yisroel and the United States. For many years he would journey especially to Eretz Yisroel to be with the Makava Rebbe for the Seder night.
In addition, he was extremely close to Rav Hershele of Spinka, and later to his son Rav Abish’l of Spinka (this connection is due to a story that took place during WWII).
He worked for many years in Boro Park, at the family business, and he was well-known in the community. An acquaintance relates that he would greet every person with a smile, and always went above and beyond to help whomever he could.
The Levaya will take place this evening at 10:00 in front of Beis Medrash Sha’arei Yosher on 16th avenue.
Kevura will be at the Satmar Beis Hachaim in New Jersey.
