BDE: R’ Yekusiel Rosner, z”l, pillar of tzeddaka and chessed

It is with a heavy heart that we inform you of the passing of Reb Yekusiel Rosner, z”l, an incredible ba’al tzeddakah, a personality overflowing with love for his fellow Yidden, and supporter of countless causes and institutions.

Reb Yekusial was born 47 years ago, to his father Reb Shloime Mechel, z”l—one of the primary askonim who assisted the Satmar Rebbe in establishing the village of Kiryas Yoel. It was from him that he inherited a tradition of askonus and generosity.

Reb Yekusiel was blessed with success in business—but, according to those who knew him, this did not change him one bit. “He remained every bit as relatable and humble, always with a sense of humor and a good word to everyone.” 

And then there was his tzeddkah: From countless of accounts, we learn about his incredible levels of tzeddakah—generosity that defies belief. And this is just from what is known. “Tzeddakah without boundaries,” one acquaintance describes it. 

Aside from his massive sums of tzeddakah to Satmar and its institutions, he singlehandedly supported Rav Yechezkel Roth, zt”l, and considered him his personal Rebbe. 

Now Reb Yekusiel ascends to Shomayim to be reunited with his beloved Rebbe, following decades of generosity and selflessness for his fellow Yidden. 

The levaya will take place at 12:30 tonight at the Karlsburger Shul, and at 2:30 at the Satmar Shul in Kiryas Yoel. 

Yehi Zichro Baruch.
