BDE: R’ Yosef Klein, z”l
By: YS Gold
We are saddened to inform you of the passing of R’ Yosef Klein, a longtime Boro Park resident, at the age of 95
Reb Yosef was born in America in the year 1928, and he remained frum for all his life—a rarity for those times.
He would tell stories of those early days in America, the challenges in Yiddishkeit, and the nisyonos for shabbos and chinuch.
For many years he davened in the Monostricher Shul, and in later years in the Yoka Beis Medrash. In both of these Shuls he was beloved and admired, and everyone recalls his infections smile, always having a good word for everyone.
He was an accomplished baal tefillah, and the highlight of his tefillos was his Yedid Nefesh, so fondly recalled by so many of his listeners.
The Levaya took place in Shomrei Hadas Sunday morning.
Yehi Zichro Baruch.
