Rabbi Avrohom Yaakov Finkel Z'L

The levayah will take place at 9:45 a.m. at the Congregation Sons of Israel Memorial Chapel off of East 7th Street in Lakewood, NJ.  It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Rabbi Avraham Yaakov Finkel z”l. He was 90 years old. Born in 1926 in Basel, Switzerland, to his parents, Rabbi and Mrs. Yehoshua Matisyahu Finkel, he lived in The Hague, Netherlands, until 1942, when he was deported to Bergen-Belsen by the Nazis.
He survived the Holocaust and the horrors of the concentration camps, ultimately immigrating to the United States, where he rebuilt his life. He resided in Brooklyn, New York. Recently, Rabbi Finkel suffered from serious illness and was hospitalized at Jersey Shore Medical Center in Neptune, NJ. He passed away this morning. more HERE
