It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Reb Yaakov ben Reb Shlomo Hakohen Feinzeig z”l, who was niftar at the age of 79. Reb Yaakov, who initially resided in Brooklyn, NY, spent his last few years in the Pine River Village development in Lakewood, NJ.
Reb Yaakov endured tremendous yissurim during recent years, as he battled illness with unwavering emunah and bitachon. The kibbud av demonstrated by his wonderful children and family inspired those who were witness to their love and care. Reb Yaakov and his wife merited to raise a beautiful family of bnei and bnos Torah of whom he was exceedingly proud. He maintained a lifelong kesher to chasidei Amshinov and throughout his life demonstrated great chashivus for Torah and talmidei chachomim, carrying himself in a refined manner, and imparting timeless Yiddishe ideals to his choshuveh family.
The levaya was held at the Pine River Village Shul and the aron was taken to JFK Airport and flownto Eretz Yisroel for kevurah on Har Hamenuchos in Yerushalayim.
May Reb Yaakov be a meilitz yosher for his entire family and all of Klal Yisroel.
Yehi zichro boruch.
