TRAGEDY – Sudden Petira Of Reb Mendy Klein Z”L, Well Known Philanthropist & Askan

YWN regrets to inform you of the sudden Petira of Reb Menachem Moshe “Mendy” Klein Z”L of Cleveland. He was approximately 65-years-old.

Reb Mendy was a well-known businessman, philanthropist and community leader. It would not be an understatement to say that the entire Cleveland Jewish Community rested on his shoulders.

He was involved in hundreds of causes, funding Kollelim, Yeshivos, and organizations around the globe.

He was supposed to be one of the honorees at the upcoming dinner for Agudath Israel of America.

He sufferred a massive heart attack on Wednesday afternoon and was Niftar minutes later.

The Levaya will be held in Cleveland on Friday at 12:00PM in Yavne High School 2475 South Green Rd in Beachwood, Ohio.

Kevura will be in Eretz Yisroel.

Agudath Israel of America released the following statement:

Reb Mendy was one of the parnesei hador, a baal tzedaka on a grand scale whose chesed toward the downtrodden and needy was legendary. What set Mendy apart from other generous philanthropists was his passion — his passion for Klal Yisroel and Eretz Yisroel, his passion for the downtrodden and the needy, his passion for fairness and justice. He invested his tzedaka dollars wisely, and the dividends on those investments are reflected most dramatically in the countless tortured neshamos to whom he brought healing and happiness.

Agudath Israel was looking forward to paying public tribute to this extraordinary individual at its upcoming annual dinner. Instead we will search for ways to perpetuate his remarkable legacy for generations to come.

We join Mr. Klein’s choshuve family in mourning this terrible loss.

המקום ינחם אותם בתוך שאר אבילי ציון וירושלים
