With great sadness and shock we report the sudden and untimely passing of R’ Yitzchok Yirmiyahu (Itzik) Rabinowitz, OB”M, a Lubavitcher businessman from Yerushalayim. He was 55 years old.
R’ Itzik was on a business trip in Ohio when he began feeling unwell, and tragically passed away. His body was discovered by hotel workers on Friday morning and fervent efforts by multiple organizations were made to expedite his transfer to Israel for burial.
He is survived by his wife Leah (nee Hartman), and their children Mrs. Bella Weiss – Monsey, NY; Rabbi Mendy Rabinowitz – Rishon, ER”Y; Chana, Arik, Zevi, and Miri.
He is also survived by his mother, Mrs. Shoshana Rabinowitz and his siblings Rabbi Shmuel Rabinowitz – Lakewood, NJ; Rabbi Dubi Rabinowitz – Crown Heights; and R’ Yossi Rabinowitz – Kfar Chabad.
The Levaya will take place tomorrow, Sunday in Yerushalayim.
