    With great sadness we regret to infrom you of the untimely passing of Rabbi Shimon Potash, OB”M, a member of the London Lubavitch community. He passed away on Tisha B’Av. He was 47-years-old.

    Today, Tisha b’Av, the Lubavitch community in London and beyond has been plunged into even deeper mourning with the sudden, and untimely, passing of Rabbi Shimon Potash.

    Born in London in 1973, Shimon studied at the Lubavitch Junior Boys’ School and Mechinah, Yeshivas Lubavitch Manchester and Oholei Torah New York, before going on Shlichus to Sydney Australia and completing Semicha.

    Shortly after Shimon got married, he and his wife Emmanuelle went on Shlichus to Tunisia for several years before settling in London. Shimon was a devoted husband, father, son and brother to his family, and a respected teacher and member of the Stamford Hill community. He led Children’s Services and Youth Activities, and worked with Lubavitch Foundation and the school, as well as other Tzorchei Tzibbur including his regular Kriyas HaTorah at Beis Lubavitch.

    Shimon will be fondly remembered for his gentle manner and soft voice, his intelligent wit and infectious laugh. His unending compassion and sensitivity towards others will be this community’s most cherished memory of all.

    He is survived by his wife Emmanuelle, and their children Menachem MendelChaya MushkaChaimLevi Yischok, Nosson, and Yehuda.

    He is also survived by his parents, Rabbi and Mrs Ephraim and Toebe Potash, and siblings.
