      Baruch Dayan HaEmet: Izzie Kaplan z"l

      Hebron's Jewish Community greatly mourns the death of Israel (Izzie) Kaplan.


      Izzie was a truly righteous Jew, who not only cared about his brethren in Eretz Yisrael, but worked tirelessly for Jews throughout Israel, be they in Gush Katif, Hebron, Sderot and other places in Judea, Samaria, and all over the country.

      His passing is very sad, and on behalf of Hebron I want to wish the entire Kaplan family sincerest condolences. 

      HaMakom Yenachem Otchem b'toch shaar avlei Tzion v'Yerushalayaim.

      According to a Toronto Web site, the funeral will take place at 12:00 noon in Canada today and in Jerusalem tomorrow (Monday, 29 Adar) at 11:30 at Shamgar, followed by burial at Har Hamenuchot.

       

      The Shiva will be at the home of David and Tiffany Kaplan: Yehuda 196, Modi'in


      May his memory be blessed.

      B'sorot tovot.
