This past Friday, the second of Tamuz, our dear brother and friend, Rabbi Tzemach Cunin A”H returned his holy soul to Hashem, when he was suddenly and unexpectedly taken from us, at the young age of 43.
Tzemach loved his children dearly and all that were at the funeral still shudder at the excruciatingly difficult scene of his children saying their last goodbye. Tzemach was always there for anyone when they needed him, and his famous smile was sure to brighten up your day. Streaming into the shiva home by the hundreds, grief-stricken visitors tell of his warmth, genuine concern for every individual and humble lack of pretense.
Now its time for us to step up and be there for Tzemach’s wife Ada and their 5 precious children (Mendel 17, Goldie 16, Levi 13, Chaya Mushka 6, Chana Bluma 5).
A fund has been launched by friends and congregants to raise $1,000,000 for his family. The goal is to raise the entire amount before shiva concludes. The fund is being overseen by local rabbis and professionals, and will ensure that the Cunin children be cared for with dignity and care.
Please give generously. You will make a difference in the lives of a grieving widow and grief-stricken children.
