Misaskim Cleans Home Where Leiby Kletzky A’H Was Murdered

jm misaskim aron homePHOTOS: On Tuesday, July 26th, the NYPD was getting ready to wrap up its nearly two-week-long investigation at the Levi Aaron house on East 2nd Street. Before they prepared to return the house to its owners, members of the NYPD reached out to Misaskim’s Disaster and Recovery team to come down to the house for another sweep to ensure kavod haniftar.

“The NYPD’s sensitivity to our community and to the family of Leiby Kletzky, a’h, is truly remarkable,” said one volunteer at the scene. “It will do its utmost to accommodate, despite the intense activity as its investigators prepare to leave the crime scene.”

Misaskim immediately dispatched the same volunteers who were at the scene when the terrible discovery was made in the wee hours of July 13th. These same volunteers were also the ones who spent that day at the Medical Examiner’s Office, working alongside the coroners to make certain that the proper kavod h’achron was given to Leiby a”h and that the levayah could still take place on that day. Misaskim volunteers have undergone the necessary training that enables them to preserve kavod hames in these tragic circumstances.

“Misaskim would once again like to publicly thank the NYPD for its support and understanding”, Misaskim said. “The volunteers are deeply grateful for their ongoing positive relationship with the NYPD”.

“It is Misaskim’s sincerest hope that Klal Yisroel will be shielded from any more suffering and pain in the future”. TLS.

  1. What is the newsworthiness of this item? Understandably, special training and preparation is needed in taking care of Kovod Hameis and the interment of human remains. But for Heavens’sake why do the family, friends and plain strangers who were so saddened by this gruesome story need to again be jarred by its horror? Do you believe the family can have a Nechoma when the gory details are rehashed yet again? This is most certainly a mitzva that should be governed by Hatznea Leches, and those who are Oisek in it will get their S’char from the Aibeshter, not the Media!

  2. A groise shkoyach to Misaskim for the inredible work they do tirelessly 24/7 on behalf of the klal, often under the most trying circumstances. How horrible and devastating it must’ve been for them on that awful night, but they devotedly performed their avodas hakodesh b’kavod ub’ahava. They’re truly amazing.
