  1. So heartbreaking that he wasn’t zoicha to see the beautiful building that he so generously donated at completion. His zechus for what he did for so many bnos yisroel has to be tremendous. Yehi Zichro Boruch.

  2. Rem Menachem Rotenberg introduced Mr. Kuperman to the Bais Faiga Family and was a close friend. We share in your tzar and wish Mrs. Kuperman arechas yomim v’shonim. May Reb Menachem have the kochos to contihue in his avodas hakodosh for the tzibur of Lakewood.BD”H

  3. BDE. Was very special. I’m sure the malachim from the toirah of all those thousands of children shall accompany him.
    So appropriate that the 8 th grade will be there.

  4. My name is WENDY JOY “BINAH” KUPPERMANN and I am currently sitting shivah for MY BELOVED FATHER, DAVID KUPPERMANN, Z’TL, together with my bereaved mother, Pola Anya Kuppermann. I have accompanied them to several of the dedications of our Yeshivas in Lakewood, NJ, in New York City. and in Eretz Yisrael, where my beloved Tatte’s largesse extended to many hospitals, as well. HOW DARE YOU CLAIM THAT MY PARENTS “NEVER HAD ANY CHILDREN OF THEIR OWN?” I demand an IMMEDIATE RETRACTION of so insulting and demeaning a statement! I will not show this travesty to my dear mother, Sheyichyeh, while we are sitting shiva, because of the added grief it would cause her. My beloved Tatte would be outraged to see such a BLATANT LIE n print!
