Petirah of Reb Velvel Salel Z”L

candleWe regret to inform you of the Petirah of Reb Velvel Salel Z”L, 53, of Lakewood, who was Niftar today following an illness.

Reb Velvel Z”L was a Talmid Chacham Learning in BMG, and was also the Executive Director of L’maan Hashabbos.

He leaves behind a family with several children, of whom got married last week in Lakewood.

  1. I knew him well wat a choshuva person was so midakdek in every mitzva .I just got back from the levaya it was amazinhg to hear about how choshuv he was and especially how he was so midakdek in every mitzva untill his last day .may he be a mailitz yoisher to his beautiful family

  2. As as neighbor of the niftar I can attest that R’ Velvel was a giant amongst men. I observed him much the last while as he was suffering horribly and the way he went about with serving the RSO despite so much pain and weakness is a testament to the greatness of the niftar.
    I would watch him walk to shul in the morning (it seems it was easier then driving or being driven) and then home after even till several weeks ago showed what Tefila B’zibbur meant to him. May HKBH give his wife and his beautiful children the koach and the ability to go on. May HKBH give the family a true nechamah.

  3. I was neighbors with him about seven years ago. Still remember him being ma’vir sedra. Each word pronounced beautifully and with hartz. Always an eidel demeanor. We will miss him greatly.
