TRAGEDY: Sudden Petirah of R’ Yoel Blumenthal Z”L [UPDATED]

candleIt is with great regret we inform you of the sudden Petirah of Lakewood resident R’ Yoel (Julian) Blumenthal Z”L.

R’ Yoel Z”L, approximately 43 years old, was not feeing well Thursday night. Early Friday morning, he was found unresponsive.

Hatzolah rushed to his home, but there was unfortunately nothing they could do R”L.

R’ Yoel Z”L was a Talmid of the Long Beach Yeshiva, and served as a member of the Board of Directors.

The Niftar leaves behind a wife and many Yesomim R’L.

PLEASE NOTE CHANGE IN LOCATION: Levaya will be held at Mesivta Shaar Hatalmud, located at 1951 New Central Avenue in Lakewood, at 10:30 a.m.

Kevurah will follow at the 7th Street Chapel.

Baruch Dayan Ha’emes.

(Note: In response to the many inquiries regarding the delay of reporting the Petirah, it was requested we wait until now as a family member was not yet notified.)

  1. Oy.
    Reb Yoel z”l was a Tzaddik of a man. Always a smile. Wit such a calm and pleasant demeanor. Soft spoken. A true, emesdik ben Torah…
    Mi Yiten Lanu Es Temurosoi.
    May HKBH provide Nechama for the family and Klal Yisrael…

  2. Yoel was a very good person, it is so painful to see him being ripped away from us, especially at such a young age.
    Today, Zos Chanukah, is a day we can beg Hashem to take us out of gulos with Moshiach and bring us to eretz Yisroel
