Klal Yisrael has lost a very special and holy individual with the sudden petirah of R' Boruch Alexander Zisha Ritterman ז״ל. R' Zisha was niftar on Friday morning, the second day of Yom Tov.
R' Zisha was one of the pillars of R' Avraham Schorr Shlita's shul and early morning kollel, and a member of the Chevra Kadisha for many years. The son of Rav Nechemia Chaim Ritterman זצ״ל, the famous first grade Rebbe in Yeshiva Toras Emes Kamenitz, R' Zisha was well known for his integrity, soft-spoken nature and never wanting to charge people for his computer repair services. He was a resident of the Flatbush community, where he was beloved by all for his warmth and many quiet acts of chesed.
R' Zisha had just finished sitting shiva for his brother, Shlomoh Ritterman ז״ל, who suddenly passed away in February.
R’ Zisha leaves behind a wife and four daughters, two of whom are unmarried.
This is an unimaginable tragedy.
His almanah and yesomos desperately need our help during this very difficult time.
An Emergency Fund has been established to support the family. Please contribute generously.
