A London rabbi, Uri Ashkenazi was a leader of the Stanislaver Chasidic community, Hamodia reported. He died Thursday at 76.
Rabbi Hershel Gluck, president of Shomrim, wrote on Facebook that he was “an exceedingly holy man and a great lover of humanity.
“He recently told me, that he went to court to act as a character witness for a cab driver, a Muslim man, on the back of which the man was acquitted.
Every human being has a limited time on earth. In his passing he has merited to continue helping people as he did throughout his life. He is reminding us about the vital importance of protecting ourselves and others from COVID-19.”
