Loss in the Beth El Community: Our Member Jacob Esses z"l - Husband of Ruth Esses

In sorrow, we inform you of the passing of our member, Jacob Esses z"l, husband of our member, Ruth Esses. 
The graveside funeral has already taken place. 
Shiva will be held at the home of Ruth's daughter, Sarah Esses (577 Colonade Rd. West Hempstead, NY 11552) with visiting hours daily from 12:00 - 5:00PM and 7:00 - 9:45PM from today through Friday, February 18 ending with Mincha/Maariv at 5:30 PM. The family have requested that only vaccinated people should attend the shiva. Masks are optional. 
In lieu of a shiva visit, messages of condolence can be emailed to Ruth at . Just as with a shiva visit in which the mourners are not expected to "entertain"/care for others during this time, please do not expect a reply, but know that your message is a great source of comfort to Ruth as she navigates her loss. 


May the Esses family be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.
