Dr. Ben Landa, a member of the Chabad community in Vancouver, Canada, passed away on Sunday, 2 Adar, 5781.
He was 78 years old.
Dr. Landa studied at McMaster University in Hamilton, where he received his Ph.D. in chemistry. As a student, he would often frequent the Chabad House in Hamilton.
He later moved to Vancouver, Canada, around the same time that Chabad established their first center in Vancouver. He first visited the Chabad House in order to say Kaddish for his mother’s Yahrzeit. After he returned regularly and immersed himself in the study of Chassidus.
