R’ Menachem Emanuel, a longtime and much-beloved member of the Anash community in Chicago, passed away on Thursday, 14 Kislev, 5782.
He was 81 years old.
On 12 Tishrei 5744, Menachem married Devorah Elian and a wedding in Crown Height. Prior to their wedding, the couple wrote to the Rebbe with two potential dates to choose for the wedding and asked the Rebbe which day he recommended. The Rebbe recommended the earlier date.
On the day of their wedding, the Kalla received a call from the Rebbe’s secretary, Rabbi Binyonim Klein, notifying them that the Rebbe was going to hold a farbrengen that night in 770, and the Rebbe was inviting them to hold their wedding Sheva Brachos at the Rebbe’s Farbrengen in 770.
Mr. Emanuel worked as a Kashrus longtime supervisor for the OK Kosher in the greater Chicago area.
He is survived by his wife Devorah (nee Elian) and his children: Meyer Emanuel, Chaim Emanuel, Avi Emanuel, Rivka Emanuel, Shmuel Emanuel, and Dovber Emanuel and grandchildren.
The levaya will take place Thursday at 1:00 PM graveside at Silverman and Weiss Cemetery (Bnei Reuven Section) in Forest Park.
Baruch Dayan Haemes.
