Friends and family are invited to a Shloshim gathering and Haschalas Sefer Torah in memory of R’ Shneur Hirsch, a noted baal chesed in Crown Heights, who passed away last month.

Shneur was vice president of the Modway furniture company through which he and his partners employed tens of Lubavitchers around the globe. He helped many families in need and others in a quiet fashion, acquiring for himself the name as a ba’al chessed and a ba’al tzedaka.

Friends recall his yiras shomayim and his quiet way of helping others with no fanfare, who saw his business as a shlichus to show people that you can be frum without compromise and still be successful in corporate America. 

The gathering will take place at the Crown Heights Shul, 570 Crown Street, (United Lubavitch Yeshiva) Albany entrance, for men and women. The Haschalas Sefer Torah will be begin at 7:00 PM.

The main program will begin at 8:00 PM, and will feature a siyum on Mishnayos and a keynote address by Rabbi Shais Taub.

Refreshments will be served.
