Thousands attended the levayah of venerated Chassid Harav Yosef Binyamin Williger, zt”l, on Friday in Boro Park, including many Rebbes, Rabbanim and Roshei Yeshivah.

The levayah began in front of the Mukatch beis medrash and continued via the Sanz-Klausenberg beis medrash. Harav Williger was very close with both Chassidic courts.

On Motzoei Shabbos, his aron will be flown to Eretz Yisrael, where kevurah will be Sunday on Har Hamenuchos.
