By Hamodia Staff

Hundreds of people attended the levaya of longtime community askan Reb Yankie Meyer z”l, who was niftar Thursday night.

The levaya, which began at 10:30 Friday morning, was held in Boro Park at Reb Yankie’s home at 1123 57th street.

Kevurah will be in Woodbridge, N.J.

Reb Yanky founded Misaskim in 2004, and spearheaded the organization as it became a clearinghouse for many community-wide projects.

In addition to providing aveilim with levayah assistance, shivah chairs, sifrei Torah and other necessary items, Misaskim expanded under his leadership to provide the Jewish community with many other services, including kavod hameis, as well as Project Yedid, which provides care packages to orphans and widows. One of his annual projects was organizing a Yom Tefillah during the Aseres Yemei Teshuvah where thousands of cheder children gathered to be mispallel for cholei Yisrael.
