BD’E — Alexander Zisha Rosenbloom, Z”l

By Hamodia Staff

NEW YORKHamodia is saddened to report the petirah of Alexander Zisha Rosenbloom, z”l, who was niftar after being severely injured in a car accident six years ago.

Alexander Zisha was one of the founders of the Tantzers organization, a group which began by answering the call to appear at sparsely attended weddings in order to add to the simchah of the chassan and kallah.

With time, as the need subsided, the organization altered its mission to help bring joy and respite for sick people and their families by hosting events for those who were ill. These events, which took place monthly, would take the patients out of their residences and provide them with an evening of enjoyment and entertainment, including food, prizes, music and more.

Alexander Zisha, who was the driving force behind this wonderful chessed project, insisted on remaining out of the spotlight. When an organization wanted to honor him for his work, it took much cajoling to convince him to come out to accept the plaque that was presented to him.

After spending an evening at a Tantzers event in Monsey, Alexander Zisha headed home with other members of the group. While traveling on the Palisades Parkway, the car swerved and was crushed in the resulting accident. One passenger was severely injured, and Alexander Zisha was left in a coma.

His friends in the Tantzers organization dedicated all their chessed as a zechus for his refuah, and his brother, Shauli, took up the reins of the organization. Tantzer members would visit the rehab each week to spend time with Alexander Zisha.

On Isru Chag Succos, some fifty volunteers from the organization gathered at the tzion of the Ribnitzer Rebbe, zy”a, and poured out their hearts to the Ribono Shel Olam to grant their beloved friend a refuah. Sadly, just one week later, Alexander Zisha returned his neshamah to Shamayim.

The levayah is scheduled for Monday evening at 10:30 in Shomrei Hadas, 3803 14th Avenue.
