(YeshivaWorldNews) After a grueling two weeks, the body of Chaim (Harry) Rosenberg, z"l, of Flatbush was found and identified in the rubble of the Surfside condo collapse. He was 52.
Stepson Joe Roth of Teaneck is still in Surfside making arrangements.
Rosenberg's daughter, Malki Weisz, and her husband, Benny, of Lakewood, N.J., were staying with him at the time of the collapse. The Weiszes remain missing as at this time.
Chaim purchased the second-floor condo only recently, hoping that its views of the Atlantic Ocean would help him find solace after a turbulent year that saw the loss of his wife, Anna Rosenberg, a”h, to cancer, and both of his parents to COVID-19.
Chaim was a longtime Mispallel at Rabbi Weinfeld’s Shul in Flatbush.
In recent months Chaim had dedicated himself towards launching Mercaz Shalom, a young adult center for mental healing, located on the campus of Mayanei Hayeshua Hospital in Bnei Brak, Israel, in memory of his late wife.
Arrangements are being made with Hatzolah Air and family friends to have the Niftar flown back to NY tonight for a tentative Levaya on Friday.
