Funeral of Professor Liviu Librescu in Brooklyn NY

Professor Liviu Librescu was killed in the Virginia Tech shooting.
He saved some of his students by barricading the door.

The Levaya of Professor Liviu Librescu A”H took place on Wednesday afternoon, at Shomrei Hachomos Chapels in Brooklyn a few moments after Mrs. Librescu arrived from Eretz Yisroel. She arrived in a vehicle from the Israeli Embassy, and was quickly ushered inside the Chapels.

In attendance was NYC Councilman Simcha Felder, Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz, and representatives of the Mayor’s office. NY State Assemblyman Dov Hikind delivered a very moving Hesped to the crowd. Rabbi Edgar Gluck then thanked all the public officials who worked together to speed the Levaya process, and recited Keil Maley. The crowd was then Melava the Niftar a bit, Kaddish was recited by an attendee, and they left for Kennedy airport.

May we never hear of such Tzaros again, and may we all use our energy which was used to expedite this Levaya - for happier occasions.
