(lubavitch.com) Chabad-Lubavitch emissaries mourn the sudden death Saturday, of 9-year old Levi Yitzchok Wolowik, of Cedarhurst, NY.
Levi was the son of Rabbi Zalman and Chanie Wolowik, directors of Chabad of the Five Towns area. A healthy boy, Levi went to sleep as normal Friday night, but was unresponsive when his mother tried waking him up Shabbat morning.
The funeral will begin Sunday at 1:00, at Shomrei Adas Chapels in Brooklyn, and will pass by Lubavitch Headquarters at 1:30. At 2:30, the procession will pass by Chabad in Cedarhurst, at 74 Maple Avenue, and will then proceed to the Lubavitch section of the Old Montefiore Cemetery in Queens, where Levi will be laid to rest.
Levi Wolowik was the grandson of Rabbi Moshe Kotlarsky, Vice Chairman of the Lubavitch educational division.
As per the wishes of Rabbi and Mrs. Wolowik, the Chabad of Five Towns 14th Annual Dinner, planned for tonight, March 1, at the Sephardic Temple, will proceed on schedule. The Wolowiks will not be there, but have asked the community for its full participation.
