TTI Students Assist With Mitzvah Burial in Corsicana, TX

TTI Students in Corsicana, TX

The call came in on Saturday night.  A Jewish man in Corsicana, TX, Lester Rappaport,  had passed away.  He had no family, and was to be cremated.  The local Dallas Chevra Kadisha had to work fast to intervene so that he would be able to receive a proper Jewish burial.  They were successful, but needed to quickly find a minyan.  Six TTI high school students, Yitzi Drebin, Shaya Katz, Yosef Yachnes, Avichayil Yachnes, Moshe Teigman and Shlomo Tanny, gave up their Sunday afternoon to make the trip to Corsicana, and ensure that a minyan was present for Mr. Rappaport’s funeral.  Yehi Zichro Baruch.
