"Like He Saw The Future": Chilling Story Before He Passed

“It Was Like He Saw The Future”: Chilling Story of Corona Patient Before He Passed

Many in Israel were shocked yesterday to hear of the untimely passing of Reb Bentzion Kuperstock, famed baal chesed and father of 11.

Kuperstock was perhaps most famous for his role as the “Abba of Meron.” During the celebrations for Lag BaOmer in Meron which are attended by thousands each year, Reb Bentzion happily distributed free food to strangers. He was also the head of a Beis Yaakov seminary. Rabbi Kuperstock’s life was claimed by COVID-19 on Saturday night.

Shortly before his death, he had already begun preparations for the upcoming Lag BaOmer holiday, in case of the unlikely possibility that Jews would once again be able to pray at the kever of the Rashbi.

Loved ones recall a conversation which was somber at the time but now rings true on a different level: Overcome with emotion, Reb Bentzion proclaimed: “Either all of klal yisroel will be with Rabi Shimon Bar Yochai, or I will!”

In a tragic turn, it is Kuperstock who will be spending Lag BaOmer with the Rashbi, in the next world.

Many were struck by the particularly tragic fact that someone who was so beloved and would certainly have been escorted to his grave by large crowds under any other circumstances instead had only a minyan as per Health Ministry guidelines.

Rebbetzin Kuperstock is now left, just before the Pesach holiday, to pick up the pieces alone. With three children at home, and eight others who will be sitting shiva separately in their own homes, she is now in an extremely difficult financial situation. Donations are being urgently collected to help the Kuperstock family survive this painful period.

Happening Now: Levaya For Father of 11 Lost to COVID-19

Reb Bentzion Kuperstock, Jerusalem father of 11, was the 46th person in Israel to pass away due to COVID-19 last night. Kuperstock had gone to the hospital Wednesday, where his test for the virus came back negative. He returned home, and collapsed on Saturday night. Responders were unable to resuscitate him.

Kuperstock was very well-known for his acts of chesed, including most notably his tradition of feeding free breakfast to thousands of people the morning of Lag BaOmer in Meron. This, together with other similar acts, earned him the nickname ‘The Abba of Meron.’ Reb Bentzion was also the head of a Beis Yaakov seminary, Beis Yaakov HaYashan.

A levaya that in any other circumstances would have garnered huge crowds of those wishing to mourn this giant in chesed took place today with a sparse minyan, standing at reasonable distances from each other as per Ministry of Health guidelines. Kuperstock’s widow sat by the side of the procession with a few of her children, audibly crying out into the open air. Her cries brought grief to the hearts of all who heard her.

Funds are being urgently raised for Mrs. Kuperstock, who now must someone accomplish the superhuman feat of making Pesach with three children at home after the horrific and untimely passing of her husband. Shiva calls will be accepted over the phone only. The family are now left in dire need, and any help is crucially important during this painful time.
