Hyman Patchin (1916-2010)

The people of Beit Aharon mourn the passing of out longtime member Hyman Patchin, known by his fellow congregants as Chaim.  Chaim had been participating in services at Beit Aharon for many years and came almost every Shabbat, including his very last Shabbat.  Baruch Hashem for his having been blessed with relatively good health until the end, walking a mile to shul and back every Shabbat, well into his 90's, even in bad weather.

Chaim passed away on Thursday, July 8 (26 Tammuz), apparently in his sleep and of natural causes.  He was 94 years old.
