Remembering Hyman Patchin (1916-2010)

The people of Beit Aharon remember our longtime member Hyman Patchin, Olav Hashalom, known by his fellow congregants as Chaim, who passed away a year ago.  Chaim's yahrzeit is this (Wednesday evening and) Thursday (July 27-28, 26 Tammuz).  Chaim had paticipated in services at Beit Aharon for many years and would come almost every Shabbat, including his very last Shabbat, walking a mile each way, well into his 90s, even in bad weather.  He was a fixture of our congregation and we miss him.
