It is with great sadness that I inform the Jewish Records Indexing -
Poland family of the loss of Hillel Lipsius, dear father of JRI-Poland
board member and Shtetl CO-OP Coordinator, Hadassah Lipsius.
After a long and difficult battle, Hillel Lipsius passed away on
Shabbat, 9th March / 25th Adar.
Hillel Lipsius was as enthusiastic supporter of Hadassah's
involvement in and leadership role in JRI-Poland. He and his
wife traveled to Poland with Hadassah and pursued their own
interest in genealogy, for example by attending the Jewish
genealogical conference when it was held in New York in 1999.
Donations in his memory may be made to:
American Friends of Lomza Yeshiva-Petah Tikvah
37 Parkville Avenue
Brooklyn, NY 11230
fax: 718- 972-4294
Acknowledgement of the donation can be sent to:
(The Lomza Yeshiva has her address)
May his memory be for a blessing.
May Hadassah and her family
be consoled among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.
