Bnos Menachem Junior High school in Crown Heights was renamed the Reuven Tatarka Junior High during a special gathering on Tuesday, 28 Shvat.
School director Rabbi Motty Gurary gave a heartfelt tribute to a dear friend, Mr. Ronnie Tatarka, who passed away at the age of 58 and was a staunch chossid and passionate about charitable causes, including Bnos Menachem.
A beautiful plaque was unveiled by school administrator Rabbi Zalman Wilhelm. English Elementary Principal Mrs. Zahava Slae led the recitation of Tehillim.
The students followed with their daily mincha and shortly after, the plaque was secured into place. The students were visibly moved by this tremendous privilege to have the name of Reuven Yosef ben Avrohom affixed to their Junior High and understood the responsibility that is associated with it.
