Moshe Moskowitz, a Holocaust survivor who leaves a generation of descendents, passed away on April 19.

He was born in Hungary in May 1924 to a large family, many who perished during the years of World War II and the Holocaust.

Moskowitz survived a number of different concentration camps, eventually making his way to the United States, where he married and re-established his life in the Chassidic community of Borough Park in Brooklyn, N.Y.

His vocation was in New York’s thriving garment industry, where he worked until his retirement.

Moskowitz could frequently be found praying and studying at his local Satmar shul.

For years, he distributed kosher food, particularly for Shabbat, to the infirmed as part of a food bank. Even in his old age, Moskowitz used to visit the nearby Borough Park Centre to visit and encourage the elderly.

He is survived by four children, and numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
