Three days after Tisha b’Av, 12 Av, is our brother Dr. Heshy Rosenbaum’s 46th yahrtzeit. Heshy, z”l, a resident in pediatrics, was a very gentle person, super smart and loved to play ball. He was the pride of our family, becoming a doctor. He was always careful to be mekadesh shem Shamayim through his actions and behavior. For many of his non-Jewish classmates in medical school, he was the first Orthodox Jew they knew. He was the first intern/resident to wear a yarmulke in New York Hospital, where he did his internship and residency. He did everything according to Halacha, asking shaylos if he had any doubts. He set a wonderful example for the frum medical students who came after him. On that fateful day, he was riding his bike without a helmet on the way to shul to daven Shacharit when he was hit by a bus. We still miss him. Yehi zichro baruch. In his memory, our family wishes to remind everyone, young and old, please wear a helmet when riding a bike or scooter. The life you save may be your own!
