The tragic death of Reb Menachem Mendel Braun, Z”L, a beloved member of the Baltimore Jewish community who perished in a boating accident, has left the community in a state of profound shock.

His parents, Rabbi and Mrs. Avraham and Mirel Braun of Monsey, adored him. He was the devoted husband of Mrs. Chaya Braun.

Previously, Rabbi Avraham Braun was the Menahel of Ohr Someach of Monsey. On Sunday afternoon, the Levaya took place at Sol Levinson in Baltimore. It was followed by a levaya at Yeshiva of South Monsey in Monsey and a kevurah at Monsey Beis HaChaim on Brick Church Road.

In addition to dedicating his life to helping at-risk youth, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Braun had a profoundly positive impact on many other Jews who were struggling with life’s difficulties.

He was renowned for his constant accessibility and willingness to lend a sympathetic ear to anyone in need.

His involvement extended to various shuls in Baltimore, where his encouraging words and warm smile left a lasting impression on everyone he came into contact with.

During the levaya, Rabbi Avraham Braun said that whenever someone came to him to talk about difficulties they were having with their own children, he always pointed them in the direction of his son, Rabbi Menachem.

This was due to Rabbi Menachem’s well-deserved reputation as a pro at handling such circumstances. Rabbi Menachem had successfully addressed the issues at hand, according to Rabbi Avraham, who revealed that he frequently got positive feedback from the parents.

The Braun family is requesting that anyone with cherished memories or anecdotes of Reb Menachem Z”L email them to them at in the wake of this tragic event.
