YYK's Yahrzeit

I was browsing over at Chabad.org and I noticed that today was the Yahrzeit (death anniversary) of Rabbi Yosef Y. Kazen a.k.a. YYK. YYK, as he was known on IRC, was one of those few individuals that I met who truly understood the power of the Internet and its ability provide a Jewish lifeline to those who wouldn't otherwise have one. The few times that I chatted with him on IRC, it was also evident that he was one of those few people who was truly a genuine mentsch in every aspect of his life and his interaction with others. I am sure he is missed, but his legacy - Chabad.org, lives on and still continues to serve judaism in page-size chunks to millions of others.

May his memory be a blessing.

I remember him from the old IRC days. I respected him greatly and always enjoyed his contributions to the conversations. Yonah, great blog and cute kids!
