It is with great sadness that Matzav.comreports the petira of R’ Yehoshua Ben Paz, a yungerman who was pulled out of the waters in Tel Aviv last night.

ZAKA divers were called to the beach last night after a man entered the waters with a friend and disappeared into the surf. ZAKA was later able to recover the body of R’ Yehoshua Ben Paz, a 24-year-old yungerman from the Givat Shaul neighborhood of Yerushalayim.

The Levaya of R’ Yehoshua Ben-Paz who drowned in the Tel Aviv beach last night, will leave from his parents’ home at the Assam complex in Bnei Brak at 3:00 PM, and will continue front there to Yerushalayim, where he will be buried on Har Hamenuchos.

R’ Ben-Paz leaves behind a wife and two young children.
