Leiby Kletzky’s Parents Encourage Acts of LovingKindness

Rabbi Nachman and Itta Kletzky, the parents of Leiby Kletzky, released their first public statement yesterday on Chabad.org.  The Kletzkys thank all the friends, neighbors, volunteers, local and federal agents, and others who provided help, prayers, and support during a time of tragedy.

In addition, the Kletzkys exhort and encourage others to preserve their son’s memory in four ways (excerpts below):

Spread acts of lovingkindness. Let us perpetuate the feeling of collective responsibility and love expressed during the search for Leiby. An additional act of kindness toward your neighbor, or to those less fortunate than you, can go a long, long way toward perfecting our world.

Always give gratitude. In Leiby’s memory, when you wake up each morning take a few moments to pray and reflect and thank G‑d for giving us life.

Remember to light a candle. On Friday evening, please give a few coins to charity and light the candles before sunset with our beloved Leiby in mind.

Participate in a memorial fund. Help people in dire need (www.leibykletzkymemorialfund.com), to channel the lovingkindness shown to us and our dear Leiby toward many, many others in need.

Read the complete statement on Chabad.org.
