Michael Simanowitz Frum Queens Assemblyman Dies on Shabbos


NYS Assemblyman Michael Simanowitz of Queens. He was approximately 45-years-old and had been battling an illness for a few years.
He was an Assemblyman since 2011.
Michael grew up in the Forest Hills section of Queens, and as a child, studied at Yeshiva Tiferes Moshe.
He served as a tremendous voice for the Jewish community, and his passing is a terrible loss for our community and for the State of New York.
NY State Assemblyman Dov Hikind released the following statement to YWN:
“I’m still in shock learning this terribly sad news just after Shabbos,” said Hikind. “Michael was a friend and an outstanding colleague; a proud Jew who loved his family, loved his community, and loved the Jewish people. He was as good as G-d makes people, a star, a real mensch. I will miss him very much. May his family be comforted with the other mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.”
The Levaya is scheduled for Sunday at 12:00PM at the Schwartz Brothers Funeral Chapels in Queens.
