Rabbi Boruch B. Bender, 29


Five years ago, a member of the Far Rockaway Jewish community developed a minor infection. Her condition worsened in a nearby hospital. Rabbi Boruch Bender, a Far Rockaway resident who was teaching in a Brooklyn yeshiva and had earlier considered becoming a physician, used his contacts to arrange a transfer to a hospital in Manhattan.

The patient had surgery; it came too late; she died a few days later.
