      Edward Orshan, 87, of Los Angeles

Deaths in the JooTube family (not pictured) have curtailed our publishing on this website over the past 12 months. We have concentrated on Facebook and YouTube, where we have been subjected to censorship,so we will be resuming publishing on the website and other social-media networks (which we will indicate here).  Thank you for your patience in the delay of publishing some 2019 and 2020 anticipated stories this year.

"Grateful" Edward Orshan, 87, who earned degrees from Princeton and Harvard, edited film and television in New York, Israel ("Michael SheLi"/ "My Michael"), and Hollywood, was a beloved member of The Happy (Carlebach) Minyan of Los Angeles.

Friends and family gathered on Tuesday, January 26th to celebrate his life with eulogies and prayer. Ed's son Gabriel attended, others participated via Zoom - which will be linked here soon. Ed passed away peacefully in his sleep on the same Shabbos (10th Shevat) as Larry King. That calendar day is also the yahrzeit of the
Friediker Rebbe (Yosef Yitzchak Schneerson), and Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon.

The funeral was facilitated by Mordechai Freeman, who led the team assisting Ed's healthcare over the past few years.

Rabbi Yonah Bookstein officiated. Chazan Yehuda ("Moshav Band") Solomon led El Male Rachamim and other prayers and chantings.

Eulogists included Geborah Goldberger, Jonathan Boyer, David Sacks, Jeff Rohatiner, Zalman Solomon, and bereaved son Gabriel. Ed is also survived by his former-wife, Nan, and sons Nathaniel and Itai (in Israel) who watched the funeral via Zoom.

This brief scene was filmed in the Figaro Cafe on the corner of Bleecker and MacDougal Streets.
