A neighbor suggested that one or more trees be planted in Prospect Park to memorialize the life of Leiby Kletzky. This plan has been approved by the Prospect Park Alliance. Below is the information on how you can participate in this effort.
from Jody Alperin
I have spoke with Phyllis Sears at Prospect Park and she has set it up so that people can contribute directly to the tree fund for Leiby Kletzky. I will post the information below but there are three ways to give--online, check in the mail or credit card over the phone. Just be sure to make note that you are donating to the "Tree Fund for Leiby Kletzky" either in the memo line of your check, to the person on the phone or in the comments section of the online giving page. I will keep in touch with Phyllis to see how much we raise so we know what we are able to plant. The park will give us a certificate we can give to the family and we can also hold a planting ceremony. We can certainly reach out to the family when the time comes for a ceremony and invite them to attend.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions and please pass on this information to anyone else who might like to contribute but might not be on the list serve. 
Thanks so much,
Jody Alperin
