Victor Fineberg Obituary, Death – A Halifax businessman named Victor Fineberg, who passed away recently, was the proprietor of a “old world” delicatessen located on Agricola Street. He was 65. A note stating that Fineberg passed away on Tuesday was distributed by the Atlantic Jewish Council. It was stated that a service would be held at the cemetery on Wednesday afternoon. In 2012, he and his wife, Sybil, established the Hali Deli as a business. This restaurant has established itself as a popular destination for patrons searching for “simple food” and delectable dishes from Eastern Europe.
On the menu, some of the most common dishes include smoked meat, bagels, a hot brisket sandwich (boneless meat from cattle or calf), latkes (potato pancakes), and kasha varnishkes (bowtie noodles made with buckwheat). Also on the menu is something called chicken matzah ball soup, which is described as “Jewish penicillin cooked with an old fowl for flavor.” For those who take pleasure in the experience of dining in delicatessens, this is comfort food. “According to the website of the restaurant, “when Jewish people migrated from nation to country, many deli delicacies were invented out of necessity.” [Citation needed] Before a few decades had passed, the kitchen of a Jewish home was considered to be the heart of the home.”
Fineberg managed the establishment known as Victor’s Bar and Grill, which was located on Spring Garden Road, before he opened the Hali Deli. That company went out of business in 2011. Fineberg passed away on December 18th, the first night of Hanukkah, the Jewish Festival of Lights, which began that evening. According to an obituary that was published online, he is survived by his wife, his daughter, a granddaughter, his mother, and further relatives. His father, Elliot Fineberg, who passed away in 2018, came before Fineberg in death. The funeral will be held at the Baron de Hirsch Cemetery, which is located at 3700 Windsor Street, at two in the afternoon.
