ENGLEWOOD, N.J. — Helen Strassfeld of Englewood is suing her late husband's insurance company for canceling the $1 million policy following a missed $315 payment, NJ.com reports.

Rabbi Joseph Strassfeld succumbed to cancer in January at 66 years old. He founded Yeshiva Ohr Simcha of Englewood, where "he gave his heart and soul to the Jewish nation," the school's website says.​

The rabbi took out a $1 million life insurance policy with American General Life Insurance Company — the Yeshiva was the beneficiary, according to NJ.com.

His wife was named executrix of his estate following his death, but discovered the policy had been canceled due to a missed $315 payment, the article says.
