Sorry to see his life came to an end so soon. He will be missed by all his children and many many grandchildren and great grandchildren whom ive also have the priveledge to know several of them.

A special artist! He merited a blessing and support of the Rebbe MHM, his work reflecting the the body and soul of Judaism like no other. I will always be inspired by his pieces. Thank you!

What a huge loss 💔

Baruch Nachshon and his righteous wife used to host Seminary girls for Shabbos in their house in Chevron. I was fortunate to spend an incredible Shabbos there, an inspiring experience that lasts decades later. May Hashem comfort as only He can, and we should be reunited with all our departed loved ones immediately!

So saddened

Over the years I have had a special relationship with both Baruch and Sarah. We met in the 1980’s and in the merit of Sarah, my husband’s a”h and my life was saved in Chevron by a miracle. We then invited them to Crown Heights and they stayed in our home. They are both very special people and have much mesirus nefesh. I regret that since making Aliyah this July, I was unable contact them. May Hashem comfort this special family.

I heard this story in the name of Yigal Klein, a tour guide who lived in Kiryat Arba:  After years of urging by Yigal Klein, Baruch Nachshon grudgingly agreed to visit the underwater fish observatory in Sharm A-Sheikh.  He really wasn’t too interested.

Rebbe's keen eye

You may think the Rebbe just ‘strolled’ Nachshon’s exibit, but in fact the Rebbe’s keen eye notice immediately a ‘mistake’ in one of the painting and asked:
“Why this hand with a finger pointed upwards has 6 fingers?”
