Is this for real?

Every time I think of his passing, it feels so unreal, I almost have to pinch myself, and tell myself this isn’t a dream, He was the highlight at every event I attended, be it the cheder dinner (see video), or a public menorah lighting, and the list is endless, It doesn’t feel real, he embodied life in every way!!!!!!!!!Hashem we are aching, ouch!!!i agree with another comment I read in a different posting, that he managed to be a head shliach, but be fully involved in anash and attend simchas, etc…….how was he able to be in all these… Read more »

As my first experince as madrich, I confess that I became very impressed the way Rabbi Moskovitch worked with the kids. All the nuce himns I know in english I learned with him during the time we all were in the bus on the way to our daily activities. Its hard to believe that is gone. May his memory be blessed and we all merit the speedily revelation of Moshiach Teikef UMiad Mamesh!

I was there and the shock and horror is felt so strongly. to think of the family and chicago Jewry without him is simply crazy. Every chabad illinois event’s highlight is Rabbi Moskowitz’s powerful and inspiring speech.
This must be a wake up call for all of us lubavitchers- we need to come together with each other beAchdus and respect and work together to bring Moshiach. He’s watching from above hoping we will take action for moshiach…

I look forward to hearing another one of his speeches in Yerushalayim.

These pictures do not suffice the intense pain and sense of outcry that was felt at this levaya. The pain was felt by all those present. The cries on Mrs. Moscowitzes face and her daughters when they walked in was one that has the whole room in tears. Different people from different walks of life came together, to pay tribute to the man who made the Chicago community what it is today. There are simply no words to express the sorrow the family and community are feeling at this time. May his holy neshama rest in peace, and may we… Read more »

Growing up in Chicago I saw him all throughout the years. I never saw his efforts in person being that I was in cheder, mesivta etc. However, to see him request to be buried where his shlichus is speaks A LOT about his level of self sacrifice for his shlichus. That was very, very heartwarming and impressive. His neshama should have an aliya and he should be a gutta beter for his family and the Chicago Chabad community.

A great man!

I was there

These pictures can’t convey the gebrocht olam, the tears, the solemnity, the hearts of the lives he touched, the pain of the oldest son, the expression of his parents the depth of the loss, or that this was his final ride along Devon Avenue.
Condolences to the family and to the community,

thanks!
