Knowing his son Dovber and many of his extended family, I can see where they get their beautiful characters from. A magnificent Mentch that will be sorely missed by thousands.

I learned in S Africa for a year and I went to see him for a procedure. That one visit remains with me 8 years later. I always had a fear of drawing blood. And I remember how relaxed he made me fell with his unbelievable sense of humor and his sensitive approach.( he even gave me a lollypop to focus on as he drew the blood). Unbelievable man and an unbelievable loss. May Hashem give the family the comfort they need to cope with their terrible loss.

He was my doctor when I was a child. A true Rofeh Yedid. Not only expert in modern medicine but homeopathy and other natural resources. Although he had many patients he was considerate of each person’s needs, a heart of gold. You just don’t find people like him these days. The only doctor I really trusted. The world has lost something special.

Doctor rodney was my doctor when I was a child…many many memories of the house calls he used to make with his black doctor’s bag…a professional doctor and a dear family friend…love and strength and comfort to the family of such a wonderful man. He will be forever remembered and spoken about in positive ways. Boruch dayan emes.

to know him was to love him
we probably don’t even begin to know what a special neshama the South African community and the world at large was blessed with
a terrible, terrible, irreplaceable loss
May Hashem grant the family strength and comfort

What a loss!

What a loss!

With the tragic passing of Dr. Rodney, ob’m, the world lost a great Doctor, an extraordinary Chosid and many of us lost a wonderful friend!

What an inspiration! We don’t find people like Dr. Rodney… I am sure you will be “a gute beter” for all of your loved ones and for all of us L’Maalah. Hamokom Yenachem Eschem Bsoch Shaar Aveilie Tzion VeYerusholayim.

A great Mentch, Ohev Yisroel, and a talmid Chochom.
Dr Rodney was our doctor before we went to Eretz Yisroel 17 years ago. He always had a kind word and a dvar torah when I went for treatment.
We have been saying tefillos for him for many years. Yhi zichro boruch.

I never met Dr. Rodney, but “knew” and admired / adored him through my brother and his family, my parents, and others who were zoche to know him…and to love him. Such a special, caring, upright and precious doctor and friend. The person above who said that everyone who knew him must be feeling a personal family loss is so correct. The world has truly lost a precious soul. Ad Mosai! My parents and I send our condolences to this special family: Hamokom Yenachem Eschem Bsoch Shaar Aveilie Tzion VYerusholayim. We need Moshiach NOW!

Dr. Rodney was more than just a doctor. He was a Mashpia and good friend. He is someone who you think about often as you always felt his love and care. The world has lost a true Chosid.
Our thoughts are with you Jenny and may Hashem bless and comfort you all.

We had known each other since 1960 when our families became good friends in Johannesburg, South Africa, and our families saw and socialized with each frequently. We knew each other at the King David Schools in Linksfield, JHB where Rodney was a exemplary student and we met again later when Rodney and his dear wife Jenny became true Chabad Chasidim. They hosted me for Shabbos when I visited SA in great style in later years and we kept in touch via Email. Even though he was ill for some time, and even made a miraculous recovery at one point and… Read more »
