    What a special person Mendel was.
    May his family have only only simchas.

    Mendel A”H was unique. You could see what a sincerely gutteh neshama he had, there is nothing he wouldn’t do for another Yid. I am 100% certain there are many untold things he did, quietly & anonymously, things we will never know about.

    To Toby & your beautiful family: Carry on in the way Mendel guided you all. You are his most treasured yerusha. He is deeply, deeply missed by us all.

    This article is so beautiful and only a tiny piece of the amazing story of Mendel and Toby Brikman and their incredible family, ka”h that they built together with such love and joy and positive energy. Mendel is still with us, with his command to ‘smile!’ and chazak! His last words to me will always stay with me, as will his incredible will to live each moment to its fullest. Toby – you are more strong, powerful and positive than it’s possible to believe. Hashem should bentch you and your children with only good, open and revealed brochos until the… Read more »
