Meir Likhovetski, a bochur from Toronto who was working on Shlichus for a Chabad Center this year in Mason, Ohio, passed away on Monday, 4 Adar II, 5782.
He was 19 and passed away after a tragic car accident.
Meir worked on CTeen programming for a Shliach in Ohio and learned each morning in the Cincinnati Yeshiva.
He was a bochur who displayed leadership qualities, and was devoted to working on the Rebbe’s inyanim, his friends said.
He was active in projects like Kovetz Haoros and the Igros Kodesh app, making it easier and more accessible to learn the Rebbe’s Torah.
He was also a devoted counselor, during his time in Yeshiva in Crown Heights he kept in touch with his former campers, learned with some of them every night, and spoke to them for hours. The campers looked up to him and considered him their mentor in every way.
Meir took the lead on a project started a few months ago, in making the Likkutei Sichos very accessible and digitizing it so that all the haoros are available online.
His friends hope to continue this project and bring it to fruition in his memory, they said.
“He gave his leiv and nefesh, and every dime to his name to the Rebbe’s inyanim,” his friends said.
He is survived by his parents, R’ Mordechai and Olga Likhovetski of Toronto, and siblings.
Baruch Dayan Ha’emes.
