Heart breaking

He always spent his devoted time to speak with his campers. My son was his camper at CHAYOLEI and my son spoke to him almost every day throughout this whole year.
We love you Meir.

When I was in Toronto Meir was one of the few bochurim who came to learn with me and he always tried his best to spark up a positive conversation. Here in Crown Heights he would still remember me and would ask to learn and I regret not making the time for it. He was incredibly nice and a warm sweet person. Condolences to his friends and family.

Meir was the man
March 7, 2022 10:01 pm

Meir was one of the most positive people I know. I was lucky enough to play keyboard at a simchas beis hashoeiva here in Toronto that he arranged.

He always had a smile and was up to doing something good very good to be around full of the joy of life, he randomly once called me recently about project likutey sichos he volenterrd to call sign ups and see where they are at and encourage them to continue,use to always see him around in 770 he will be truly missed, we need moshiach now!

The most alive person id ever met in my life
March 7, 2022 10:46 pm

Now he’s gone . He filled up all those years to the fullest

March 7, 2022 10:47 pm

I was in class with Meir in Mesivta, he used to run the Farbrengan fund and he would always make sure their was food and drinks to put out. He Constantly was fundraising money, and many times even sponsor it out of his own pocket. Their are few that actually gave all their time energy to helping other people like Meir did. I pray for him and his family.

March 7, 2022 10:49 pm

Meir was a real friend, and it’s so painful to lose a true and devoted shliach of the rebbe
You will be forever in our hearts ♥️.

Soo sad – maybe the family only know good news and brochos.

So sorry for such a loss! Boruch Dayan HaEmes!

No words
March 7, 2022 11:12 pm

There are absolutely no words, short or long, simple nor profound, that can convey this heartrending tragedy.

What a beautiful lively soul. What a bright light, snuffed out so abruptly.

We shall never forget you.

From a friend
March 8, 2022 12:03 am

First thing that comes to mind when hearing his name is his smile. I legitimately don’t remember a time that he was mad or angry. Always gave his heart and soul to the rebbes initiatives, and was ultimately taken from us while doing the rebbes Shluchis. BDE.

To my dear friend Meir
March 8, 2022 12:33 am

BDH. We became friends a few years ago. The second time that I saw you, was on Sukkot and you asked me to come with you on Miftsoyim, and encourage people to shake the lulav and etrog. Being in your presence made me try harder to encourage people to do a mitzvah, everything about you made me remind myself how much I need to work on myself. The last time I spoke with you was last week, you were telling me how amazing the yeshiva in Ohio is, and what you are doing to help them. I really love you… Read more »

Hashem takes the best.
March 8, 2022 12:40 am

Sadly Hashem chooses the best of neshamas, to be with him. We have to to tshuvah, meir was a Tzadik! AND HASHEM TOOK HIM! we have to do are best to fix what’s broken, and be like Meir. Meir I love you. ❤

March 8, 2022 1:16 am

He was always the fundraiser, farbrengen-arranger, and Mikva-Builder. A truly happy, and generous person, and he would move mountains for the Rebbe.
Here’s a photo of his from just a week ago at Cteen Shabbaton:

Taken to early
March 8, 2022 1:19 am

Meir was such a good young man. He was always so happy and always had time to talk to me no matter what the circumstances were. When he walked into the room you were able to feel his presence. His smile would make everyone smile. Such a good person taken at such a young age. He fulfilled his mission plus many more in this world. Hashem whyyyyyy?????? Such a good person I have tears in my eyes right now. It’s so hard to find people that are as genuine, Caring and as loving as he is. Meir you will not… Read more »

Meir - Shone light
March 8, 2022 1:28 am

Meir was a shining light, in all aspects of his life. In his bein Odom lamakom, his intrapersonal relationships – bein Odom lachavairoi, his connection to the Rebbe and his Koch in the Rebbe’s inyanim. Two specific points in recent years, once could say he really excelled in, were the inyan of going hakhola kehilos every shabbos, whether in Toronto or crown heights, no matter the distance or the weather (esp. those snowy Toronto shabosos), Meir made sure to go on hakholas kehilos, to speak, farbreng and inspire yidden. Another point was his Koch that bochurim should go to mikva… Read more »

Meir, I hardly got a chance to know you, but from the short time I knew you from when you introduced yourself to me just a few weeks ago whule making coffee together before davening, seeing the way you acted talked and conducted yourself I saw only true chassidishkeit and desire to do what’s right and help others. You were a walking role model of a bochur.
I can’t believe you’re no longer here.
I’ll try to learn from you and do what you would do.

March 8, 2022 9:22 am

AD MOSAI!!! Just a few weeks ago my son who is in Shiur Aleph in Cincinnati told me about a bochur who was on shlichus there but came to learn for a few hours a day. “Ma, when he asks you how are you, it is because he really wants to know.” He was so caring. He did not learn with my son, but took an interest in him. Meir, you were so special! Storm the heavens,, dont take no for an answer!!! We need you and all our loved ones back! Moshiach NOW!

thinking of you, meir
March 8, 2022 9:27 am

meir and i didn’t know each other that well, but a couple of years ago, he was the reason i had an enjoyable summer at camp. wish we could’ve spent more time together. thank you meir.

goodbye, meir

March 8, 2022 11:29 am

Meir was very involved in the organization of Project Likkutei Sichos

March 8, 2022 1:11 pm

Hashem why is such a young person being taken away?it’s so hard to see the good in this but their should be only good news and lead us to moshiach now

One of a kind
March 8, 2022 2:59 pm

Meir was one special boy, not one that are easy to find. What stuck out to me so much was his smile, he was happy and he was always there to make others happy too, ready to be there for them and help them. His middos too really stood out, he was a real mentch. He was just there to continue from one project to the next, he had crazy ideas and crazy projects that only one with such talent can do. His songs he composed from back in the years I’ll never forget! They were filled with so much… Read more »

March 8, 2022 8:05 pm

Speaking to Meir just days ago, my brain cannot process what happened. The thought that Meir is no longer with us just doesn’t make any sense. Meir was the warmest, most caring human I have met in my life. Meir touched the soul of every person he came in contact with – his joy and passion for living life to the fullest inspired those around him. His death leaves a gaping hole in the heats of countless who call him a friend or mentor. The world is not the same without you Meir. You will be most sorely missed –… Read more »

Meir was a good bouchur
March 8, 2022 8:54 pm

My son knew meir from camp very big
Tragedy he was a good bouchur

Meir was the best counselor
March 8, 2022 9:54 pm

I don’t know what to write 😭. Meir cared for everyone. he had a חברותא with me and a bunkmate every Wednesday and he was planning to come this Shabbos
We miss you already MOSHIACH NOW AD MOSAI!

BDE what a tragedy....Moshiach now!!
March 9, 2022 1:53 am

My son was very close to him, he learned with him often and respected him so much. What a terrible loss…
what an amazing person he was, to have affected so many lives so profoundly. I never met him but have been crying all day. Hashem, please have rachmonus on us and bring Moshiach now. Please!!
