Mr. Dovid Beenstock, a member of the Chabad community in Manchester, UK, passed away on Tuesday, 20 Tammuz, 5782 after a short illness.
He was 64.
Dovid grew up in Manchester where he became Lubavitch as a teenager. After studying in Kfar Chabad, he moved to Crown Heights and learned the trade of engraving. Dovid married his wife, Mindy Smoller, and returned to Manchester to establish his engraving business. He served the engraving needs for Shuls and Mosdos all over the UK for many years. In addition, Dovid served the engraving needs of the Kotel.
Dovid was an active member of the Anash community of Manchester. He had a chayus for attending shiurim and farbrengens, and maintained daily learning chavrusas. Despite his illness, he continued to go to shul and upkept his learning schedule. Less than two weeks before his passing, Dovid spent the entire Shabbos day at a Gimmel Taamuz Farbrengen. His chayus for life and sense of humor will be sorely missed.
He is survived by his wife Mindy and children; Motti (Manchester, UK) Yossi (NY), Rochel Gordon (Tasmania, Australia) Devorah (NY), Yisroel (NY), Chava Lewin (Manchester, UK), Menachem Mendel, Sara and Nesanel (Manchester, UK) and many grandchildren.
