A very special man
June 7, 2022 7:45 pm

Chaim was a very special man always with a smile. He did so much quietly for the greater Miami community, from driving his pickup to the farms to picking up fresh produce and bread from the bakeries and discreetly leaving boxes by people’s doors.

I’m sure his neshama is having the highest of aliyot.

He made a difference wherever he lived. Such a special man! When he moved from Miami, it took at least 4 people to fill his shoes and keep up all the programs he singlehandedly spearheaded. And always with a smile. He is surely seated by Hashem’s throne.

Agreed!!

Chaim was a true Chasid in extending himself beyond the call of duty. May his Neshama knock on Rebbe’s door and bring Mashiach now.

He was very special
