    He will be missed

    I remember erev YK 1975 shlugging kappores in the early dawn;I was pregnant and he helped me “cope” with the three chickens that I needed to shlug. He was kind, patient and funny too; also zealous and so focused on this mitzvah-every YK since (40 years), nothing came close to the specialness of that moment with this special chassid.; BDE

    WOW……..THEY DON’T MAKE EM LIKE THIS YID ANYMORE.
    NO COMPROMISE WHEN IT CAME TO EMES!
    OUR KINDERLACH UNFORTUNATELY WILL NOT KNOW FROM THIS TYPE OF YID, ALL THE MORE REASON WE REALLY NEED MOSHIACH NOW!

    I remember him so well

    You didn’t want to mess with him – a giant of a man physically but also spiritually. He looked big and strong (as his sons) but was so gentle inward.

    When I first came to the Rebbe and did not understand Yiddish, I used to stand next to Reb Eliezer for his translations between sichos, during the nigunim. A gehoibener Yid!.

    Rabbi Zirkind was a living example of spiritual strength. He made a tremendous contribution to the olam hatachton through his sofrus and his precision in avodas Hashem. His physical stature was daunting but his personality was soft. May his wife and his children have nechama. BDE

    Such an example for all of us

    Shabbos after Shabbos at Rabbi Eliezer would dedicate time to review the Rebbe’s Sichos in english in between the Sichos at the fabrengens. Those who didn’t understand were/are forever grateful. A great dugma for all of us in so many areas

    A great talmid chochom and a man of integrity and principle with a big heart and compassion for his fellow Jew. He will be sorely missed. May he be a guteh beter for the mishpacha.

    His mother was my principal in elementary school and I will never forget that elegant sweet woman. Rabbi Zirkind was a special man who raised a special family with his wife to long life.
