As a child growing up in Montreal, Mendel was the perfect role model,
He was a big learner, involved in Chasidesheh Iyonim, meshnaoys BAal Peh, and during recess you wanted to get out of the way of his “scater” throws.
Although Mendel was a few years older, he had a positive influence on me, one year on Rosh Hashana I remember him encouraging me to finish the Tehilim before The Rebbe came down.
Yosef and the rest of the family, this is crazy may Hashem be with you, for only revealed good.
We need Moshiach Now. Ad Mosai!

I am so heartbroken by this news. Goldie is one of my very dear friends and a role model of an eishes chayil. Together, they have been raising a beautiful family, and they are exemplary Chassidim of the Rebbe. May Hashem send the ultimate nechama of Moshiach right now! With love from Yerushalayim

This news is so hard to accept. Mendel is such a on the ball, alive person. He would have a story or glaich vertel to say at every sotuation. always something cooking… Such a young husband and father… Son.. brother… Brother in-law… Ad Mosai!!! Mendel would go to the Rebbe 5-6 times a year even as a father of 9. His hiskashrus and bitul to the Rebbe was on a entire different level. He used his encounters with the the many none Lubavitchers he would meet, to say a vort, give a push in Mendel’s unique stile, making the person… Read more »

He would purchase seats in 770 every year, coming in for Rosh hashona and simchas torah with his kids (and neither side live in CH…)

Just to visit the Rebbe

Oy hashem!!!!!

Mendel was on A different level. He was so down to earth, so real, and yet so strong and dedicated in his chasidishkite. His learning was brilliant yet it came out so easily. His humor and smile was something so special. His compassion was extraordinary. Mendel! We will miss you so much!

He helped numerous people (Shluchim and Anash) to purchase homes. He knew a lot about debt consolidation and credit. He would call me on occasion to see if I could help with the current case he was working on. I was always wondering why he would go out of his way to help others on such a large level when most people think primarily about themselves, He simply cared and used his talents for the good and went out of his way to help. We all have a lot to learn.

Unbelievably kind
May 9, 2022 3:10 am

Kind and compassionate and spent time even with many troubled people. He was a bar daas, a huge heart in an eidel and good way and every way of his was good. We need Moshiach in a new way and like never before. This is not ok on any level.

Memories, Bais Chana
May 9, 2022 7:33 am

Goldie,you probably don’t remember me. First I think I spoke for your women’s circle in Sacramento many years ago on Ketores. However, the strongest memory I had was at Bais Chana, Minnesota, Summer 1983. You and Sara Ciment were counselors there. I was one of the older participants, a married woman with sound advice, so you thought!. We all formed a bond, and some of our conversations were about shidduchim, dating etc. we had alot of laughs, and good times. and now this sad sad news which I received today…………..I am so so sorry, this event certainly was not apart… Read more »
