    Some amazing things he told our class when he was teaching. He was in Soviet prison for a full year and in work camp for 5 or 6 (don’t recall) years. During those years he kept Pesach by exchanging bread for sugar for many weeks, with other inmates, so that on Pesach he could survive on sucking sugar. This also means that he had to keep the calendar in his mind. Even while in the prison cell, he lit candles for Chanuka. Because there was a viewing hole through the door for the guards, he would do it against the… Read more »

    A very special man! Growing up in London we looked up to him as a chasidisher Yid, a lamdan, and a very warm and kind person. Yet at the same time he knew how to navigate the real world. He also did everything with a touch of humor; every Shabbos Mevorchim he would sit in his place at Shul and say the entire Tehilim out loud, and Baal Peah! Yet without a touch of conceit. We also would love to go to him to change British Pounds into US dollars whenever we would be traveling to visit the Rebbe. Not… Read more »

    Reb Moshe was the crown of the Lubavitcher community in Stamford Hill. A modest self-effacing man – with enormous breadth of knowledge and learning and a wonderful sense of humour. An ish chesed- and he has wonderful children and grandchildren.

    Continuing no 2 The few years of teaching he did in London remains ingrained in the life of his students( who still stay connected because of the beatifull relationship we had with Reb Moishe, the only teacher called by his first name like the old fasioned Cheder) and gave them the foundation for life being not only a teacher but a living example of the older generation.
    We are indebted to him for life!

    wow im so shocked. was such a kind and gentle man. I have such wonderful childhood memories with him

    Some memories

    Some memories

    He knew the whole Sefer Tehilim by heart, as kids we used to ask him any Pasuk in Tehilim and he would complete it. One lesson, will always be ingrained. As a student of his class, I once complained that some students were disturbing me and that I couldn’t concentrate. He then told me very frankly. “When I was in Russia, I couldn’t say, Russia leave and I stay. I needed to pick myself up and remove myself”. This lesson will always remain,, when one finds himself in a situation that you can not tolerate for any reason, don’t complain.… Read more »

    Used to go to him to change my money. Always sent warm regards to my father and made me feel at ease even as a young girl coming with not so much money.

    R’ Moshe, Our Malamed All the comments in item 2 above are clear in my mind B”H as if the were just told. Just to add to this, our best days in Oholei Torah were in the open space at Number 48 F R, this is where all these fascinating stories were told to us. We used to learn around the table in Good old Russian style with one or two seforim, That when i l was taught to read upside down. R’ Moshe gave us the experience of how it was in Russia, with a mixed age class. Shloimie
