Reuvaine Woonteiler and his wonderful family were our friends and neighbors at 1703 Union Street for at least 30 years.
We share a lot of happy memories.

What a beautiful yid

Thank you is not enough

for this last project that he initiated i.e. the Kollel. This gives our seniors chayas and simcha especially those who otherwise are not working and would be sitting home all day.
I am sad that we can not thank him for this project but I hope his family knows how much this was/is appreciated.
He will be sorely missed:(

Reuven was a kind man who always smiled despite his own pain. He made life light and bright. He will be sorely missed 💔💔

Bde. Condolences to the entire Woontieler family. He was my Rabbi I met in Yeshiva Rtzad. What a beautiful man your husband and father was. Always smiling. Always helping. Always giving whatever he had to whomever needed anything. You gave to me and my family. He helped me get a scholarship into camp. He brought me closer to Yidushkeit. I remember his silliness and his seriousness about his love of Torah. I remember his kindness. May his memory be a blessing
