Many years ago I called him to help arrange a levaya of any old Jewish woman who lived in Crown Heights without any Jewish family. He paid for it and helped make the arrangements together with Rabbi Lieder ע״ה, another צדיק.

A highlight of his year was attending, as our guest, the banquet of the Kinus Hashluchim, in recognition for all he did for the shluchim all year round & for his help in the technical aspects of each years Banquet.

A huge loss for all of Am Yisroel and for the whole world. May Hashem grant his family strength and comfort and may he bang down the gates of golus now. Ad mosai? Ad mosai? Ad mosai?
