    Very kind people. When they lived in the house they always kept the sidewalk free of debris and snow. In shamayim, the Rabbi is surely clearing paths for the Geulah.

    The Blizinski's are wonderful people

    Rabbi Blizinsky was my Gemorrah Rebbe in Boston Lubavitch Yeshiva 50 years ago. He explained the Gemorrah well.
    Whenever I visited Crown Heights and bumped into him he was very friendly. He also attended my wedding in Crown Heights 40 years ago.

    While your post is warming, and possibly especially so to is family, unlike what you wrote (it’s never too late), it IS too late to thank HIM, so perhaps (if you did not thank him in a way you felt fully enough), a lesson could be that when one CAN thank someone and wants to, better to do so then and not wait until it is too late.

    Rabbi Blizinsky was my Rebbi in Boston around 57 years ago.
    He was always very nice to me. He was a fine role model. He will be missed.

    R’Blizinsky was very involved with his son-in-law R’Yosef Carlebach as he was establishing the Chabad House at Rutgers. He was also an ehrlich yid.
