BDE was such an eidel Chassid

In addition to the all of the above, he was in a position to make a kiddush hashem which stood our community in good standing. While he was on the school board, he advocated for the community but by being fair minded and eidel in his approach he was able to make a kiddush hashem which is a talent and benefited the community greatly.
May his memory be a blessing for his family and his fellow chassidim.

Too much :(:(:(

Rabbi Flint was my neighbor and friend for over 30 years. He never forgot my children nor my husband or myself in shul while at the Bima and other occasions. He will be missed

Baruch Dayan Emes. Your father was a special man. Reading the brief summary of his upbringing above makes me so proud to be able to say I knew him. In more recent years we’d say hello when we saw each other in the street even though it’s been over 24 years since my family lived downstairs! Those years at 1603 Carrol Street are years I will always cherish for having had the privilege to get a close glimpse into the life of such a large, lively, beautiful family. Sending love to you. May HaShem comfort you amongst the mourners of… Read more »

I would like to add that for many years Rabbi Flint gave over the Shabbos farbrengen in English at our shul, Khal Chasidim. He will be terribly missed by the Khal Chasidim mispalilim. I had the good fortune of getting to know Reb Avraham over these past few years. He was a talmid chachom of the first order. I especially looked forward to speaking with him following maariv on Friday nights. With the shul mostly empty, he would share with me and the few others still there his thoughts on recent developments in the community and the country as a… Read more »

B”H Dear Mrs. Flint and all the Flint siblings, spouses, and grandchildren שיחיו, May Hashem comfort you among the mourners of ציון and ירושלים on the loss of Rabbi Flint ob’m. I just wanted to add too all the special comments about him, which as I read they bring back memories of my childhood on Carroll st. and the fond memories of being neighbors with such a special family. I recall the never ending stream of orchim to your home, and how Rabbi Flint would sit with them farbrenging with shift after shift. Your parents would graciously offer to take… Read more »

After years of hearing of my long lost “Flint” relative living in the Crown Heights of Brooklyn I finally got the opportunity to meet Rabbi Avraham Flint in front of 770. What an honor and delight. He welcomed me to spend a Shabbos with his family at his home. We spent hours talking and he shared how we were related. It is a memory I shall cherish from this great Chasid. May his memory be blessed and the family blessed. I trust I will have the opportunity to meet more of my “Flint” relatives soon.
