He was a mashpia to a huge swath of Anash. I would venture to say , that to a certain age group, he was THE de facto mashpia in Crown Heights. He was our friend, our confidant, our מורה דרך. The loss is בלתי נסבל.

Truly a horrible los & tragedy. When I first moved to Crown Heights, he lived next door to me & would have me over for shabbos. G-D, ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!! NO MORE TZURIS, PAIN & SUFFERING, MOSHIACH TODAY!!!!!

A giant of a man, a true chossid in every sense of the word. A humble and righteous Yid whose loss will be felt throughout the world, he helped so many and literally thousands will remember him fondly. May his neshama have an aliyah and may he be reunited with Rashi in Gan Eden. Moshiach now!

He was a teacher in beis rivka too

He was something else
December 13, 2020 10:21 am

When we wanted to go on shluchus he helped us out tremendously and didn’t even know us. He believed in us. He was a very wise man and his children are lucky to have had him as a father. He was full of love and devotion to all of them. He will be missed greatly!

A very special person
Him & his wife had a tremendous impact on me…

Zu Torah V’zu schara???
Aibershter, You can make it better. Send Moshiach NOW.
Rabbi Lieberman, You were always so good at persuading those who needed clearheaded guidance, to do what’s right. As you stand before the kesay hakovod, PLEASE use your power of persuasion and tell the Ribono Shel Olom to send Moshiach NOW. Immediately! Your family needs you back. The community needs you back!

Very hard to digest this news

BDE We have no words. Such a wonderful man. He we and his wife, Sara, went out of their way for us. May Hashem comfort his wife and children in Zion. May we have the ultimate redemption now

What a loss
December 13, 2020 2:13 pm

Rabbi and Sarah – a beautiful couple who showed us all how to live a life that makes the Rebbe proud.

December 13, 2020 2:44 pm

Hashem please open up the doors!!!! We need Moshiach!!!!! Until when? As mosai! May we see only revealed good!!

Dear Morah Lieberman,

You taught me in seminary so many, many moons ago. I learned so much from you, not only from your amazingly vast knowledge and impeccable scholarship, which inspired me greatly, but from who you were, and how you were. You modeled humility, brilliance, midos tovos, practicality, chasidishkeit, graciousness, hospitality, class…you taught me to aspire higher.

I am so very, very saddened to hear of this impossible loss. May Hashem protect you and comfort you and your beautiful family. Ma Nomar, Ma Nidaber.

Wow! Moshiach Now!! How will this world continue without Chaim Meir z”l? The gifts of life that he and Sara have give our family are never ending.Our family exists because of them. So much love and support over the years in great times and in not so great times, always available and “there” for us. I hope in some small way we have given you Nachus.

May Hashem comfort the family amongst all the mourners of Tzion and yerushalayim and may we merit to see Moshiach NOW.

How true, HOW TRUE the above testaments are. In case you haven’t noticed, in this terrible tekufeh, it’s been the best of the best, the cream of the crop. This is a tragedy of epic proportions. No words, no accolades will do these people justice. Pages can be filled with his praises.
May we hear only good besuros. Amen!

Rabbi Lieberman always believed in me and always pushed me (in a positive way) to be a better Jew and a better person. When he saw a way I could improve myself, he would tell me and I would always know he said it because he cared and because he believed in my potential. I loved him like he was my own father. No one else has given me the kind of attention and dedication that he did, and I will have knots in my stomach for the rest of my life from the pain of dealing with this horrible… Read more »

Just a random person who is broken

I had the privilege of meeting r Lieberman zatzal just one time but I had the privilege of talking to him many times recently. He had heard that I was having an issue with something and reached out to me and wouldn’t let go even though I gave him a very hard time. I only met him once but the void that I feel in my heart words cannot explain. I cannot begin to imagine the pain that those that were privileged to be close to him , I am deeply saddened for your loss as well as the hole… Read more »
