    Saw him every day in 770, 6:30am learning chassidus. May he continue to be a living example.

    Just look at his beautiful smiling face!!

    ….and see who he was !! The real deal – an emesdik Chasid- in love with his Rebbe, his family and his community!
    He was such a inspiration to have known!

    Lived his entire life like a bochur who was inspired and excited about chassidus, mivtzoyim and everything the Rebbe wanted. He never gave of any air of being “too old” or “holier than though” just a vareme, lichtike chosid. This is a tremendous loss for yidden and particularly chassidim, worldwide.

    Lived in Melbourne for a few years. Every Shabbos morning would just knock and walk in to their (Serabryanski) house on the corner for breakfast. Coffee and cookies from the warehouse. The door was always open for anyone who needed a place to eat or sleep.
    What a loss. Wishing Mrs. Sero a long life.

    While living in Australia, he was one of the pillars of the community and (living next door to the Yeshiva he) always had an open house for everyone to come at all hours of the day. A true Chassidesher Yid!

    The entire family is a pure and living example of Hiskashrus to the Rebbe . Their kindness and friendship to others is something that is legendary and has formed many many people into what they are today. With much love to Rebbetzin Sero….. D. Cadaner

    With such a smile…Moshiach will run and redeem us…out of love.

    655 shacharis minyan

    I have been in his weekday shacharis minyan for a few years now. I am a BT, as before getting into his minyan, I felt frustrated because there were no 770 working man’s minyanim which seemed at a reasonable speed, to annunciate every word. I found that in our minyan, and it felt like it was Reb Serabranski’s minyan, like he was the Rav of the minyan, he always lained, and just seemed to be the minyan. It would be nice if our hiddur minyan could be strengthened somehow, maybe in Reb Serabranski’s memory somehow. We have a thorough psukei… Read more »

    .Left a real impact on me

    I remember when learning in Oholei Torah 7th and 8th grade, every morning we a Chassidus shiur and Davening. R’ Chaim used to join the shiur sitting on the side, and then Daven with our Minyen. He sponsored bars of chocolate every day for every boy that the Mashgiach felt were Davening like a mensch. we were able to get a bar every day

    What a loss for klal yisroel! I am so sorry Mrs. Serebryanski to hear this. Your husband brought us such wonderful packages after Purim with a smile. He usually picked up the phone when I would call with a “Ha-llow.” He should be a maylitz yosher for all of us and demand Moshiach.

    So sorry to hear the loss of this very special chassid.
    He must have had great patience especially when his dear wife would spend hours mentoring and counseling those in the neighborhood. Just reading all the above comments, makes me realize how great a loss.
    Wishing the entire family only simchas…
