“בגיל 14 כתב מכתב להרוגוצובר ובמכתב התשובה כונה “הרב הגאון
בנן של קדושים
נכד בא”ב לר’ רבי משולם פייביש הלפרין אב”ד ברעזאן
שהיה חתן ר’ אשר רובין מראפשיץ
חתן רנ”צ מראפשיץ

Reb Chuna was a true Tzadik. One of the last of that generation. His ahavas yisroel was felt by all who knew him. He will be missed greatly.

I was very close with his brother’s family in Manchester. There are so many amazing stories of Reb Chuna ZT”L from during the war in the camps that show the greatness of this Rav. I once had to call him & I spoke to his Rebbetzin zol zei gezunt, a lovely, fine lady. The problem disappeared immediately. I agree with #2, his passing is a huge loss to the fum world.

To # 3, R’ Chuna arrived in England before the war and Boruch Hashem he was not in the camps, although he lost his parents. For many years he and his Rebbetzin o”h would learn Tanya together.
The Rebbe referred to him as “mein Mechutan” on a few occasions, as his daughter married a Schneerson from the Tchebin dynasty.

Reb Chuna would sign his name: Hakodesh Harav Elchanan ben Harav Dovid Halpern.

May he have a lichtigen Gan Eiden.

When I was in London Yeshiva, Reb Chuna tested us on Gemara.
Reb Chuna learnt Gemara with chassidus, and was very fluent in the Rebbes sichas!

As a bochur in Yeshivas Chayei Olam in Golders Green in the early ’70’s Reb Chuna would often visit the Yeshiva to daven & faher the Bochurim. Many times on Motzei Shabbos he would call the yeshiva for bochurim to come over to his shul to make a minyan for Melave Malka. He was makpid to have a minyan & would tell sippurei tzadikim & horaos b’chayim for teenage bochurim. He understood us & always had insights for us.
Yehei Zichro Boruch.
