Rov Schochet z’l will be greatly missed. He helped me and my family on numerous instances with his kind, generous, and understanding paskening, always investing time and care showing his true Ahavas Yisrael for every Jew. I always felt his ways resembled that of The Rebbe, of blessed memory. May his family be comforted. May his neshama have the highest of aliyah.

The Rov’s wisdom, warmth and caring – all in one – was very rare and unique

The Rov’s guidance and advice helped numerous individuals and families throughout the years. His genuine and loving demeanor would melt your heart and every encounter with the Rov left a lasting impression. You knew you were talking to a lofty Talmid Chacham and Oived Hashem.

We can’t begin to express our sadness. May the family be comforted and may we be reunited b’karov with Moshiach Tzidkeinu.

He was and is so good. My Rav, like a father, more than a father, to bring me under the wings of the schechina. He did everything he could to love me and it really is as if he never left.
