Rabbi Feigelstock is a true pillar of Montreal community. May his legacy live on with Moshiach now.
A most humble and positive individual always smiling and always with a good work who lived a life of ruchnius only.

a great chossid who was close to the friederker Rebbe and our Rebbe from the 1930’s. he will be missed.
correction: in the article it says he became a student of the lubavitch yeshiva in montreal in 1943, however really he became a student in 770 in 1943.

Rabbi Feigelstok a Montreal Legend

What a great loss with the passing of Rabbi Feigelstok, a true Erlicher yid, a true Chosid, Yiras Shomayim and Lamden. He had a wonderful influence on generations of Lubavitchers who grew up in Montreal. The last link to the Erlichkeit of pre war Europe.
He and his wife OBM were real pillars of Anash in Montreal, much of what it was and is, is thanks to them. He was the ultimate pride of the frierdiker Rebbe, the Rebbe, and the original 9 shluchim to Montreal. חבל על דאבדין ולא משתכחין.

I grew up in Montreal in the 1960s. My family was not religious–European-traditional–but not religious. In the 60s before my bar mitzva. I had the zechus to meet he Feigelstocks and my life literally changed. I started to keep shabbos and moved on. Sitting at their shabbos table was a special experience. I didn’t realize that I was building a real connection with Hashem. I never became a Lubavticher Chosid but continued learning and today I am a Rosh Yeshiva in Yerushalyim.all because of the them.
