Sincerely lived and breathed Geula and Moshiach every day of his life. There was not a day where it was not at the forefront of his mind. I remember listening to him comment at his son’s chassuna how he was extremely disappointed that the wedding was where it was and not in Eretz Yisroel with Moshiach. He truly lived the possuk “im lo aleh yerushalaim al rosh simchasi”, and he most definately will be a ‘meilitz yosher’ that he come speedily!

A True Chossid

It is not up to little people like us to describe the qualities of a true ChossidThose qualities are clearly described in the Rebbe’s Sichos etc. It is clear from the Rebbe’s words,that Rabbi Blau was a true Chossid,in which case it is fitting to say אבד חסיד מארץ.
We have indeed all suffered a great loss of a proof that in our day and age,It IS POSSIBLE to be a Chossid like it was in the “good Old Days”

Your yeshiva borchrim are very grateful for all you have done for us . For taking us into your yeshiva and feeding us every Shabbos and much more. It is no doubt that you and your husband have and will continue to bring much nachas to your father
May we have the ultimate revelation of Melech Hamoshiach. And we hear your father once again delivering his daily word about moshiach in the 3rd Beis hamikdash Now!!!!

Be"H what a special person

A true chosid of the rebbe, he was too young to be taken from us, but I am positive that he will push for the immediate hisgalus.

Hamakom yenacem eschem besoch shaarei tzion veyerushalyim!

Moshiach now

The good news
June 27, 2016 9:29 pm

The good news is that he will surely storm the heavens and demand Moshiach.. That’s what he lived for.

Wow what a sicha
June 27, 2016 8:54 pm

Where the rebbe openly expressed his appreciation and satisfaction for the TORAH gedanken

Does anyone know where that sicha is from ?

I also once heard that when rabbi Blau was struggling to continue paying for the torah gedanken around the time of the rebbes heart attack…. The mazkirus told him that he cannot stop since the rebbe asks for a copy of the torah gedanken every week, and they were afraid the rebbe should see it’s not printed – instead the mazkirus offered to give him some money towards the project

May his memory be blessed

BDE my heart is with you Esther!

a dugmah in the shechunah for us all.

He was a הצנע לכת
June 27, 2016 6:19 pm

he was a person that was constantly aware and always reminding those around him to put in daily thought and action what the rebbe is expecting from us

The years that the farbrengens were broacast over the radio he would send a car to drive thruout Boro park; and as all remember his voice on the mike on the car saying : “Tonite will be a very very special farbrengen from The Lubavitcher Rebbe Shlito @ 9:30 pm and will be broacast live on radio station WEVD”.

A true Chossid

When I was a bochur, I would listen to his inyanei Moshiach Geulah section in 770. His message I took loud and clear.

Such an amazing person, chossid, husband, father, zaide. In the more the 30 years I’ve known rabbi blau and his family I never heard him raise his voice in anger. Always a kind word for everyone no matter you were.

My heart goes out to his family, May his neshama always have aliyahs

Devastated

Aibershter! Please bring Moshiach! NOW! Yidden! We need to work on our achdus!! The Rebbe writes that sinas chinam had no basis. And to rectify this we need ahavas chinam! This means, that loving another yid, even where we have no basis to! Even if we think we have valid reasons to hate them/slander them, etc. And yet, we must still love them and respect them! Thats the kind of ahavas chinam that we need to bring Moshiach! (Think… Bad-mouthing our rabbanim in public, anonymous forums, even if we THINK we have a right to. If even one person would… Read more »
