What a legacy your father and mother gave you. We came to Crown heights which was so foreign to us in so many ways but the minute we enterrd the Baumgaurten home… It WAS HOME.We women’s Libbers sat separate from all the boys without a minute of feeling second best. How could one feel second best when showered with acceptance and joy and laughter!!people like your parents never die!!Im sure they are happily together receiving instructions from Mashiach how to guide us all on the front line bez’h today. All our comfort in these days til that moment. Tzfas chaveros

בס”ד over 50 years ago we drove to be with The Rebbe for יב תמוז and where we were to stay was cancelled. We, parents and children, were taken to The Baumbartens’. R’Mendel most graisiously put us up for Shabbos and a couple days more. Mrs. B and their family were not even home. We brought in Shabbos food, when R’Mendel saw we somehow did not have hard boiled eggs, he cooked them for us. He left for the country and his family after Shabbos, leaving us alone in their house. We later got to know both R’Mendel and Mrs,… Read more »

I have fond memories of the many beautiful Shabbos dinners I spent withe the Baumgartens. Rabbi Baumgarten was always so kind and spoke so nicely to everyone who came. Of course the singing was so beautiful. Rochel Leah (Brown) Kosofsky

A priviledge to know them, here and in the world to come.

While I did not regularly attend the Baumgarten shul, I, along with many other women, went early on Shabbos morning to hear Rabbi Baumgarten for Parshas Zachor and his beautiful reading of the Megillah on Purim. His reading was very appreciated.

As the Baal Tefillah on the Yamim Noraim and on Yomtov he is still missed. His clarity in the Nusach, the wonderful Niggunim, and,above all, the Emes one felt in his davenning, carried the Kehillah…..Thank you, Rabbi Baumgarten.

Sad to see a man of his statue passed away. BD”H. The notice talks about his hospitality. Which indeed was part excellence. Without question nor discrimination nor any judgments to any. Reb Mendel was a true Mentch in the full sense of the word. His extreme calm nature his Hadras Ponim his smile and warm character. His Midos was one for example. Always accomplishing the ‘Kabel Kol Odom Be’sefer Ponim Yofos’. Knowing him personally, while with him you felt loved safe and relaxed. A true Tzadik. In addition, remembering being hosted at his Shabbos and Yom Tov Table with his… Read more »

The Baumgarten home on Shabbos was a taste of Gan Eden – the “boys” singing with their father, the delicious food, the warm & welcoming family atmosphere, the kovod for the parents – a true Chabad House right here on Carroll Street ! A profound loss … Moshiach NOW !!!!
