    He will be missed for many things… For one, the childrens Megila reading was not the same without him last night at Lubavitch of Edgware, and it will miss him forever more…😥
    May Hashem comfort his Aishes Chayil and precious children, together with his dear parents and siblings.

    R’ Mendel was also an active Sofer STa”M, both in Melbourne and later in London. He wrote the tefillin parshiyos for one of my friends. May the family be comforted and may this sorrow be imminently transformed to days of sosson vsimcha with moshiach, now!

    He was a true mentsch, had a love for Hashem, the Rebbe and fellow human beings
    Edgware was deeply influenced by his presence and his classes [which always had a good l’chaim served]

    I will never forget what a great Shaliach he was when he was here as a bochur.
    He learnt with my sons and was a great mashpia to them
    whilst they were impressionable youngsters.

    Why?
    Why is Adar, the happiest month, a month of Simcha, so wrought with pain, with sadness, with tragedy. Only Moshiach will be able to explain….

    Standing outside the chabad house yesterday. Watching my dear friend Miriam and her children crushed and looking so lost, was heart breaking. My husband has lost his dear friend and chavrusa. My heart breaks for them all. Mendy always loved to say lchaim and his extensive wine and exotic whiskey which were always shared with his close friends. We have lost a great chassidic genius.

    The news about my dear friend Mendy hit me in the middle of my Purim celebration, that was the end of my happiness and serenity. I have known you for so many years, back in 770, you and your wife have graciously hosted me for entire weeks in a row at your house, and all without fanfare, always saying “come anytime you want, stay for as long as you need”..I was not a guest in your house rather like a ben bayis. I was amazed at your kishroynos in everything you got yourself into: from Chazzanus, to Safrus, to being… Read more »

    Oh how the beloved and dear Mendel Gorman was taken away from us!!!!! The Gormans are such an incredibly warm and loving family, and it’s so hard to hear and bear this tragic news.

    May they only know of Simcha and revealed goodness from now on.

    I am deeply shocked to learn of the petirah of Mendy O”H. As one of his teachers in Kita Dalet, a wonderful kind and aidel talmid, and the enthusiasm in his learning Mishnayos Baal Peh, May all the kindness that he performed in the short years he spent on earth, ensure a lichtige Gan Eden. My heart goes out to Reb Hershel, his wife, his children and siblings with Brochos of Nichumim and Arichus Yomim.

    Miriam I am thinking of you and Perel whom I taught here and all your children and all the Gorman family. Only Hashem can comfort you all we can do is share in your pain and attempt to emulate some of Mendys fine Middos Ahavas Yisroel and Yiras Shamayim. המקום ינחם אתכם בתוך שאר אבלי ציון וירושלים
    May Hashem send you abundant good and nachas from now on.
