Rabbi Z. was my second grade teacher in Maine. His erudition, sincerity, and frumkeit was obvious even to a young child. He paid attention to every word we learned or davened:”Look inside, Look inside.” 45 years later, when he came to visit my family, he remembered all of the children’s names (who weren’t there) and asked about us.

Rabbi Z.’s consideration and humility left a lasting impression.

May the entire family be comforted

As a young bochur in Detroit and coming from a ba’al teshuva family, I always felt kind of like an outsider, except for the few times when I was lucky enough to visit the Zaklikovsky home. It always had a warm, chassidishe feel to it. Some of the coldest of winter days were briskly melted away with that feeling and I will always remember the kindness and happiness Rabbi Z shared with others, no matter who they were in the ever complex Chabad family polito-sphere.

When we were both living in Michigan,I was very friendly with Rabbi Z. Later, we both moved to Crown Heights, where we continued our friendship. He was an outstanding Chossid and was very helpful to everyone. He also sold Chabad seforim, along with numerous other activities. May he be a good advocate for the Jewish people and bring Moshiach now!

This story was verified by R. Moshe himself. R. Moshe was walking to Shul on Shabbos in Portland, Maine during a thunderstorm with pouring rain. A car stopped,the person driving rolled down the window and asked him, I am Jewish, can I give you a ride? R. Moshe thanked him and he explained that he is orthodox and we do not ride on Shabbos. The person was so taken by the pleasant manner and the fact that he was so sincere that the person became a Baal Teshuvah . He is a lawyer from NY that was vacationing there in… Read more »

Rabbi Z. was a friend. Of course, he always had a one-liner, no matter what. Like, when some new comer, like me was daavening: “What-a-ya going to do, say all the words?” One of his classics: Well, I guess I’m having a good day today, aren’t I, I walked out of the cemetery (he ran the cemetery). He loved Oak Park, because they had the house, some green lawn; he was very happy here. I think it was Rabbi Z. who said about my dear father in law, Big Ted makes you believe in God, because only God could have… Read more »
