Igros Kodesh of the Rebbe volume 18 page 499.

As a young child, I felt none of these things described here. To me he was simply the zaidy who would let me climb up him, who would tickle my neck and give me wafers and chocolate with a smile that lit up his face. As I grew older I came to sense and appreciate how his every action was done with total dedication to the Rebbe.
Zaidy, keep us strong. Moshiach now!

As a young English bochur coming for tishrei to see the Rebbe for the 1st time, the rebbe told me in yechidus that on my return to London I must learn chassidus every Monday! The Rebbe then went on to tell me that Rabbi Sudak gives a shiur in Chassidus in his home every sunday night & as the shiur continues till after nightfall that can be considered your shiur for Monday! yehi zichro Boruch.

Our wonderful library would never have become the tremendous success that it is today without the support and encouragement of Rabbi Sudak.

Rabbi Sudak was the nices man, the kindest man, and just someone to look up to. There’s no other words to say about him. All of us and all of his children will miss him dearly. A Londoner.

A huge loss to everyone in London & the UK including my shluchim children, & a huge loss to Chabad as a whole. Thank you for these great pictures, they only capture a tiny bit of the esence of this true Chosid of the Rebbe. He will be greatly missed.

June 15, 2014 3:46 pm

lets not forget how reb Nacmen and reb laibel raskin were a major part in having the rebbe be magiah sichos

BH. More than anything, I felt his friendship, he is leaving London like a body without a soul. BORUCH DAYAN HOEMES

BD”E So Sad. His life was saved by Hatzalah at the kinus. I guess Hashem granted him some extra time to finish off some important business. But now he had to return his Neshamah. May he be a mailitz yashar for klal Yisroel.
May his family be comforted among the mourners of Tzion and Yerushalayim.

Rabbi sudak was not just an example of, but was “a true chosid” rabbi sudak is someone that has not just changed my life but has created my life. Although you are no longer with us, there is a a part of you that continues to live on in me.
thank you rabbi sudak, it is only cause of the true person you are that today I am a chosid of the rebbe

what the rebbe wrote about it as a bochur.
June 15, 2014 1:22 pm

“האברך הוו”ח אי”א נו”נ בעל מדות ורב פעלים נחמן שי’ סודאק, וועלכער האט געטאן דא זייענדיג אין ענליכע ארבעט, און האט געהאט זייער גוטע רעזולטאטען, און לויט ווי איך האב מיט עם גערעט, וואלט געווען גלייך, צוליב פילע טעמים, אז ער זאל אויסניצען זיינע פעהיגקייטען און קענטניש, אין דער ארבעט פון פארשטארקען און פארשפרייטונג פון אידישקייט בכלל און הפצת המעינות בפרט, אין לונדון און אומגעגענד.”
