The Gabai in our minyan.
November 21, 2020 9:28 pm

R’ sholem Ber, Was the gabai in our minyan in Lefferts shul. I was zoche to get aliyah from him this past Monday. He would give the hadran at our yearly siyum hashas in shul. He was full with Torah. From time to time I would pop in to Ksav Sofer and see him, listening to the shiurim and farbrengens from YBCLC Harav Nissen Mangel. In the afternoon you can find him learning there as well. What tzi’or of chosid, to see someone in his nineties excited about chazering a mammor or giving a shiur. So much to learn from.… Read more »

He was a Baal Korah @ one of the Bungalow……so so clear & word for word. He was a tzadik. He was just no one who you can never ever forget….
We will miss him dearly. He has a very special spot in Gan Eden. I’m telling you.

R’ Sholom Ber Odessa was a Magnificent
Person. He was one of a kind.
He illuminated Ksav Sofer with his unabated learning. Never met a person who had a love for learning Torah like
R’ Sholom Ber. His shoes will be tough to fill. He was also a Great Chazan. He will be missed @ 770, Ksav Sofer and Lefferts Shul.

We miss you already, dear Zaidy! We learned so much from you, and your legacy of passion for Torah and the Rebbe’s mivtzaim lives on. Waiting to see you again with Moshiach speedily! -Your granddaughter in E’Y

We met by accident many years ago in the country. My younger daughter was by herself in my car, and it started rolling, Rabbi Shanowicz was in his car and saw what was happening and intercepted my car with his, making a nice big dent in the side of his car. I sat in front of him in Lefferts shul for many years, and (almost) always remembered to move to the side so he could see the chazzan by kedusha.
I will miss him greatly when I’m in Crown Hgts.
The shul won’t be the same without him.

His life was learning Torah, never without a sefer.
His passion for davening with a tzibbur was known to all. His children also very into learning, grandchildren also, amazing to see.
