May his neshama have an Aliyah, moshiach now!

Terrible loss!!

I grew up with Tzemach and truly attest to his absolutely golden heart. He was the most gentle and non-assuming character I’ve known and it was this very nature that attracted people to him. May his Neshama have the greatest aliyah thru descending back down here with Moshiach’s immediate arrival!

Rabbi Tzemach was the purest soul. Full of love and gentleness and the most elevated Torah middos. What a loss to the world. May Hashem comfort his family, Tzion and Yerushalem.

Devastating

Heartbreaking news. Tzemach was 1 year old when I started working in the Westwood Chabad house. He was the most sincere and kindhearted person I ever met. He will be sorely missed. My condolences go out to the entire family.

I am in shock…I just saw Tzemach at a Chasunah a couple weeks ago in NY, and a couple weeks before that in Shul on a visit to Los Angeles. He came from an illustrious family, and he could have felt above others, but he was the exact opposite. He loved to talk to people, with so much warmth, and kindness making one feel they were above him. The truth is he was the one who was above and beyond. A tragic loss for his parents, wife, siblings, children, and in laws, and also for his Chabad House community, and… Read more »

Words are meaningless when it involves the loss of a man like Tzemach. There are less words for his family to feel any comfort

What an amazing soul he is…

B”H Dear Mishpochos Cunin,

“Hamakom yinachem es’chem b’toch sha’ar aveilim Tziyon v’Yerushalayim!”
May you find healing and chizuk in your husband and father’s bright and holy legacy, to continue bearing the flame and illuminating many more lives.
I am deeply pained for your loss; my heart and tefillos are with you.
May this be the year we merit to usher in the light of Geulah and a world where we know of no more darkness, and we are reunited with all our loved ones.
May Rabbi Tzemech’s neshomo have a tremendous aliyoh.

So Sorry

so saddened to hear about the passing of one of Rabbi Cunin’s illustrious offspring. I did not know him, but rather I was more familiar with the older children. We often met in the neighborhood and schmoozed a bit, as they took their shabbos walks on Galey Ave, near UCLA, with their tattie and mommy. I was also amazed at the children’s leibidikcyte and modesty especially during a tumultuous time around 1968-69, which was anything but modest. Surely from what I am hearing and reading, Tzemach was cut from the same cloth. He will be sorely missed within the Los… Read more »

A True Source of Inspiration

Whenever we met Tzemach when he came to visit his in laws in Morristown, he always had the most amazing mivtzoyim story that had just happened. He saw shlichus as a privilege. In the spirit of chabad, he was empowered to do whatever needed to be done to accomplish the mission with a sweet and down to earth energy. He was proud of the family he came from and the family he married into and treated his regal wife with respect and sweetness. He will always be a source of inspiration to me.
