    he should rest in peace in Gan Eden.
    He cares for us all from his high up place too. KOL HAKAVOD for all he did for everything, but must specific to mention what he did for SM Rubashkin

    I am shocked

    I just met him by Chamah’s annual dinner this year. He was a larger then life figure, a man who radiate an aura of goodness and happiness, a true visionary, someone who did what was right regardless of what the naysayers said about him. He bridged the divide and helped bring about a unity between christians and jews in america, and throughout the world.

    We are going to miss you.

    A wonderful man with a big heart

    He was a very kind, caring person and showed pride for his Chabad connections. He would daven beautifully for the amud and would share divrei Torah by the kiddush. He will be missed by our community. Baruch Dayan Haemes.
