Our hearts are broken for Tante Nechama and the children.
He was a really good person! Always a smile on his face, a good joke to share.
Sensitive to others and always a good word.

Sending our love to Tante Nechama and all the kids.

Dear friend

Nicest person

He devoted his life

He devoted his life.
He would spend long long trips going just to help out another Jew (Frum or no Frum) for one little and simple thing he was a great man!! He will be missed forever & ever.

This was a man who embodied simchas Ha Chaim.! He rejoiced at our sheva bruchas and was full of mitzvahs and life and encouragement. May we see him soon again . May Nechama and his siblings and the entire family be comforted among all the mourners of Tzion and Yerushalayim.

A true chossid

The personification of Ahavas Yisroel. A true chossid, a humble and dedicated shliach and friend to all. We will all miss him. Boruch dayan ha’emes.

There are few words to describe this very, very special human being other than he was a gift from G-d to ALL of us. I pray that his family, friends and congregants that have gone before him were there to welcome him to his rightful place in heaven with the Almighty. We were blessed to have him in our lives for decades, and will cherish every moment, every memory, every lesson and every kindness that he bestowed upon our family and to our Jewish community in rural Southern New Jersey. This is an immeasurable loss to his family and community.… Read more »

What painful news to hear. As a friend of Yisroel for over 35 years, I never heard him utter anything negative about anyone – every! Reb Yisroel lifted up people with his Ahavas Yisroel, humor and caring personality. א חסיד מיט אמת’ע אהבת ישראל, אן אמת’ע שליח – ונזכה לגאולה שלימה בקרוב עם משיח צדקנו. שלמה גשטטנר

He was a Bochur Shliach in Ohr Elchonon in Los Angeles. He was like an older brother to us boys in the lower grades at the time. He would take us for pizza, slurpies or just pull aside to talk and try to cheer us up for those of us that were homesick. I would run into him here and there and it was like old times, Utterly heartbroken by this terrible loss. He was a great guy who will be missed by all.

A shliach with great merit
February 4, 2021 3:15 pm

This shliach who was a complete stranger to me once helped me out with information I needed, with such a generous and friendly spirit. And the information happened to be such a relief to me- he was the shliach to bring me peace of mind, I will always be grateful.

It is with shock upon hearing this tragedy. Reb Yisroel was one of the most caring, positive, kind people I know. Always with a smile. Always there to help. Always cheerful. A true mentch that exhibited tremendous Ahavas Yisroel. Would travel distances just to help a yid. I spent several summers with him as a bochur in camp. His characteristics of joy, happiness, true Ahavas HaChaim, was an inspiration to all those that met him. He was a real Chassid who anticipated the Geualah Shleima. Ad Mosai! Our best are leaving us. We are an orphaned generation. Please Hashem, Bring… Read more »

A legend. A tzaddik. A dedicated shliach who sacrificed everything for the Rebbe’s mission. I fondly remember farbrenging with him on many occasions, always smiling and laughing and encouraging us to be the best we can be. BDE. Enough is enough Hashem. May the family and his loving community be comforted.

Beautiful chosid who was always busy doing beautiful things. Never said “no” for a favor or to lend a hand and always with a smile and good humor. This is the entire Torah…the rest is commentary.

Such shocking & sad news! We will miss you Rabbi!
February 4, 2021 10:53 pm

Rabbi Rapoport epitomized what a good man is supposed to be. He was so much to so many people in this world, a rabbi, a mensch, a husband, a father, an uncle, a friend to many, and so much more. Somehow, he always made the time to be all of those things. Now, our dear friend and faithful leader has departed this world and is joining the other tzadikim in the next. Though he will surely bask in the kedusha of olam haba, many tears are flowing and will continue to flow for him in olam hazeh. Like many, I… Read more »

He was so loved by the community for which he served, and by all who ever had the experience of knowing him. This is a sad loss for so many who truly loved and admired him. May his memory be a blessing
