Rabbi Yosef volovik was someone I always admired, his comittment to the rebbes inyanim and his yerai shamayin was par none, he left shoes that will be impossible to fill, but a legacy that will allow us to continue to learn from all his ways. Bde

Great loss.

I would walk into the store and buy something just to be able to talk to him, he had a chssidisher Vahremkeit that was contagious. He will be missed.

His warmth and humble kindness was always visible. Ive never heard anything negative from him. Even as he became weaker this last year i didn’t know he was sick because of his simple humility. For 5 years I knew him one thing he taught me was not to speak negatively of myself. I will miss being amoung his presence. BDE

I boarded in their house. Rabbi Volovok – a true mentch, good natured to the core, humble with a chassidishe varmkeit. With all his virtues of a brilliant mind etc, at the end of the day he was a cherished and exemplary husband and father. His children and grandchildren were his pride and joy. Praying for Moshiach..

Reb Volovik was the living spirit of our Russian speaking community. We cannot imagine our prayers, Farbrengen, our Jewish life without his leadership, understanding and kind smile. Our condolences to the family.

I remember him in camp Gan Yisroel-NY leading the Ashrei prayers with the Russian Campers in the main building.
I can hear it now – it was so loud and powerful it went into our bones even sitting in the Gan yisroel dining room.

One of the main backbones of the FREE Shul and he made many True Bal Teshuvas that have families – kids and grandkids that are frum.

He will have a lichdike Gan Eden close up to the Rebbe.
Msy he be a kuta bette for his entire family a special family and for all of us.
