I am so saddened by your post. I was zoche to be a guest in their home many, many times over the years I lived in Boston and considered Leah a true friend. Though I haven’t seen them in many years, my heart is always lightened when I think of them. Their open hearts and home were spectacular models for my own so many years later. Reb Leibel will be sorely missed. May Leah and the rest of the family be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Yerushalayim.

Dovi is the man!!

We want Moshiach Now!

Thank you for writing that. He was my teacher too in elementary school in Boston — and as described, a gentle,emesser chossid. I too went to be menachem avel, and was awed by the stories I was hearing — so much to so humble an individual. Moshiach NOW!!

Great article Dovie.

Met him over thirty years ago At Dorchester and D Street. Was a wonderful man!

We need more like him. Doing what he is supposed to do and not making so much noise about himself.

Nice. Touching. Sad. Uplifting.

Very well written, for a very special individual. The world lost a human angel.

Thank you Dovi for sharing

Thank you Dovi for sharing those incredible inspiring lessons from your uncles life. I never knew him but I know his 2 daughters Rivki and Dini, tzu lange Yaren. They have definitely internalized the lessons their father imparted through his behavior and are role models of Hatznea Leches while being warm and caring in their own communities.

I was blessed to know him and he always had a smile on his face. He was a true chosid, Yirah Shamiem and a Lamdan. May he storm the geavens on behalf of Klal Yisroel. The article shows that its not the color graphics that does the job its the Ahavas Ytisroel.

I was a student in the supermarket shopping when Rabbi Scheiner asked me if I was Jewish and I wondered how he knew since my cart was empty. He invited me for a very memorable Shabbos meal. May his family be reunited with R’ Leibel very soon with the coming of Moshiach!

Masterful Article!

Dovi, keep on sending us inspiring articles!

I had Rav Scheiner in 4& 5th grade in Boston Lubavitz Yeshiva during his first years in Boston. Among many of his virtues, he carefully watched & listened to our class during davening every morning. During that time, he didn’t daven, mark tests or learn Chitas. He politely reminded us to daven looking into the siddur. The Scheiner family moved to Crown Heights in the summer of 1968. The Rebbe sent them back to Boston in 1974. I last saw him in shul during my 2013 visit to Boston.

what a Chosid!

WOW!

I know him as a humble man. What I don’t know, is just how humble. This story illustrates how much he did that nobody knew about.

More than a teacher
April 1, 2014 11:00 am

Rabbi Scheiner was my teacher in high school in Boston Lubavitch or new England Herbrew Acedemy as it was called. He was more than a teacher, he cared about every student and that special interest showed. I can just picture him going down the aisles handing out the papers as decribed in this great article,.
