The amount of times these things happen are too much to bear any longer!!! How many times must we hear abt these innocent people?? It is too much already Hashem, Ad Masai?!!!
I dont know who this person is.. but I am taking on a Hachlata in his memory.
Please everyone do the same. We cant sit by and witness without taking action.

I knew him as a teacher and friend, he was just always so positve, always smiling. He had a great sense of humor! He will be sadly missed! BDE (i guess is all i can really say 🙁 )

I don’t even know him but if he is a bochur in tomchei temimim, where he learns to keep this crazy world going, helps people at his own expense, and try his very best to do what Hashem wants, I don’t understand how Hashem can do this to a tomim, let alone his family and yeshiva. Ad mosai, I don’t know what else to say other than we need moshiach, a redemption.
May this pure boys neshama have an Aliya and demand before Hashem nothing likes this ever happens anywhere again. Let’s all do something in his merit!!!

Chaya! Please stay strong!

I am generally hard to move, but i found it extremely hard to hold back tears after hearing such appalling and unbelievable news. What is there to say? How is one supposed to respond? May Hashem bring this ever so bitter Golus to an end. That is all there is to pray for.
Please be comforted, blessed Kaushansky family. The faith and courage which you will display now will bring you to the highest heavenly realms, “ואוהביו כצאת השמש בגבורתו”, may Hashem redeem us all now!

If there was ever a person who inspired more people in 17 years than many of us will merit to inspire in an average lifetime, it was rafi kaushansky. His smile and upbeat personality, along with his perseverance while he indeed had every reason to quit, was such a wake up call to all those around him. He inspired me on a daily basis and, while we will all miss him sorely, may we all be zoche to accomplish even just a part of what this pure neshama did in such a short time. Many blessings of comfort to the… Read more »

when Raffi was a little boy I asked him what does he want for his birthday. I thought for sure he would answer some type of toy or candy. without thinking he responded to me “Moshiach”.

We wont forget his beautiful smile, Moshiach Now!

Tonight’s choir at Toronto Cheder Chabad melaveh malkah where Rafi went as a child sang a touching niggun yedid nefesh which the principal Rabbi Baruch Zaltzman dedicated in his honour. Rafi was a true yedid, beloved by all.

When I think of Rafi I think of the huge, genuine smile that always lit up his face. I would eye him with pity as he’d walk from our car into school with his walker. But the look I saw on his face was always pure inner joy- never sadness. What an inspiration!!
