We used to see him walking up & down outside his house, smoking. He never bothered a soul, always quiet and refined, a nice young man. Very sorry to hear, Baruch Dayan HaEmes.

He went to my Day Hab.
I knew him. He went to Yachad JUF Day Hab and that he lived with Chaim Goldman. BDE.

Oy vey
I remember him from Gan Yisroel Mtl 5753 and saw him many times throughout the years. He was a very exceptional soul, friendly to a tee and an amazing person. This is terrible news.

Hope that the family finds comfort in these words of truth from the Rebbe.

"To Know and To Care":

Rabbi Nachum Rabinovitz, an elder chassid who lives in Jerusalem, was
once waiting for yechidut (a private audience with the Rebbe). Among
those waiting was a young man, obviously wealthy, but wearing a morose
and despondent expression.

A short while later, the young man entered the Rebbe’s room, and when
he emerged, his expression had changed. His face beamed forth energy
and vitality.

Curious about this abrupt shift in emotion, when his own yechidut
concluded, Reb Nachum inquired about the young man’s identity from the
Rebbe’s secretaries and was able to arrange a meeting.

“I am a wealthy man,” the young man told Reb Nachum, “but recently, my
only son died. At that point, I felt that my life no longer had any
purpose. I saw no value to my wealth or my position.

“I went to the Rebbe for solace and advice.

“The Rebbe asked me what my feelings would be if my son went overseas
and was living in a foreign country from which he could not
communicate to me, but in which I could be assured that all his needs
were being met and he had no suffering at all.

“I answered that although the separation would be difficult to bear, I
would be happy for my son.

“ ‘And although he could not respond, if you could communicate with
him and send packages to him,’ the Rebbe continued, ‘would you do so?’

“ ‘Of course,’ I answered.“ ‘

This is precisely your present situation,’ the Rebbe concluded. ‘With
every word of prayer you recite, you are sending a message to your
son. And with every gift you make to charity or institution which you
fund you are sending a package to him. He cannot respond, but he
appreciates your words and your gifts.’ ”


One time visiting a shiva, the Rebbe explained that no one goes away.
A passing is like someone moving from a mundane bayis to a bright

We also use the term
"HaMokom" to stress that Hashem who is here with us is the same Hashem
who is there with our loved ones above and connects both us and them

May you have comfort and brochos from now on.

HaMokom Yenachem eschem bsoch shaar aveileo Tzion Virushalayim.

So so sad. Just terrible.

I dont think my walk on Crown Street is going to be the same. He was such a nice person and I could tell that from having such a minimal interaction with him.

May Hashem comfort the family
And bring Moshiach now

Special Notti
Notti always had a sense of humor in things, he loved life and enjoyed being around the action of Crown Heights. Notti loves his family and loved being at every Simcha.
A special Neshama has left us and we will truly miss Notti.
May Notti's family find comfort in this difficult time.

I remember he once told a joke in front of cgi parksville almost 30 years ago:
"Why did the guy go to sleep next to the oil truck"
"Because he wanted to wake up oily for the minyan"
Noti will be missed :(
