beautiful story - but not surprised
February 24, 2021 12:33 am

What a beautiful story! This is very typical of Benjy Stock, to notice those who are alone and may be needing a little encouragement or those who have been forgotten, and to make them feel special and know that people care. He is a true man of chessed!

This story represents vintage Benjy Stick…. a man with an amazing heart and neshama .. a man of chesed and compassion. The world needs more Benjy Stocks.

A heartfelt Yasher Koach to this great man…. a true Chosid (in every way)

Brings tears of joy to my eyes!

May Almighty G-D bless Rabbi Benjy sheyichye Stock! You are truly a “Mechanech Bar Poal” as the best way to educate Temimim to be kind, caring and sensitive to others is by personal living example and indeed you are the “Dugma Chayah” of a chassid oon der Rebbe’s a mentch! The Rebbe said Purim 5747: “It would be appropriate that at every gathering of Jews, it should be announced: ‘Jews, attention! A single additional good act from one of you could be the final act which brings the redemption!’” No doubt that Rabbi Stock has brought the Geula so much… Read more »

We as a community are so fortunate to have Reb Benjy Stock, Reb Elchanan Deitsch and Mrs Debby Jerufi living among us, they do so much Chesed (without peoples knowledge, expecting nothing in return) I for one am thankful to have them living amongst us, May Hashem bless them and their families with an abundance of bliss, and Chasidisha Nachas from their children.

From a proud community member.

Tremendous thoughtfulness on Rabbi Benji’s part and on the part of Malka Catering and Debbi Jeruffi Events To Benji I say ” Der epple fahlt niht veit fuhn baim.” You’re a chip off the old block – the unforgettable Shimshon and Martha Stock. They taught you well and are still with us through you.
Was happy to see that the bochurim appreciated it all and did their part to make the chassan ha’bar mitzvah feel special. Benji, may you continue to be the ish chessed that you are ’til Moshiach, v’ad be’chlal.

My thoughts exactly!

While I was reading this moving story, I thought the same thing. Rabbi Benjy Stock is following in the footsteps of his parents. I also was moved to tears by the efforts of so many to make this once-in-a-lifetime occasion a memorable one.

This is chinuch!

This is how you transform the vibe in a mossad. This is how you teach young people to stay the track. We often wonder, “How can we use limited resources (time, funds, staff, etc.) on those that ‘don’t fit in’? How can we deny the ‘majority’ a learning environment that is ‘perfectly’ catered to them?” This is the answer. This is how you reach the majority. This is how they know that they, too, will be taken care of if needed. If they can trust the environment, they can relax and learn and will stick with it for the long… Read more »

such beautiful sensitivity

Still missed
February 24, 2021 6:49 pm

Benjy was raised in a home of chesed so this isn’t surprising to many of us. 
His father Shimshon’s yartzheit is Purim – I can’t think of Purim without remembering Shimshon and his aishet chayil Martha, who passed away a few weeks after him. Shimshon’s relationship with the Rebbe was legendary and I’m sure the Rebbe and his devoted Chasid are sitting and learning together. Benjy, your parents are shepping nachas!

March 2, 2021 1:53 am

Here is a similar very interesting hashgacha pratis. There was a singer in Israel who has quite a name, and charges a decent amount for his services. He was asked if he would sing free at the bar mitzvah of a yasom. He said he needs the money, it is hard for him. But they said that the boy likes his singing very much, and it would make a big difference to him. He agreed, and came, and sat down next to the boy, and got to know him a bit, and he sang and sang, and even spoke, and the boy was very happy. Two days later, he… Read more »
