    A small Memory

    I met Rabbi Raichik in 1979, I was only eight years old. I Remember asking my father if he was the Lubavitcher Rebbe!
    My Father ZT”L told me that he wasn’t but at the same time told me, the sound of his name, Righteous, Is all I needed to know! And he was right!!

    I was by his funeral

    Knew Rabbi Raichik Well

    I could tell many stories but the first was as a 14 year old learning in Yeshiva Tanya with a shliach and trying to understand how a human being could live the life of a Benoni. That Friday night the shliach took me over to R’ Raichik’s house and he said there is a Benoni. Over the next 15 years that I passed through the house nothing ever contradicted those words that I heard years before. The most saintly man that I ever had a chance to interact with on a regular basis.
