I remember Rabbi Rubin from my early years in montreal It is true, he was a vareme chossid, always with a gutte vort, a hartzige brocha on his lips and a smile for everyone. I remember going over to his house when I was young, almost 50 years ago, and those were in the years before hakhel gatherings, and messibos shabbos, and yet we always gathered for nosh, stories, and farbrengens..(shaindy, remember your sukkos bday party?) a true role model for our own children.. they need to see chassidim like him to emulate …

So special to see R ‘Moshe Rubin’s photo when I opened COL. Every word that emerged from him exuded love of the Aibishter. חבל על דאבדין ולא משתכחין.

As a teenager in the basement shul of the yeshivah in Montreal I remember R’ Moshe Rubin giving encouraging words that uplifted and praised and never put down or belittled the person he was talking to.

He was a story teller par excellence, he was very warm and loving but told kotzke stories with such sharp messages of truth, pnimius, and running away from chitzonius, he told them with such warmth and joy.

Our dear principal in Cheder Ohr Menachem in Crown Heights.
The smile and love and tireless efforts that go into educating our children are stemmed from the branches of his beloved grandfather AH ; Rabbi Rubin. We are blessed and lucky .

In the bungalow next to his where he would spend the summers lived a secular Jew. Reb Moshe asked this Jew to wrap Tefillin, and he refused. Reb Moshe then explained to him that in order for his davening to be complete, he needed his neighbor to also daven next to him. This convinced the neighbor and that’s how he got him to not only wrap Tefillin but also experienced Reb Moshe’s davening. If I got any of the details wrong, I hope his family members will correct them.

Reading about R’ Moishe Rubin o” bm I would like to dedicate a personal story. When I was a boy of 9-10 years old, I attended the Lubavitch Yeshiva in Worcester, Mass. (Rabbi Fogelman o”bm ) and R’Moshe taught me and and one more boy Gemoreh. Due to lack of funds, we would borrow gem ores from the local old Shul to use. The Gemores were also old, and the margins would crack, and small pieces would always be falling to the floor. mind you there weren’t any letters on these pieces. I noticed that when we had recess he… Read more »

Montreal.........Pourim 1978.........E. E.

I could never forget Rabbi Rubin za’l singing a beautiful niggoun, «the shepperd» on that pourim 1978, my first pourim in Montréal with my friend Sarah Kreyna Tihyé at their home….He was such a gentleman, each time I would meet him. I remember being in N.Y by his daughter Sarah Yuzewitz and Rabbi Moche of blessed memory, told me he will walk with me to 770 so I would be safe, on the way he was reciting by heart something…. One day, Rabbi Moche za’l told me : you know, in french to say: it’s raining we say: IL pleut,… Read more »

since everyone is saying stories…. We live at the corner of Bourret and Westbury and my parents didn’t like that people used our front lawn as a short cut to cut the corner. It broke our bushes and left a trail on the grass except for one person who also did the short cut, while davening, every letter out loud, lovingly — this person Rabbi Moshe Rubin my parents felt it was a zechus that he used our little corner on his way to shul. Only after he passed away we closed up the way so no one could cut… Read more »

a warm felling

Growing up in Montreal I have the warmest feelings for Reb Moishe Rubin.
Since, I knew how to drive and sometimes had a car he would ask me to give him a lift to the bakery. Then as “payment” for driving him he would tell me a vort or a story. He was so alive when he spoke those words.

Correct me if I’m wrong, The Frierdige Rebbe told both his son in laws to attend his wedding.

My father ע”ה told me that by כוס של ברכה someone once asked the Rebbe for כוס של ברכה for R. Moshe Rubin. The responded that he (R. Moshe) says every word in davening twice, so he should get twice. And the Rebbe gave him twice for R. M.R.
