    Please enough with doctors and hours. Anyone not feeling well should contact Mrs Clapman she practically charges nothing and can be free if it’s a student with no funds. She’s located on Montgomery.

    BDE this is terrible and we all feel it together. Mendy, R’ Itche Meir, all – hope these words of the Rebbe at least bring some comfort, as the truth of them is clear. The Rebbe also said at a shiva that by Chasidim we know that a passing is like someone moving from the bayis to the alya, the same person going to a much higher level. Rebbe’s Words (from 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).

    Ad mosai we are all in shock it doesn’t make sense, he was the most special bochur I have ever known never spoke a word of nonsense in the times of learning and he wouldn’t tell someone off if he saw them talk about unimportant things during seder rather he showed them enthusiasm in learning and automatically we all started to learn. Uri you will always be in our hearts and follow in your ways like the Rebbe

    I can’t believe ,we need MoshiachNow!he was my roommate in brunoy and I could say that he was a real doogmoh Chaye of a bochur as the rebbe wants, always smiling, a lot of ahavas Isroel and he used to learn Torah almost the whole day and at the same to be very humble and sweet. we should see him again very soon with Moshiach ! because we can’t wait anymore! So everyone could take some little thing hachlotoh to make this happen faster, and ask for Hashem bring Moshiach ! Enough is enough!ad mosay !

    I didnt know this the young man but he sounds like a terrific example of a bochur.

    I’m a mother of kana hora a young man of 18, and he means the world to me and I can’t even for a second think of what these parents are feeling. I can’t understand our Gd, it’s like there’s no balance to anything. I send my love, from one jew to another, seriously and sincerely with respect.

    We know Uri since he was little, always lit his surroundings with a special light he had in him.
    Every time he visited his home he was available to study with our children no matter at what time he landed, not a minute to waste, such warmth and midot a true chassid and inspiration.
    Our hearts are with the family . BDE.
