My daughter is marrying אי״ה his Grandson, Schwartz, on Sunday. This would’ve been the only grandfather by the simcha, but now I see it wasn’t meant to be!

The Rebbe's Gartel
Guest
The Rebbe's Gartel

He didn’t buy the Rebbetzin’s car. But one time when the Rebbe’s car was broken, Rabbi Krinsky borrowed Velvel’s car to drive the Rebbe. Another story: Years ago, Velvel was having a gartel made by hand. The woman who made the gartel told Velvel that she had made a gartel on order for the Rebbe. She wanted to give the Rebbe a gift, so she made a second gartel. But the Rebbe thanked them, and said he would only would take the one he had ordered. She showed Velvel the gartel and he bought it. It was a very wide… Read more »

To the Glick Family (commemt #7)

Thank you for your comment and Mazal Tov on the wedding. I wish I would be meeting you there, but as you said, it wasn’t to be.Velvel loved all his grandkids, but was especially close to Shulem Menachem, the first grandchild born and his “Chassidishe nachas.” His mother Yehudis, was always very frum and edel, even as a child. She and Yoni have been so good to us and were a tremendous help to Velvel, especially towards the end.

Beautiful tribute to my father. We sang to him in his final hours – all his favorite songs. Even though he was only conscious he still used his hands to gesture his pleasure at hearing his children and grandchild sing to him. He will be dearly missed! BDE.

I would ask my father, “Tatty how are you doing?” And he’d often answer, “Now that I’m talking to you I’m doing great!”. He made us feel so treasured.

Seperating the Physical reality from the Spiritual

When my father was not feeling well I asked him how he was feeling. He answered, “BGashmiyos not so good, B’Ruchniyos I’m doing great.” The pain of his physical body did not stop his ability to feel great spiritually. What a beautiful lesson!

First Yarzeit

First Yarzeit

Tonight is the first Yarziet of my beloved father. So many emotions. So much reflection. My father was a most devoted father and doting grandfather. His love and enthusiasm for Hashem, for learning, and for Mitvos was at the essance of his being. His passion for music is a gift that has been passed on tho his family. He is missed so deeply.

The first Yarzeit seuda was so special – the whole family coming together – the Rubinoff’s and the Gottleib’s. My father was such a special person with so many dimensions to him. He left such wonderful impressions on so many people and had tramendous effects on their lives.

My Cousin From Judy

Velvel was my little cousin……He was a beautiful baby, always smiling and happy and a joy to his grandparents and other relatives. I think he adored his maternal grandfather the most…the guy who probably spoiled him and would tell him “don’t tell your mother.” I’m just sorry that since 1965,when I left the NY area, I didn’t get to see him much at all…….He loved my Dad (his uncle). I will always remember him as being a joyous soul.

A Though on Cemeteries

A Though on Cemeteries

I used to think that a cemetery is a creepy place. When I went to visit the Lubavitch Rebbes Kever with my father when I was engaged he told me he sees the cemetery as a peaceful place. I asked him why? He said became these peopls finished their mission on this world. That has really changed my perspective on death.

5th Yarzeit
Guest
5th Yarzeit

Yesterday was Tatty’s 5th Yarzeit. I went to the Kever with Yehudis and Yaakov. When we arrived we were told the cemetery was about to close and we have to leave! Fortunately Malky was leaving as we arrived and informed us that there is a separate entrance by the Rebbe’s Kever. It turned out to be a wonderful, spiritual experience. We davened Mincha and heard Krias Shofer by the Chabad house before going to the Rebbes Kever. Yehudis met an old friend. Then we davened by the Rebbe’s Kever. I davened for family and friends and asked Hashem to illuminate… Read more »
