    Many bochrim remember him sitting near reb yoel at seder niggunim in the zal upstairs.
    He would start the nighunim and always had some hand motions involved.

    The Rebbe's Gartel

    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 »

    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 really miss Zaidy. He was always so nice, and kind and full of Torah. He even taught me my first Gimara, Elan, Elan, Bama Avarechicha. He also taught me how to play guitar. I hope to bring him lots of Nachas. Love, Yaakov Katina

    Whenever I shared something I learned with Zaidy, he always had something to add. It seamed like he knew all the sofa rim by heart.

    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

    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.

    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.
