    I can remember when Menachem Kranz had to leave camp for the levaya, it all seems like yesterday.

    they become Shluchim and Shluchos

    Many of the teenagers from Detroit, S. Diego and Richmond whom Rabbi Kranz o’h was mekarev to Yiddishkeit are today prominent shluchim and shluchos throughout the United States, and some of their children are already following that path as well. He was truly a giant and an innovator in the shlichus of the Rebbe and left an indelible mark on everyone he ever met.

    The story is a little different,Rabbi Hershel Fogelman had met with the head of the Jewish community in Danielson Ct and Rabbi Fogelman arranged classes and visits to Danielson Ct. One of the shluchim that he sent from Worcester was Rabbi Yisroel Gordon
    Yankel Krantz went to Lubavitch at the urging of Rabbi Fogelman

    Rabbi Cunin is wearing a Yechi Yarmulkeh even then and the book in front of them is the SECRET code, if anyone remembers that book.

    I think the 2 rabbis were Rabbis Fogelman and Gordon but i dont think they were bochurim at the time

    He was a tall, towering figure, both b’gashmius and b’ruchnius, a mashpia to younger bochurim, an innovator, thought outside the box and had the chush to relate to all types of people.

    My wife and I were mekariv to Yiddishkeit because of Rabbi Kranz. We now have ,bli eyin h’rah, four married childrn, 24 grand children, and 4 great grandchildren. There are days when I feel a shock realizing he is gone from us.

    He provided my Jewish education by teaching me and my friends on Sunday mornings. I very much appreciate the Jewish learning he provided.
