  1. I am seriously heartbroken over the loss of my old time friend. Binyomin had sterling middos, a great attitude, he knew everything about everything, and was musical to boot.
    If I’m not mistaken he’s one of the last RV hatzolah members.
    Binyomin I love you.

  2. Most of his selfless acts will go unknown but he touched many people in many ways and wads always a bastion of chizuk for those who needed it and always putting a smile on people’s facws5

  3. He was my sons math teacher for 7th & 8th grade in YOB yeshiva of Brooklyn. Was loved by parents & students. Had an excellent shprach with the boys.
