  1. i have great childhood memories of him… we would wait for the schoolbus to yeshiva outside his store and he would give us papers and stickers… bd”e

  2. What a terrible loss to klal yisroel. Yes, I say Klal Yisroel because he was a youth leader in boro park years ago to many of todays outstanding Roshey Yeshiva and manhigim when they were young and vulnerable to outside influences. He imbued within all of them a love for learning torah shmiras Shabbos and shmiras mitzvos. He did that with his story telling lollipops and cupcakes. If only todays baalei batim would learn from him that you don’t have to be a Rosh Yeshiva or a Rav of a shul to effect children positively, all you have to do is care and designate some time and energy towards this goal and a great change will take place to our youth thereby helping to eliminate much of the difficulties we are having with some of the youth. Yehi Zichro Boruch
