It is with great sadness that Matzav.com reports the passing of Rabbi Nochum Dick z”l.
Reb Nochum was the longtime director of Sinai Academy, serving as president of the Board of Directors of Sinai.
Reb Nochum was a devoted adherent of Rav Elya Svei zt”l, under whose inspired leadership he devoted his efforts to Sinai. Reb Nochum always vividly remembered the time Rav Elya was presented with a volume of “Oros Me’ofel,” a compilation of chiddushei Torah written by Sinai students and alumni. Rav Elya had tears in his eyes as he choked up and said, “Who would have imagined that we would be zoche to see such peiros?”
This vision remained dear to Reb Nochum throughout the years, as he directed Sinai Academy, a yeshiva high school for immigrant youth with little or no knowledge of their Jewish heritage. At Sinai, the rabbeim take their talmidim under their wings and introduce them to a life of Torah and Yiddishkeit. It’s not unusual for Sinai talmidim to continue their learning in yeshivos gedolos both in America and in Eretz Yisroel, Many even go on to become leaders or mentors to the next generation of Sinai students.
With tremendous dedication and utmost humility, Reb Nochum carried forth his role in this remarkable mosad.
Reb Nochum is survived by his rebbetzin, Mrs. Judi Dick, their children, and grandchildren following in his ways.
Yehi zichro boruch.
