  1. dubby and avi will be going to eretz yisroel and rebbetzin chaya was there already whoever knows her will be big chizuk if can go to levaya there to be with her

  2. Rabbi Small was an incredible inspiration to me and my family, always providing warm hospitality, deep insights and a constant love of Jews and Israel. Our time with Rabbi Small and the words he shared with us will never be forgotten. Our thoughts and love are with the family.

  3. He was a very very special Uncle to me. He cared very much about everyone in the family. He was a true Rodef Sholom. He was a humble person who was not petty at all. He made it his business to know how his nephews and nieces were doing, and he would constantly see the good in people that had at least some goodness in them. They dont make ’em like him any more! What a loss!

  4. oy this is so sad Harav Michel Small zt”l was one of the people tht were there when my grandfather was niftar and he was such a support to my mothers family. this is really a true loss for us
