  1. Baruch dayan haemes!
    The suffering this one man endured should be a kapparah for all of klal yisroel and may he be a meilitz yosher for his almana and young children with all of klal yisroel and may we hear no more tzarros! Tichle shana vkillosaha tocheil shana uvirchosecha

  2. My husband was a good friend of Avi’s and this was a man who suffered so much and never let anyone know. He always had a smile – even when he was in obvious pain. He was so happy for everyone else . Baruch Dayan Ha’emes Avi – you affected all of us and made us better people beacause of it.

  3. i got to spend some time at his home on this past purim in all my years i never had such a great time and watching him was something i will never forget his smile never left his face , thanx for changing my life you will be missed!

  4. I am mamesh numb from shock & sadness. This was Avi’s 4th bout w/ the machleh. I was just by tehillim @ OM Thurs night. It was so erenst. I really, trully thought he would beat it again. This is terrible news that ny dear, wonderful friend, R’ Avi, is no longer among us. May H-shem give his wonderful family strength to get through this. Yehi Zichro Boruch. Dudi B.

  5. This is terrible news!!! He was a real tzaddik who always accepted what Hashem gave him…always replied “Boruch Hashem” when asked how he was doing! He was a truly great man and the son of a truly great man (HoRav Shlomo Zweibak shlita R”M in Yeshivas zichron Meyir Moutaindale)He will be very very missed and never forgotten!!!!BDE

  6. His shver is from lakewood, rabbi reuven lefton who is big talmid chochom. His father is Rebbe in mountaindale, who is also a big talmid chochom. He was a selfless person. Always helping others.

  7. I can’t believe it! Avi was so strong-he kept fighting his machlah with a smile.
    He was a loving, caring,friendly person.He was a great man, yet nobody was too small for him-he made all those around him feel important.
    May Avi be a maylitz yosher for his family and gontz klal yisroel.

  8. It was just a few months ago that you surprised me by calling me to notify me that you were coming to my house to write an ois in a Sefer Torah. Your situation was not going to stop you from mikayem a mitzvah. Your letter posted on this web for all to make shalom spearheaded many to be mochel others.

    May you be a me eta hosted for your family, friends and all of klal yisroel.
