  1. A genuine simple and heilge yid. What a gem. Loved his family and everyone. Unconditionally.
    No fanfare and glam. Just serving Hashem with love and authenticity. We will miss him😢😢

  2. R’ Zev z’l was a talmid of Rabbi Brog zt’l in Yeshiva Rabbi Chaim Berlin. He was a genuinely nice indvidual and such was mikayim v’ahavta es Hashem Shyehi shem shmayim misahav al yodchah. May his neshoma have an Aliya. To his family, hmokom Yinachem Eschem b’soch shar aveli tzion v’yerushlaim.

  3. It’s been an Honor to call you my big brother, Although miles and distances kept us apart our love, and connection and the everlasting bond that we shared kept us close together. Thank you for all that you taught me, your wisdom that you shared with me, thank you for loving me. My heart is breaking, but so grateful I drove up there to see you last a few weeks back and this Hurricane Ian sure picked bad timing now to interrupt my travel plans back up. Even though I wasn’t physically there for your final moments, I at least was able to tell you I love you one last time and heard you say it back. I’m grateful knowing you’re no longer suffering. I love you and miss you immensely. My heartaches for Tamar and all the kids.

    Your loving sister
