  1. Truly one of Lakewood’s best has now left us. A real אדם גדול. A man with a huge heart of gold who always had a beautiful smile and good word of chizuk for every person. A one man Chesed and Tzedakah organization in the days before Lakewood was flooded with organizations. Rav Dov….You know what you need to do for Lakewood up there…

  2. He always had a smile and good word for me, his Rebbetzin’s a”h student. Together they built klal yisroel up one positive interaction at a time. What a tremendous loss. And their simchas hachaim was palpable. May the family have a nechama.
