  1. Its so sad. Its my sisters very good friend’s father. I’m at loss for words. I can’t even imagine their pain. May hashem comfort them. BD”E

  2. BD’E the levaya will be at 1 pm on the ground floor of Rabbi Gissingers shul 175 sunset rd. By the way reb dov resided in new england village for the past 20 yrs.

  3. that’s terrible. my father was really good friends with him. it’s a shame he had to go so young. he was an amazing person and he left behind a great family. his poor wife and kids.

  4. I just want to let TLS know that when they post r”l news of someone passing away they are doing more then just a service to let people know, they are also enabling us- and us means people who may not know well or may not know at all the person that has passed away- to be ‘mishtatef betzsoroson shel acheirim’ to feel another yids pain. Take for example this post, as I read the sad news I gave a sigh but as I finished the posts and seeing other people’s pain, I was in tears even though I dont think that I knew the niftar. We all are looking to better ourselves in bein adom lachaveiro and being mishtatef in someones tzaar is for sure a great way, so thank you TLS for making it possible. May you only have good news to post.

  5. This is a sad story. I got to know the niftar this past year. I took him, on a bikur cholim call, to MMC once & I went to his house for a few kumzitzs w/ Misameach. This was a young man, in a lot of pain, who never complained. He would sing along a little when he had the strength. I wanna add one thing: the level of dedication & devotion that R’ Gissinger showed to the niftar during his illness is absolutely incomprehensible. I heard it from the nurses in MMC & I was there when he came to sing & dance w/ us @ a misameach call. May the niftar be a meiliyz Yosher on lakewood Bichlal & on Khal Zichron Yaakov, Bikur Cholim & Misameach Bifrat. Dudi B.

  6. Reb Dov was a gentle, highly intelligent person, with a kind heart who delighted in, and was meticulously shomer, Torah sdorim and mitzvos.

    May his mishpocho be consoled by the memory of the righteous path he always followed, and by his hallmark integrity and kindness.

    This quiet, unassuming person was a real kiddush Hashem in everything he did. Yehi Zichro Boruch.

  7. I am a goy who worked with Dov at Ft. Monmouth for
    some 20 yrs. I retired several years ago but I called Dov (Bern) several times a week just to converse with him. Never did he say an unkind word about anyone.
    He would say from time to time everything happens for the good. I failed to buy him a coke at Bagel Nosh or at Gelbstein’s bakery as I promised so many times. It became a funny point whenever I spoke to him. The one time I had an opportunity I didn’t have enough money and Dov bought his own—-how ashamed I felt.
    I’m sure Dov would forgive me for this.
    I visited him at the Cohen home several weeks before his passing and to liven up things I reminded him to get well, he should have a “hot toddy”. A hot toddy is a cup of tea with some whiskey in it. If it doesn’t work then he should decrease the tea and increase the whiskey. He should continue to do so until he feels better. Bern laugh a little as he remembered the story.
    Strange when I travel in Lakewood, I’ll see a tall, thin,
    man wearing a black fedora and coat and I’ll remember all the goodness in a man who epitomized all that’s good in this world.

    Shalom Dov,

    A goy, Gerry Mullen

  8. Dear Dov,
    May you remember when I first came to Lakewood, I used
    to tell you U-Haul it. I even remember when you put up the
    basketball hoop for me to play basketball. I clearly remember
    when mom’s car broke down on Route 88, you had her car
    towed to Barina.
    Rest In Peace
    Love, Yehoshua
