Mr. Dovid Beenstock, a member of Anash in Manchester, UK, passed away on Tuesday, 20 Tammuz, 5782, after a short illness.

He was 64 years old.

Dovid grew up in Manchester where he became Lubavitch as a teenager. After studying in Kfar Chabad, he moved to Crown Heights and learned the trade of engraving. Dovid married his wife, Mindy Smoller, and returned to Manchester to establish his engraving business. He served the engraving needs for Shuls and Mosdos all over the UK for many years. In addition, Dovid served the engraving needs of the Kotel.

Dovid was an active member of the Anash community of Manchester. He had a chayus for attending shiurim and farbrengens, and maintained daily learning chavrusas. Despite his illness, he continued to go to shul and upkept his learning schedule. Less than two weeks before his passing, Dovid spent the entire shabbas day at a Gimmel Taamuz Farbrengen. His chayus for life and sense of humor will be sorely missed.

He is survived by his wife Mindy and children; Motti – Manchester, UK; Yossi – NY; Rochel Gordon – Tasmania, Australia; Devorah – NY; Yisroel – NY; Chava Lewin – Manchester, UK; Menachem Mendel, Sara and Nesanel – Manchester UK; and many grandchildren.

He is also survived by his sister Ruth Guttentag (Gateshead, UK) and predeceased by his brother Avrohom Yona Beenstock (Yerushalayim).

Levaya and Shiva details to be announced.

The family will be sitting Shiva in Machester, UK.

Devorah will be sitting Shiva in Crown Heights from Thursday. No visitors between 4-7pm.

  1. Boruch dayan hoemes!

    I remember him well from my time in Manchester, his witty comments still bring a smile to my face…

    Mr. Beenstock will be remembered as a staunch member of anash, who religiously attended the farbrengens and other functions.

    A reminder from a time bygone – when “anash” and “kehilah” were not just a service which people benefit from, rather a matter of great value to which all contribute.

    Sincerest nichumim to Mrs. Beenstock and all the family
