  1. He was a remarkable and unusual friend and valued golden bridges of hope built by even small things. I met him decades ago when he also studied at Sharei Orah – one of the places where he shared his dedication and care for the community around him. He shared short and to-the-point words of what he thought was needed and right, drashim of chesed and gevurah but more chesed – with his old friends and even with “strangers”…(knowing we are all related, with a long and not always easy journey). I wrote this impression when i heard:

    A dark
    and bright
    Searching Light
    Is missing now
    (- Or – at least out of sight)…

    May he Rest in Peace, be remembered for a blessing…
    -fellow student Rose-of-Sharon’s Kin, Uncle of Redemption – (We all will miss him extra on Purim when we speak of his namesake)…
    While a great admirer and follower of the [Lubavicher] Rebbe, want to also share that he was also one of the leading students of the brilliant and illuminating- though perhaps tormented masters of long ago and recent times, Reb Dovid Din of Boro Park, and Reb Nachman of Bratzlav (z”l) – whose contributions and good deeds though many not revealed, are also not forgotten and – may that also be true of our friend who was acquainted with both shadows and shining Unquenchable Light, Mordecai.
    Please take good care (of yourselves too) friends and family … – be comforted along with the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem
