Friends and family gathered to mark the Shloshim and begin writing a Sefer Torah in the memory of R’ Shneur Hirsch, a noted baal chesed in Crown Heights, who passed away last month.

The event began with writing the first letters in the Sefer Torah followed by a siyum on Mishnayos. Friends and family spoke about Shneur’s legendary kindness, followed with a keynote address by Rabbi Shais Taub.

Shneur was vice president of the Modway furniture company through which he and his partners employed tens of Lubavitchers around the globe. He helped many families in need and others in a quiet fashion, acquiring for himself the name as a ba’al chessed and a ba’al tzedaka.

Friends recall his yiras shomayim and his quiet way of helping others with no fanfare, who saw his business as a shlichus to show people that you can be frum without compromise and still be successful in corporate America.
