  1. Rabbi Hyman (Baruch as he allowed me to call him) was a kind & knowledgeable individual. I spent many an afternoon going through watches with him at his store, Crown Antiques. He taught me much and was a generous & supportive person with me & my family…I will miss him & remember him fondly. My condolences to his family. Kieran Lynch

  2. My dear friend has passed. Such a gentle, kind and devoted man’s departure is a loss to all of us. May his memory be eternal.

  3. We were friends for many year. I first met him many years ago at a flea market. I worked with him. I visited him this past spring at his store, talking about “old times”. He always told me to
    write out my thoughts, so I am doing so here. He was a special person always offering advice. It has been a blessing to be his friend. Healthy & Happy Holidays & New Year to all.
