Feel free to share your memories of the niftar.

  1. I was in yeshiva with him. Was a true source of inspiration and courage!
    My deepest condolences to the family!

  2. I’m pained to hear the news!
    Bruch Dayan Emes !
    May his Neshmah have an Aliah and may Hashem console his wife, Parentsand and siblings and give them much Strength at these troubled times.

    I knew Reb Yisroel personally. He was one of holiest men I’ve met in my life.
    A true devoted Chosid of the Rebbe.
    His passion for the Rebbes Mivzohim and his accomplishment in Mivzohim is unparallel.

    He had hundreds of contacts on his phone that he will call daily and weekly to remind them to put on Teffliin.

    He always had a vort or a story of the Rebbe to share.

    Eventhough he was Handicapped Halacha was a priority in his life.

    He always wanted to hear my experiences & stories from Mivzohim.

    He refused to hear anything negative about anyone.

    His two main priorities in his life was Mivzah Tefflin and Moahiach.

    He founded a Tefflin Gemach for Mivzah Tefflin. He would lend Tefflin to People that couldn’t afford or didn’t have Tefflin.

    May his Neshmah have an Aliah, Reb Yisroel O”H Ben Harav Binyomin Shlitah

  3. Im truly devastated to hear that my dear friend , and saviour , Yisrael, has passed away at such a young age. He was like a rock to me through the darkest most difficult period in my life , his emotional support was amazing he was steadfast and I believe his prayers were instrumental in my recovery. I will never forget you , Yisrael.
    Yisrael had such a joyfulness that radiated from his soul and he affected positivity everywhere he went.
    Although he was small and frail in body , his spirit was huge and magnificent and he always stayed humble. I didn’t even know he was a Rebbe because he never did say !
    A light has gone out in the world but heaven’s gained a truly great soul . You baught such love and kindness into the world and your legacy is assured.
    R.I.P Yisrael
    Alav ha – shalom
