A new Sefer Torah is being commissioned in memory of Mendel Gutnick a”h who passed away on Lag B’Omer. His mother, Mrs. Sara Gutnick wrote about her son Mendel and the new Torah on a social media post.
A message from Mrs. Sara Gutnick
I lost my precious Mendel on Lag B’omer.
Mendel was a true Mentch who had a heart of gold. He has a sincere and pure soul. When he would meet you, his face would light up with his beautiful smile. Mendel always showed true gratefulness and appreciation. He was very generous and loved to give.
He was very sensitive and had keen insight to the pain of others. When you spoke to him, he truly listened. Mendel wanted everyone to be happy and would do what he could, to bring peace. Those who were lucky to know him, knew that Mendel shined in his exemplary middos and Ahavas Yisroel.
I feel the connection of Mendel’s passing on Lag B’omer, the very day we celebrate the Rashbi and his tremendous Ahavas Yisroel, as a testament to Mendel’s passion and caring for another Yid.
With a couple of days to Shavuos, I would be very comforted, if we can please write a Sefer Torah for our precious Mendel, written in his memory.
