  1. I don’t believe it. Feefee???? I’m mammish shaking. Was my classmate.Nebach nebach nebach is all I can say. Had the greatest sense of humor and always smiling. Can’t believe it. Just can’t believe it.

  2. This is so sad. I know of the family in Toronto. Baruch Dayan Emes. May Hashem comfort the family and may He take away all the bad things happening.

  3. yes it is his younger brother. a friend of everyone he met. my best friend and i’m sure everyone else thinks the same about him. he did everything for everyone else without even thinking about himself. everyone has a story about him. i was with him long enough i could write a book. one thing we could all learn from he did everything quietly didnt want anyone to find out who did it………. fifi we will miss you dearly

  4. I cant even believe that I’m writing this post. Fifi was the most loving guy and wasn’t able to harm a fly . Always had a funny word to keep you going. We were in Yeshiva Gedolah of Toronto. May Hashem be with all his friends, wife and family get through this very though time. (Mayer, we feel your Tzar and all your friends are all with you. Keep strong!!) May this be the last Kapara before Mashaich and we will rejoice together in Yerushalaim . Amen

  5. Baruch dayan emes so much young people are dieing nebach we need mochiach alredy how much longer can we wait every day another tzoro that yungerman was not even married a year may he be a maletz yoher for gantz klal yisroel

  6. Fifi was the sweetest of the sweet. He was such a special person, someone who put everyone before himself in such an unassuming way. A big big loss for the entire Klal Yisrael. He was a true chaver of mine and I will miss him terribly. I was zoche to be in shiur with him in Ner Yisrael and the Mir. May Hashem comfort his wonderful mishpacha, his devoted aishes chayil and all his friends from all over. We should hear of no more tzaros. Boruch dayan haemes

  7. I would like to remind everyone about TOW – Tehillim on Wheels. Whenever you find yourself waiting for someone in a car (with the engine off), for example waiting to pick someone up from a train, waiting as your car is filled with gasoline, waiting at a drive in bank window, waiting for a school bus, etc., take out your tehillim and start from perek aleph. After a few weeks, you may have finished the entire sefer tehillim. Keep in mind people who need a refuah shelaima, parnasa, shalom bayis, nechama and strength due to tragedies, protection from harm (Israeli soldiers), even pray for those who are traveling that they should arrive safely. The needs of Klal Yisrael are endless. We need Hashem’s rachamim every second of the day. If we show Hashem that we are concerned for our fellow Jews’ well being during every free second that we have – even those whom we do not know personally – we can hope that Hashem will have rachamim on all of us every second of the day.

  8. Boruch&Lisa,
    The entire Kehilla shares with you in your pain.May you know of no more sorrow in your life.
    May Hashem comfort Tova during this very difficult time.

    Your Chaverim
