He was a special person with a beautiful chassidishe family.
May Hashem shower brochas upon them and help them through this time.

This is incredibly sad! Shimon was soft spoken, had a gentle tone and a pure נשמה. Rebbe, Lubavitch, Chassidus was all he cared about. He lived it in the most unassuming way – he knew when to talk and more importantly when to listen. He will be missed אוי מה היה לנו

מה נאמר ומה נדבר I for one have no words to really express my feelings at this moment, it is if someone has taken my heart out, my big question is Why Why how can the al mighty leave יתומים like that. Shimon was a true Chosid in every area and on all levels, to see how he reacts to his wife and his children was inspirational, he was around to help his brothers in law and his sisters in law when they were children loosing their father at a young age (His father in law O”h) Shocking is an… Read more »

In his quiet unassuming way, Shimon o”h, was a giant of a manIn every way!
His kiddos and eidelkeit were second to none
He was the best father and husband, always there for his family
What a loss, they, and all of us as his community, have suffered!
May Hashem bring Moshiach NOW! PLEASE!
the pain is far to great for anyone to bear

Rabbi Potash z”l once gave me a private class 22 years ago.
I still remember the Sicha that we learnt.
He made a huge impact on me.
May he have a lichtigen gan Aiden.

Oy Reb Shimon!

He was a giant in humbleness and genuity. Such a special person whom always showed a smile. He’ll always be missed. His dedication at the Shabbos morning children Minyonim saw no bounds and related to the children with remarkable empathy and care. We really love you R’ Shimon. May you continue to see tremendous Nachas from your very special children.

No, no, no, no, no!!!!! This cannot be!!!!!
Guest
No, no, no, no, no!!!!! This cannot be!!!!!

We met this wonderful, fine family years ago when they visited Crown Heights. OY vey! This cannot have happened: no, no, no!!!

There are no adequate words. My heart goes out to Rebbetzin Emmanuelle and the kinderlach.

He also did much work for Tzivos Hashem in London! This horrible news is impossible to process right now….
