BDE: R’ Mendel (Manny) Davidovitch, z”l
We are saddened to inform you of the passing of Reb Menachem Mendel, a native of Carpathia, who lived a life of devotion to Yiddishkeit, despite challenge and suffering. He was 74 years old.
Manny and his siblings were born to their father, Reb Avrohom, in the Carpathian town of Apsha. While many left from there in the aftermath of the war, the Davidovitch’s remained there—and clung steadfastly to Yiddishkeit
Like so many who were in those regions during the 1950’s, 60’s, and 70’s, the family was close to the Ribnitzer Rebbe, who strengthen the small community to hold on to their faith.
They recall traveling to the rebbe for Yomim Tovim in Ribnitz.
Arriving in America, Reb Manny settled in Boro Park, and worked hard as a carpenter. He Davened at the Bucharester Shul, led by Rav Deutch, the Bucharester Rebbe.
He was beloved by all, and was known as a good person who loved to help. He sadly did not merit children, and anyone who can give tzeddakah, or learn Torah, l’iluy nishmas Reb Menachem Mendel ben Avrohom, will surely be performing a chessed shel emes.
The Levaya will take place at Shomrei Hadas at 11:00 this morning.
Yehi Zichro Baruch
