For many years, he was the gabbai in Stuchin, in which capacity he exhibited sensitive to everyone in the kehillah. R’ Yaakov was an incredible ba’al tefillah who would inspire the entire chassidus with his davening. He would daven for the amud during the yomim noraim with incredible heart.
He was an incredible father and grandfather, deeply beloved by his family.
