    I remeber it always amazing me to see him walking around Crown Heights without a cane, despite the fact that he was over 100 years old.

    Rabbi Chitrik was an amazing story with first-hand accounts of what happened in Lubavitch.

    May his Neshomah be a meilitz Yosher for all of klal Yisrael.

    I heard that at a “certain point in time” he said ” Der Communism is teyt!
    He was not a fool thats for sure.
