Let Us Learn Mishnayos For R' Stanley Gartenstein
Dear Friends שיחיו,
We mourn the passing of a beloved man who davened with us for many years.
The honorable Judge, Reb Stanley Gartenstein, Zecharia ben Dov Aryeh ז"ל, was an active and important member of our Shul.
He was a wonderful Baal tefilla, a Baal Koreh and a great Talmid Chochom. He celebrated a Siyum Hashas (Bavli) with us. (Perhaps even a second on Yerushalmi as well.)
Reb Zecharia was a giant light of spiritual inspiration and well as a great source of wisdom and knowledge to anyone who needed guidance.
In addition to his vast knowledge and expertise in Torah studies, Halacha and Mitzvos, he was a search engine of knowledge in everything.
Mostly, he was a great friend of the Shul and a most beloved, trusted friend to all who came in contact with him.
He leaves behind five children. His youngest, his daughter Basya שתחי', grew up in our Shul.
Perhaps we could learn Mishnayos in his honor and memory. Maybe we could complete Seder Moed. See below. Please write back.
Reb Zecharia’s bright light, his beautiful smile, his friendship, wisdom and guidance will forever be in our hearts and on our minds.
He was Niftar on the 6th of Iyar. May Hashem console the family.
