Boruch Dayan Hoemes: Reb Leibel Dubov, 91, OBM

With sadness we inform you of the passing of Rabbi Yehuda Leib Dubov OBM, a longtime resident of Crown Heights whom the Rebbe would dispatching to far flung locations to perform Brissim. He was 91 years old.

He was the son of Reb Itche Dubov, the noted Rov of Manchester, England, who was known for being the first to accept the Rebbes Nesius. His famous saying “Chevre, mir hoben ah Rebbe” [people, we have A Rebbe] after he received three answers from the Rebbe without him verbalizing the questions.

He noted as a Mohel, who the Rebbe often dispatched to far flung locations to serve as a Mohel. Once by a Farbrengen in 1976 the Rebbe signaled Reb Leibel and gave him Mezonos and instructed him to go make a Bris for the grandchild of Reb Yisroel Aryeh Leib, the Rebbe’s brother. The Rebbe also personally paid the expenses of the trip.

He is survived by his wife Chava and their children, Rabbi Kalman dubov (S. Antonio TX), Rabbi Yossi Dubov (Morristown, NJ), Zlatie Ehrenstein (Tzfas Israel), Chaya Cherna Blau (Tzfas, Israel), Rabbi Mendy Dubov (Ramat Beit Shemesh, Israel), Rabbi Ari Dubov (Brooklyn, NY), Rabbi Sholom Ber Dubov (Orlando, FL), Rochel Ben Ezra (Kfar Chasidim, Israel), Rabbi Dovid Dubov (Princeton, NJ), Rabbi Sender Dubov (Crown Heights), Rabbi Nissan Dubov (Crown Heights), Ms Chanie Dubov (Crown Heights), and Rabbi Zalman Dubov (Crown Heights).

The Levaya will take place Monday, 9:00am at Shomrei Hadas and passing by 770 at around 9:45am.

      Not true, after Hachosid harav Rivkin passed away in 1951, reb Yitzchok became the Rov of his Shul Ada’s Yisroel, till his passing.
      Reb Yitzchok was Zoche to take care of the Tahara of the Rebbes brother, and the Chose Reb Leibel to be Mohel for his great nephew in 1975.

    IT IS NOT TRUE WHAT THE ARTICLE SAYS THAT REB ITCHE DUBOV WAS THE FIRST ONE TO ACCEPT THE REBBE’S NESIUS, IT WAS HARAV AVRAHAM SENDER NEMTZOV, (HE IS THE FATHER IN LAW OF RABBI, DR. NISSAN MINDEL WHO WAS THE PREVIOUS REBBE AND THE REBBE’S PERSONAL SECRETARY), HE STOOD UP ON THE TABLE AT THE FIRST YUD SHEVAT FARBRENGEN AND SAID OUT LOUD: MIR HOBEN AH REBBE, AND HE MADE THE BERACHA OF “SHEHECHIYANU”!!!

    ok, but it is harav avraham sender nemtzov who ACTUALLY did it at the first yud shevat farbrengen in the small shul upstairs in 770, he even made a bracha, and he did it then because that is when the rebbe OFFICIALLY accepted the leadership!!!!

    with all due respect, Rabbi Nemztov did after the full year and after the Rebbe began the Maamor that marked his acceptance of the neisus.

    Rabbi Dubov began his efforts in middle of the Shiva (1950)
