    I’m very sorry to hear this news. I was the Friday night guest of the Kesselman family every week between Nissan and Elul, Tof Shin Lamed (1970) as a yeshiva bucher in Kfar Chabad. At the time I was a complete neophyte to Yiddishkeit. They were very kind to me and I am greatly indebted to them.
