Boruch Dayan Hoemes: Avrohom Chaim Feldman, 13, OBM

With great shock, sadness and pain we inform you of the sudden and untimely passing of Habochur Hatomim Avrohom Chaim Feldman, OBM, a young student in Oholei Torah. He was 13 years old.

Avrohom Chaim is the son of R’ Mendel and Kaila Rivkah Feldman, and had just completed the 7th grade. He was set to begin the 8th grade this coming school year.

His father is well known for taking care of Empire Shteibel and its Mikvah with dedication.

Following in his father’s footsteps, young Avraham Chaim spent lots of his free time helping to take care of the Ksav Sofer Shul nearby. He would also organize Minyahim for Tehillim in the Besht.

“He was a breath of fresh air” said Rabbi Levi Borenstein, his 7th grade teacher. “He had Yiras Shomayim and tremendous Kabbolas Ol. He knew Gemara by heart and was one of the 11 students who were tested by Rabbi Gurary of Chevra Shas at the end of the year.”

“He was well liked by his fellow students, and knew how to have fun as well. He truly excelled in being diligent, and worked extra hard in his learning. He was an unbelievable talmid,” said Rabbi Borenstein.

The Levaya will take place today, Thursday, at 2:00pm in front of 770, after which it will continue on to Old Montefire Cemetery in Queens for burial.

      The grandson of my special friend Mordechai Dovod Z”L.
      We cannot fathom why. Sometime there is a child who is an adult doing adult things naturally. His Tikkun only required his Bar Mitzva and helping others in a Chassidisher Millieu . Obviously , since he didn’t suffer his Tikkun is complete. It is we who must learn from him , emulate him and follow his example . He needs no more completion. We who remain should take heart and learn the value of each second and each opportunity with thanks and enthusiasm. My heart goes out to your family . More than anyone I know Reb Mordechai Dovid meant it sincerely . It’s obvious that this child was the same and more . Yehi zichro Boruch , and he will be a Mailitz Yosher for you and all of us. Although the pain is incalculable may his continued memorials done in his name bring comfort to you in the future.

    I am so upset to hear this tragedy. My heart is breaking for his parents, whose Chassidishkeit and examples are legendary, and siblings. What can one say, except that Avrohom A”H fulfilled his tafkid and now sits by the Rebbeim and the Kisei Shel Emet. May we not hear any more tsur.

    This is the third untimely passing in our community this week. I propose we all add in torah and mitzvos , each person according to their capabilities. We should also say an extra chapter of tehillim.

    To the families: so sorry to hear about this tragic bad news. May god comfort all the mourners.

    Picaboo Shimon’s info and Miriam’s question are of utmost importance – are these cases linked in any way ?

    It is only human nature to wonder why a boy of only 13 should leave our world so suddenly. Miriam, sweet lady, I wonder too if he had been ill. I am sorry that someone here felt the need to respond so coolly to your question. Prayers to the family and the community.
