BDE: Rabbi Mordechai Feder, OBM

With great sadness we report the passing of Rabbi Mordechai Feder OBM, a long-time resident of Crown Heights known for his open home. He passed away on Wednesday, the 15th of Cheshvan, 5780.

Rabbi Feder, and his wife Rochel obm, were well known for their hospitality in the Crown Heights community for over 30 years.

They first lived on Montgomery Street where many people visited their home for meals and hospitality. They later moved to Sterling Street.

His wife Rochel passed away in 2013.

He is survived by his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, living in Eretz Yisroel, Boro Park, Staten Island and New Sqaure.

The levaya will take place tonight in New Square.

    BDE! Rabbi Feder will be an incredible meilitz yoshor for the world for Moishiach NOW! Words are insufficient to describe the holiness, kindness, compassion, caring, knowledge, and love of Rabbi Feder. He and his wife, z”l, hosted me every Shabbos and yom tov for nine years, except for five summers I spent as an out-of-town camp counselor. Two of those years were on the Shabbasois away from yeshiva in Morristown, so I slept over. After that, they walked with my bride around me at our chupah and continued hosting us for meals for three more years until we had to move away in 1990.
    Their devotion to their guests was legendary, regardless of how challenging it could be at times.
    They have been and will always be carved deeply in my heart and soul and I’ll always have their shining, smiling faces in front of me.
