Hundreds Attend Levaya of Beloved Bus Driver

Hundreds of Lubavitcher Yeshiva Students lined Albany Avenue and hundreds more stood outside 770, all participating in the Levaya of R’ Mordechai Goldin, OBM, a devoted husband and father, a dear friend, and dedicated bus driver.

Serving many years as a bus driver for the children learning in Lubavitcher Yeshiva on Crown Street, R’ Mordechai has the z’chus of the hundreds of children who rode his bus every morning to school to study Torah.

Many of those students participated in his Levaya Friday morning, lining up outside the Yeshiva on Crown and Albany.

Earlier, the Levaya passed by 770, then F.R.E.E. on President Street, where he was a mispalel.

The Kevurah took place at the Old Montefiore Cemetery in Queens, NY.

    I am certain that R’ Mordechai, the bus driver, will be taking these beautiful pictures of all the young talmidim at his levaya straight before the beis din shel maaloh and they will be mailitz yoisher for him and for all of klal yisroel.

    Many years ago I was a camper at Free for Russians — Mordechai would stop a frisbee or Football game to make sure that a boy who dropped his kippa would put it back on. I was very impressed by this and it left a lifelong impact on me.

    He also was a wonderful bus driver in bnos menachem for a few years. One of the best. Always smiling and sharing jokes with everyone. He had a really huge heart and will be greatly missed!

    what a great man, of Midos toivos!
    I once gave him a small favor, and he was my best friend, to me and my children, for the next 20 years.

    The crown heights community lost a great man. I’m sure we’ll be hearing stories of the many who’s lives were changed by him. Not that he had to change peoples lives, but he took pride in helping people especially the children he worked with over the years. He had big plans for this summer but sadly Hashem had other plans for him. tnzbh

    Just to see the hundreds of talmidim that loved him makes one cry. Thank you Rabbi Simpson for giving these Chayolim a lifetime lesson in hakoras hatov and ahavas Yisroel.

    There so many shabbosim that I sat at the Goldin’s shabbos table, that I can’t count. Truthfully I had no where else to go. The kindness and hospitality knew no bounds. I’ll miss you Mordechai. R.I.P.

    I’ll never forget the bond he had with my son to the extent when we saw him drive by he would always stop and wave even though my son went to another yeshiva
    one day i was walking home it was raining and Mordechai stopped his bus to offer me a ride I declined as i was almost home and I had a stroller
