Harav Pinchas Dovid Horowitz, Bostoner-Chuster Rebbe, Zy”a

I knew Harav Pinchas Dovid Horowitz, Bostoner-Chuster Rebbe, zy”a, for decades, first seeing him in Brookline (Boston) in the beis medrash of his father, Harav Levi Yitzchok Horowitz, the Bostoner Rebbe of Boston-Har Nof, zy”a.

When his son, Harav Yechiel Mechel Horowitz, shlita, the Rav of Khal Chassidim in Highland Park, N.J., started the first Chassidic shtiebel in town, his father became a frequent presence, showing his love and support.

His smile and cheerfulness, never missing to greet, made him a very approachable Rebbe.

The chizuk he gave, I never forgot.

A father for his family, but also for his community and beyond.

A Rebbe and a remarkable man.

May his memory be for a blessing.
