.....מענדל זוכט שוין נישט מיט וועמען צו לייגן תפילין
הבחור התמים מנחם מענדל Oberlander passed away today in Vienna after a very lengthy illness. He was the son of יבלחט"א the very Choshu've Shluchim to Budapest Rav Boruch and his Rebbetzin Oberlander (nee' Lazar.) Mendel was a boy who did not allow his illness to slow him down or get in the way of what needed to be done. He sat and learned בהתמדה ובשקידה whenever he could, and when not in front a sefer he did what he could to find Yidden and bring them closer to G-d, his Torah and the Mitzvos. I say this because I know this to be the fact. May the Aybershter console the family and all of Klal Yisroel.See what we wrote about Mendel and his activities over a year ago, about he was Mechayev all of us despite what we see as difficulties.
