דער "נעוולער אינגל" איז ניטא
Reb Meir Itkin passes away at the age of 96
It's tough to really bemoan the fact when a person passes away at an advanced age like that, but when it comes to the last links to a bygone generation the pain is much greater, as is the loss. Reb Meir was the epitome of a Neveler Chossid who lived every single day with G-d, Torah, and Rebbe. There was no retiring at age 75, and he never felt that he had done enough already, even at that age. In America that concept is foreign to most people - I mean to American-born Jews - we tend to be content with what we've accomplished, unless it comes to making money.
