On 11th of Sivan, 5775 (May 28, 2015), our dear friend, the beloved by all Mordechai Goldin lost his valiantly fought battle with cancer. Only 59 years old, Mordechai left behind his wife Penina and their six children, five of whom are not yet married. To make matters worse, Penina is unable to work due to a stroke-related physical disability.
Mordechai's incredible life inspired and warmed the hearts of many in our community and beyond: the children in his legendary F.R.E.E. Shabbos Club and summer camp; the lucky riders in his school bus; the throngs of bachurim crowded around the Goldins' Shabbos and Yom Tov table; and the smiling kids lined up around his ice cream truck every summer.
No one walked away from an encounter with Mordechai without having been made better for it in some way. It might have been his sunny smile or his friendly pat on the back, his empathetic ear and caring advice, a favor he performed without regard for his own time, or the generosity with which he offered financial help.
Mordechai gave all the time. Now it's our turn to give back to Mordechai by helping his family! Please donate and spread the word!
All proceeds received from this GoFundMe campaign will go to Mordechai’s family. Your donations are 100% tax deductible, graciously facilitated by Rabbi Eli Blokh of Chabad of Rego Park.
