    With great sadness we inform you of the passing of Rabbi Sholom Dovber Halevi Popack, OB”M, a longtime resident of the Crown Heights community and one of the first to attend Tomchei Temimim in 770. He passed away on Shabbos, the 27th of Iyar. He was 91-years-old.

    Rabbi Popack was born on the 21st of Adar, 5688 in Barre, Vermont, known as the world’s largest granite quarry. His father, Rabbi Avrohom Popack, OB”M, served as a Rabbi there, as well as the shochet and mohel, at the instruction of the Frierdiker Rebbe.

    Rabbi Sholom DovBer was one of the first students of Yeshiva Tomchei Temimim 770. He was so diligent in his learning and meticulous with keeping the Seder in Yeshiva, that the Frierdiker Rebbe once commented about him, “for such a Tomim it was worth all the hard work.”

    In Adar 1951, he married his wife, Chaya Sarah (nee Rimler) and they merited to have the Rebbe be mesader kiddushin at their Chuppah.

    After their marriage, he served as the Rov of the Kehillah and shochet in McKeesport, Pennsylvania.

    He later moved on Shlichus to Pittsburgh, PA, where he was involved in Chinuch.

    In the 1960’s he moved to Crown Heights, where he was the owner of a stationery and toy shop on the corner of Union Street.

    His entire life, he was known for his great Yiras Shomayim, and his dedication to learning Torah and Avodas Hashem.

    He is survived by his wife, Chaya Sara, and his children, Rabbi Yehuda Popack – Tzfas, ER”Y; Malya Bobrovsky – Toronto, Canada; Rivka Brod – California; Tila Henya Hecht – Eilat, ER”Y; Dena Levin – Palo Alto, CA; and Faiga Matusof – Madison, WI.

    He is also survived by his brother, Rabbi Yitzchok Noach Popack of Miami, FL.
