    With great sadness we regret to inform you of the passing of Rabbi Shalom Jacobson, OB”M. Rabbi Jacobson has been a longtime member of the Crown Height community, and was one of the members of Vaad L’Hafotzas Sichos.

    He was 74-years-old.

    He was born to Simon and Frieda Yaakovshvili in the Germany in the Poking displaced persons camp.

    As a teenager, his father had learned in Lubavitch, in the first Tomchei Tmimim. After his marriage, he was exiled to Siberia following his arrest for spreading Judaism in the USSR.

    During the ‘Great Escape’ of Lubavitcher Chassidim to Poland in 5706, he escaped with his family, and relocated to Poking with the other chassidim. It was there that Shalom was born.

    Shalom became involved with Vaad L’hafotzas Sichos, which had been founded by R’ Bentche Shemtov to prepare, publish and distribute the Rebbe’s sichos.

    He married Faigel Springer in Eretz Yisroel in 5733. At the farbrengen on the Shabbos preceding their wedding, the Rebbe called him up and a bottle of mashke to the chosson, requesting he deliver it to Israeli President Zalman Shazar during a farbrengen marking his birthday in Yerushalayim. Ahead of the wedding, the Rebbe edited sichos in advance to be ready for the time that Rabbi Jacobson would be in Eretz Yisroel.

    Over the next decades, Rabbi Jacoboson served as a member of Vaad L’hafotzas Sichos, and as a member of Otzar Hachassidim which prepared works of Chassidus for publication. Rabbi Jacobson took an active role in the printings of Tanya in various places where Jews live following the Rebbe’s call to do so, and was appointed to assign a number to each Tanya printed.

    In recent years, Rabbi Jacobson served as the mashpia in the Ahavas Moshe Shul in Crown Heights.

    He is survived by his wife Faigel and their children Levi Jacobson – Toronto, Ontario; Frieda Shusterman – Indianapolis, Indiana; Simon Jacobson – Charlotte County, Florida; Doba Webb – Midtown Manhattan, New York; Chana Steinmetz – Crown Heights; Chaim Moshe Jacobson – Crown Heights; Menachem Mendel Jacobson – Atlanta and Shmuel Jacobson, and grandchildren.
