• Rabbi Shmuel (Moule) Azimov, 69

    With great sadness we report the passing of Rabbi Shmuel (Moule) Azimov OBM, the Rebbe’s Shliach to Paris, France, who spearheaded the Chabad “French Revolution” and brought back thousands of Jews to their heritage ● Full Story, Levaya Details

    With great sadness we report the passing of Rabbi Shmuel (Moule) Azimov OBM, the Rebbe’s Shliach to Paris, France, at the age of 69, after suffering a stroke last night.

    Rabbi Azimov was born to Rabbi Chaim Hillel Azimov OBM, director of the Chabad Cheder in Paris. In 5728 he married Mrs. Basya OBM, daughter of Rabbi Bentzion Shemtov OBM, and a few years later, in 5733, he was sent by the Rebbe to Paris to direct the Chabad activities under the umbrella of Chabad Youth Organization, joining the existing Chabad Shluchim in the city.

    At the Yechidus before leaving on Shlichus, the Rebbe told him: “You will have tremendous success, much more than can be imagined.” During one of their visits to New York, Mrs. Azimov met the Rebbetzin Chaya Mushka, who told her: “We plowed and sowed, now it’s your job to go and reap the fruits.”

    During his 42 years on Shlichus, he pefrsonally guided thousands of Jews back to their heritage, caring personally for all their needs, from jobs to Shiduchim for them and their children; established close to 100 Chabad Houses in the Paris region, and spearheaded the Chabad “French Revolution.”

    After recovering from a a debilitating stroke in 5758, he delegated some of his day-to-day responsibilities to his sons, and dedicated his time to bringing down more Shluchim to Paris, tripling the existing number of Chabad institutions.

    His wife Mrs. Basya Azimov, passed away in 5772 at the age of 67.

    He is survived by his children, Rabbi Mendel Azimov, Mrs. Esther Morosow and Rabbi Levi Azimov, all Shluchim in Paris.

    He is survived by his siblings, Mrs. Chaya Sarah Steinsaltz (Jerusalem); Mrs. Raizel Raskin (Shlucha to Morocco); Rabbi Moshe Nissan Azimov (Jerusalem); Mrs. Esther Matusof (Shlucha to Toulouse, France); Mrs. Devora ; Mrs. Sterna Sanowicz (Shlucha in Los Angeles, CA).

    The Levaya will take place tomorrow in Jerusalem, Israel, with thousands of his students and Mekurovim expected to attend.
