    The Mochkin family announced at the shloshim that in honor of Reb Leibel, A”H, it will be supporting the work of Young Jewish Leaders (www.yjlnyc.com/services). YJL is an initiative founded by Rabbi Mendy Wolf and Oholei Menachem, supporting and coordinating the Friday Mivtzoyim Routes whereby bochurim from Oholei Menachem go out throughout Manhattan to share a Dvar Torah, put on Tefillin, give the gift of Challah to every one of their “clients” and distribute Neshek. The family requests that all donations in the name of Reb Leibel A”H be directed to YJL (www.yjlnyc.com/services).

    At the Shloshim, a video was shown that demonstrated the tangible impact these bochurim have on the people they visit on their Friday Mivtzoyim Route.

    A Memento was distributed by the Shloshim that featured articles in various publications detailing some of Reb Leibel’s exploits and some interesting little known documents recently made available by the JOINT, highlighting their work in assisting the great escape from Russia of Chabad Chassidim in 1946 and the list of people that escaped Russia, in large part due to the efforts of Reb Leibel A”H.
