    Today, Chof Tes Tammuz, marks the first Yartzeit of Rabbi Sholom Mendel Simpson, OB”M, one of the Rebbe’s Mazkirim and director of Merkos L’Inyonei Chinuch. Rabbi Simpson passed away on his ninetieth birthday.

    Rabbi Simpson held many important positions, in addition to being the Rebbe’s secretary and director of Merkos L’Inyonei Chinuch, he was a board member of Aguach and Machane Yisrael, one of the directors of Kupas Rabbeinu and the Rov of the Brighton Beach Jewish Center.

    He was born in New York to Rabbi and Mrs. Eliyahu Simpson. His father was a well-known Chossid, Reb Eliyahu was a Choizer by the Rebbe Rashab and Mazkir of the Frierdiker Rebbe, and his mother, Mrs. Fruma Itta was the daughter of the Chossid Reb Shua Binyomin Lipschitz of Kublitz.

    As a Bochur, he was asked by the Rebbe to join the Mazkirus and be a part of the team writing the letters for the Rebbe.

    He was later tasked with putting together the volumes of Igros Kodesh of the Rebbe.

    He merited that the Rebbe was Mesader Kiddushin at his Chasunah, after first saying a Sicha.
