    Dr. Yitzchok Block passed away on Erev Sukkos and his Levaya, a quiet and hurried affair, occurred just before Shkiah on Erev Yom Tov. The thousands who would have attend the Levaya to accompany this extraordinary Chossid on his final journey were unable to attend.

    With no Shivah to speak of, those who would have shared memories and offered consolation were unable to do so.

    The Block family therefore invites friends, admirers, mushpaim, students and acquaintances of Dr. Block, OB”M, to a Shloshim memorial on Wednesday, November 1st–12 Mar Cheshvan, 8:00 PM, at Lubavitch Yeshivah, 570 Crown St.

    Rabbi Shmuel Lew, the Rebbe’s senior Shliach in London and a master educator, will share memories and anecdotes of his life-long friendship with Dr. Block. The Shloshim will feature addresses by several of Dr. Block’s Mushpaim and family members.

    A Has’chalah for a Sefer Torah that will be written Leiluy Nishmas Dr. Block and his wife Laya will take place at the Shloshim.

    Dr. Block was a leader in many fields, yet he was graced with true chassidisher humility. He did not like to speak of himself, but he loved to farbreng about the Rebbe and Chassidus. In the course of these farbrengens, he often spoke of the many inspiring moments that he shared with the Rebbe and of the guidance and mentorship that he received.

    He was a man of contrasts, but a thorough P’nimi; authentic in every dimension. He was a true chossid and a leading philosopher. A gifted speaker, and a quiet doer. A master teacher and a humble student. A gifted lecturer and an unassuming person. A Harvard Graduate, who lectured at philosophy conferences around the world, and an authentic Mashpia, who made many Baalei Teshuva at his famous all-night farbrengens at the Pegisha. An accomplished and published academic, and a Shliach of the Rebbe who studied Chassidus and davened with Avoidah every morning.

    Come celebrate the life of an authentic chossid in modern times.

    A tribute booklet of stories about Dr. Block will be published in honor of the Shloshim. Please send your favorite memories of Dr. Block to drblockmemories@gmail.com.
