    Oish. What a loss.
    I knew him well. He was mamesh a Prince.
    I used to see him very often at R’ Herzog’s shul on my block. What a Tzaddik.
    He lost a son many years ago and was Mekabel B’Ahava.
    Yehi Zichro Boruch.

  • Muti Klein says:

    Bde How old was he and does he have any children in lakewood?.
    May his neshama have an alya

  • Bsoch Ami says:

    What a specially refined man indeed. I used to sit next to him in Kol Shimshon when he learned with his Chavrusa in the afternoon.

  • q says:

    What a Tzaddik!

  • Joel Sinsky says:

    Chaim was a Talmud Chochom in Learning and in Midos. A true Tzaddik in every way. Over all the years that I have known him he was a role model in the work place, in the Bais Medrash and in the home. He was a great man and a good friend. I shall miss him so much. May his wife, his children and his grandchildren be comforted. Yehi Zichron Boruch!

  • I M Jakobovits says:

    I knew Reb Chaim from Baltimore and his father as well
    He lost a son and moved to Lakewood to be with his Einiklach
    He was a true Oived Hashem an Erlicher Yid, and had exemplary Middos. What a loss
    May his family have a Nechama

  • Michele says:

    Dear Weil Family,
    I am so sorry for your loss! I grew up with your family in Baltimore (my maiden name is Michele Hamburg). I remember your entire family as so very fine, kind and humble. Mrs. Weil, you and your husband were always so kind to my Mom. I send my love and a big hug to all of you. Baruch Dayan haEmet.

  • A grandchild says:

    Thank you all for your comments! Our grandfather was a king, a special person indeed. Since there is no proper Shiva home, and there is less opportunity for the family to hear people’s recollections of our wonderful Zaida, the comments will definitely be shown to the people sitting Shiva. Yehi zichro Baruch!
