Community Observes 12th Yahrzeit Of Rabbi Bryn

Rabbi Dovid Bryn

Rabbi Dovid Bryn

The South Florida community recently marked the 12th yahrzeit of legendary South Florida rabbi Dovid Bryn, zt”l. Rabbi Bryn was widely-known for his acts of kindness and genuine love for every human being. He is truly missed by all who knew him.

Some rabbis are known for their gigantic shuls but Rabbi Bryn had a much bigger shul – one not bound by walls. His shul was in the flea markets and at the Maccabee games and in the soccer fields of the J.C.C. His shul was in homes, in Sunday afternoons spent in people’s living rooms, with a pair of tefillin and a group of teenagers. His shul was in the community’s hearts.

In honor of his yahrzeit, Chabad Chayil, the outreach organization he founded, hosted a special tribute farbrengen, where his friends and family got together to say a l’chaim, reminisce about the good times shared together and, most important, to talk about how his chesed could be emulated.

Rabbi Bryn was a shliach of the Lubavitcher Rebbe. His life was cut tragically short at age 40 by Marfan Syndrome, a condition that affects the body’s connective tissue. Rabbi Bryn courageously battled the disease for more than a quarter of a century. Despite his illness, he somehow managed to minister to, counsel and save countless souls.

Some might be troubled by the precariousness of constantly living on the edge of existence, but the rabbi’s overflowing concern for others left no room for worry over his own well-being. He lived the equivalent of 120 years of good in a third of the time.
