"I was saddened to hear about the passing of my dear friend of over 35 years, David Goldberg from Skokie IL.
David was a deep and caring person. He was always learning, questioning and discussing. He loved learning Torah and had a keen interest in philosphy. At the same time, David was exceptionally friendly, warm and caring, who loved his family, friends and community. There was nothing superficial about David, he was a real chosid, who was always striving to grow spiritually and serve G-d with integrity.
His poetry that he started to write in recent years eloquently expressed the inner spiritual fire of his soul. I will miss David. He is a shining example and a source of blessings for his family, friends and all of Am Yisrael."
As seen on Rabbi Shlomo Gestetner, Dean of the Mayanot Institute's, LinkedIn profile yesterday.
When Rabbi Shlomo Gestetner was a shliach in Skokie, Illinois in 1991, David Goldberg and he were learning partners and have kept in touch for over 30 years. David loved Mayanot and was a great supporter of quality Jewish education and outreach.
MAY HIS MEMORY BE FOR A BLESSING AND MAY HIS FAMILY BE COMFORTED WITH THE MOURNERS OF ZION.
