Thousands Farewell Paris Shliach

Thousands attended the funeral of the legendary Head Shliach of Paris, Rabbi Shmuel Azimov obm in Jerusalem, Thursday.

Thousands attended the funeral of the legendary Head Shliach of Paris, Rabbi Shmuel Azimov obm at the Shamgar funeral home in Jerusalem, Thursday.

A delegation of hundreds of people flew in from France on a special flight following a funeral in Paris, after which he was flown to Israel for burial on Har Hazeisim.

During the heartbreaking procession, Arabs marred the funeral by throwing rocks at the mourners. No one was injured.

At the funeral, after the reciting of Kaddish, the crowd sang the nigun "Hoaderes V'hoEmunah", a niggun the Rebbe associated with Rabbi Azimov's "French Revolution."

Rabbi Azimov was buried alongside his late wife, Rebbetzin Bassie Azimov OBM.

Rav Azimov was unique, he did more for French Jewry than anyone. He truly loved and cared for every Jew. A man of the people.
Will be sorely missed. BD'H.

it's so inspiring to see all these ppl coming from france to thank him for the last time and to see all these chassidim singing the french nigun at his levaya . it shows how great he worked all his life and like the rebbe said that is mission was and is successfull bh because it "was beyond expectations" .

a book a must!!!
Rabbi Mulle Azimov was the ultimate Shliach one can aspire to!!! mekushar bekol nafshoi to the Rebbe. Burning ahavas Yisroel. a real varemer kluger chsidisher yid. selfless. humble eeemmmeeesss!!! utter sincerety. worhoholik!! Rebbes soldier!!! great fundraiser. lived very modest ... ish sholom... in short. everything the Rebbe wants in a Shliach. WE CHSIDIM AND SHLUCHIM HAVE TO LEARN AND TRY TO EMULATE THIS.. HEY LOOK IT IS!!! POSSIBLE TO LIVE LIKE THE REBBE WANTS US TO LIVE. THEREFORE I APPEAL TO THE FAMILY AND THE PARIS COMMUNITY TO PLEASE WRITE AT LEAST ONE BOOK ABOUT THIS GREAT FIGURE SO I AND OTHERS CAN LEARN FROM HIM.

a terrible loss to the family and to the Lubavitch family all around the globe. BDE. hamokom yebachem eschem vekulonu...

A terrible lost
The Chasidim in France feel they lost their father. The pain is huge. You can see it in their eyes.. Rabbi Azimow was the Shlia ch, the teacher, the guide for every aspect of their life. He was also their father .
He built an empire. A tremendous empire of shluchim and Chasidim, b'darkei hachasidus.
