R”Aba

While I did not have the good fortune to know R”Aba personally,over the years I heard my late Zaide R”Herman Neuberger sing his praises.

The myriad of good deeds and responsible askonos that R”Aba did over the years is well known,but I was most impressed with a fairly recent incident that R”Aba was involved in and showed what true leadership and responsible askonos is all about

 

One of the people that the Chofetz Chaim admired  most was the “Malbim”. He felt that since the Malbim devoted his most productive years  to write  his perush on Tanach in order to combat Maskilim, in the eyes of the great Chofetz Chaim, such an mammoth undertaking was extremely praiseworthy. R”Aba’s recent battle (which was totally Lshem Shomayim) against  those who under the guise of trying to fix a problem but in actuality were evil people looking for prestige and control is reminiscent (in my humble opinion) of the battle the Malbim faced. R”Aba’s courageous battle against those who tried to sully his name and cause him embarrassment was something that all G-D fearing Jews should be proud of

May Hashem bring give his family comfort and may his children and grandchildren appreciate his wonderful legacy

Condolences from Malta Mourning Community Shelley Tayar

Dear Family (the whole world) of Beloved Abba Dunner, you must be blssed to be related to “Abba”

The news hit us here in Malta as a shock. Rabbi Abba Dunner who had the talent of making every one he talked to feel so important and at the moment of approaching him he made everyone searching his help feel welcome and wanted.

He was so busy and he took on more and more both individual and community problems and he really helped or put one in touch with those who can help.

He changed ones world by moving us so much closer to HAKadosh Baruch Who, with G-d directing him he solved problems in the four corners of the world. His name was Abba and he “fathered” with kindness, gentleness and empathy.

One of the 36 Zadikim who prop up this world He leaves behind the trail of his glowing spirit and a memory that he expected us all to follow his Path Tehiye Nishmato Zerura Bizror Hahayim. May you never know more sorrow.

From Malta Mourning Community, Shelley Tayar
