Dear Penina and the whole Rosenblum family We were truly saddened by the news of Anshel's passing. Our memories of time spent together, are rich, warm and are greatly treasured by us all. I can't list them as they are so many and varied . We can't sum up what he meant to us all in a few words. He will be missed by many and we truly share in your grief. He was a wonderful, warm, vibrant and honestly humble man who was loved and respected by many people . המקום ינחם אתכם בתוך שאר אבלי ציון וירושלים ולא תוסיפו לדאבה עוד Yehudit, Moishe ,Dov, Zahava and families May you all be comforted by your wonderful memories .

To the Rosenblums and extended family. Our hearts are broken. We were blessed to have known Anshel for many years, and to share laughter and joy at his and Penina's Shabbos and Yom Tov table, and to have met many in their family over the years. Our hearts go out to Penina and the entire family at this sad time. Baruch Dayan Ha'Emes. Leah and Eliahu

Dear Penina and family, It pains me so much to learn of Anshel's passing. The kesher between the Rosenblum and Poch families has existed for more than eighty years. When I was in high school, and eating lunch at my grandmother's house, I used to write a cheque for her each month, payable to M and N Rosenblum - Anshels' father and Uncle Nuti, who were the property managers of the apartment where she and my Zaida lived. (When Anshel's mother died, we visited the shiva in Montreal, where Anshel produced from his pocket a list of the monthly rents due, and showed me how much rent my grandparents were paying about half-a-century earlier.) We then got to know each other much better when Miriam and I moved to Toronto and we all davened in Bnai Torah. Together, Anshel and I served for many years on the Chevra Kadisha, and I learned much from him. Of course, Miriam was your protégée in the Eitz Chaim preschool, and joins me in the prayer that Anshel will be a meilitz yosher for the entire family, for the members of the shul, and for all of klal yisroel. HaMokom yinochem.

Anshel loved living and loved learning. I had the zechus to learn daf yomi in the same chabura as Anshel, and in thc hevra kadisha. But most important, he loved being with and caring for his eishet chayil, Penina, and so enjoyed his children, grandchildren and greatgrandchildren. He was a beautiful role model in our shule in every way. And he was proud to be gabbai tzedaka in Bnai Torah. May he be a meilitz yosher for Penina and the entire family, and indeed the entire kehilla. Yehi zichro baruch..

Anshel's passing has left a profound void in our hearts and souls. We go back a longtime to our days in Montreal. Anshel exemplified Torah values בן אדם למקום and בן אדם לחברו in a way that personified true קדוש ה'. יהי זכרו ברוך

Terry Kaufman! My deepest condolences to Pinina and the entire family! Anshel was a generous heartfelt man that gave of himself always! It was 50 years ago that we started to work together! During our few years that we travelled and did work in Ontario he was welcomed by all! I have seen only a few times over the years but we knew what each other was doing! The best way to describe Anshel was A MENSCH! A very kind man to all! He will be missed!

Anshel was a beloved and valued member of B'nai Torah...the charity work he did on behalf of those less fortunate was invaluable and has earned him an exalted place indeed in Shomayim. May his entire family be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.

היום יום ששי בשבת has been silenced. Who can forget Reb Anshel yelling out these words during שחרית every Friday to express his joy that שבת is coming. His entire life was devoted to עבודת השם . Together with Pnina they built a dynasty of בנים ובני בנים שומרי תורה ומצות. His years in Bnai Akiva in Montreal instilled within him a love for ארץ ישראל which grew throughout his life. Anshel and Pnina purchased an apartment in ירושלים and for many years they came during שלוש רגלים. When they were not occupying the apartment it was available to their many children and grandchildren in seminary and Yeshiva. During his visits Anshel davened at the כותל every morning at the נץ מנין. He became a beloved member of Rav Porush’s מנין where he had a מקום קבוע. One of the חשוב members of the Minyan picked him up each morning . His mornings were spent in כולל . In the last years when he had difficulty walking he continued to attend כולל and other שיעורים. He was one of the first בעל הבתים to join the Thornhill Kollel. He attended morning סדר where he had a חברותה with one of the אבריכים for לימוד בעיון as well as חברותה during second סדר . These סדרים continued by phone during COVID. A book could and should be written about Reb Anshel’s life as an inspiration to others. May השם bring נחמה to Pnina , the entire משפחה and all those who are suffering an immeasurable loss . יהי זכרו ברוך Avraham Bernice and Rachamim Friedman

Dear Penina and family. Being in Israel for close to two months, It was a shock to us to find out about Anshel's departure. We have known Anshel for close to 40 years, ever since moving to Toronto and joining B'nai Torah. His davening on Yomin Naroim will forever stay in our memory. His many years of running the Tzedakah Fund made him loved and respected not only by he B'nai Torah but the the whole Toronto community. Let his memory be a bracha to the children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Baruch Dayan Ha'Emes.
