Many yidden were shocked as I was, by the recent passing of Danny Berkowitz. Danny was very musically talented and I had the pleasure of working with him on a recording project. Although that project never materialized, I got to know him quite well and he was truly passionate about music and was a very caring and giving person. Danny moved on to become an important member of the group called Menucha, an Eli Gerstner production and had performed at many concerts. Danny was also a proud member of Hatzolah for many years and he had doubtlessly saved countless lives. His day job was as an IT systems engineer at ISO, a job he held for at least a decade and was a true expert at.The news of his passing as he simply had not woken up that shabbos afternoon, hit me hard on many levels. Besides having spent so much time in my home, he was young (mid 30's) and seemingly in great shape. Although I have not seen him or spoken to him in many years, this story still had a great impact on me. Proof of this was the fact that the this past motzei shabbos when I heard of his passing, I had the most vivid dream in which he appeared to me. It gave me goose pumps the next day and I think it gives us pause to contemplate how fleeting life truly is and how we should live it accordingly. Here is a video that shows an interview with Menucha and Danny starts to speak at about 2:44.
