At 111 years old, Mr. Alexander Imich has been officially verified as the oldest living man in the United States and the second oldest in the world. Imich lives alone in an apartment in Manhattan’s Upper West Side where he has lived since 1965.
Imich, a polish born chemist who has survived two world wars, narrowly escaped the Nazi death camps and survived the notorious Russian work camps, recently received a visit from local Chabad emissary, Rabbi Pinny Marazov of Coney Island, Brooklyn. Among other religious rituals performed during their meeting, Rabbi Marazov affixed a kosher Mezuzah to the doorpost of the apartment entrance.
On behalf of Mezuzah Master, we would like to wish Mr. Imich many more happy, healthy years full of all the joys and wonders of life, all from under the spiritual energy and protective influence of his new Mezuzah.
