It was such a blessing to have known Mr. Mermell, a true Tzadek and a mensch. I will miss him so much and the good that he stood for. He taught me so much and took pride in whatever he did. His dedication to Judaism was unparalleled with kavod right up to the very end. It was an honor to daven with him in his later years and see him in his element, as we often did with other close friends. His contagious smile always made my day. He also had a special and close relationship with Linda's sister in Israel and asked about her often, which also brought me closer to him. His passing highlights how lucky I was to know and be friends with him. With much love and admiration, Abe and Linda Knobel

Nick Mermell was a true Tzaddik. There are so many wonderful things to say about the man that a message board doesn't even come close to honoring his memory. Mr. Mermell was the embodiment of a good, righteous, caring, loving, educated, devoted Jew. He would call every holiday to wish me a Gut Yontif. He taught my children how to be committed Jews. He taught us all the real lessons of life. Mr. Mermell knew the Torah in and out -- every word, every syllable, every letter. He was a humble man who eschewed praise and recognition. He was kind and gentle. One Yom Kippur, we gave Nick a ride home from Schul. In one poignant sentence, he taught my children the most profound lesson of their lives. I will miss Mr. Mermell. I pray that HaShem knows how grateful we are that we could share in Mr. Mermell's 100+ years on this earth. I am certain that Mr. Mermell's memory will always be for a blessing!

I’m very sorry to hear about this loss. It is such a sad stark contrast that people will not be able to mourn together at the Shiva when his life was something that in fact did bring us together, both as a Sinai community and in joining with Chabad of Beverly Hills. May his memory be blessing to us all and may his family find peace and comfort with all the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem ????? ???? ???? ???? ??? ???? ???? ????????
