About Danny

Danny Green, a member of the Chabad community in San Diego, California, who was known as “Dan The Man”, passed away on Rosh Chodesh Sivan 5778. He was 46.

The oldest son of Alan and Elisheva Green, Dan was born with Partial Trisomy 18, a rare chromosomal disorder (similar to Down Syndrome). At the time, doctors knew of only seven other documented cases.

Doctors told Mrs. Green to leave him in the hospital as her son would not live long, and certainly would not be able to have any kind of meaningful life.

The doctors couldn’t have been more wrong.

Dan was raised and treated as a typical member of the family. He put on tefillin each morning and davened with a minyan three times a day and enjoyed swimming, biking, hiking, playing with children, and going on roller coasters.

Over the years, he worked at places like Sea World and a Gap store. His favorite job was working with children as a kindergarten aide at a local public school.

As a valued part of the Jewish community, Dan was known for his big smile, and bigger heart, friends said. He always had something nice to say. Dan will be fondly remembered for his strong bear hugs, bone-crushing handshakes and ‘gentle’ pats on the back.

Fueled by his parents’ love, Dan lived a very fulfilling and giving life. Because of Dan, his mother started Friendship Circle of San Diego and serves as its Executive Director. The two of them have helped give friendship and support to hundreds of families of special needs children and adults.

Dan is survived by his parents Alan and Elisheva, siblings Orin Green (La Jolla, CA), Ari Green (Teaneck, NJ), Yehuda Green (Kingston, PA), Sara Ives (Brussels, Belgium), Shira Abramson (Crown Heights), and Esther Zeidman (Morristown, NJ), a grandmother, aunts and uncles, 30 nieces and nephews, and thousands of good deeds and loving memories for all those who knew him.

Please continue to do mitzvot to bring merit to Dan’s soul and more light into the world.

May we be reunited soon with the coming of Moshiach!

Daniel‘s Chapter of Tehillim

פֶּרֶק מ”ו

א. לַמְנַצֵּחַ לִבְנֵי קֹרַח עַל עֲלָמוֹת שִׁיר:
ב. אֱלֹהִים לָנוּ מַחֲסֶה וָעֹז עֶזְרָה בְצָרוֹת נִמְצָא מְאֹד:
ג. עַל כֵּן לֹא נִירָא בְּהָמִיר אָרֶץ וּבְמוֹט הָרִים בְּלֵב יַמִּים:
ד. יֶהֱמוּ יֶחְמְרוּ מֵימָיו יִרְעֲשׁוּ הָרִים בְּגַאֲוָתוֹ סֶלָה:
ה. נָהָר פְּלָגָיו יְשַׂמְּחוּ עִיר אֱלֹהִים קְדֹשׁ מִשְׁכְּנֵי עֶלְיוֹן:
ו. אֱלֹהִים בְּקִרְבָּהּ בַּל תִּמּוֹט יַעְזְרֶהָ אֱלֹהִים לִפְנוֹת בֹּקֶר:
ז. הָמוּ גוֹיִם מָטוּ מַמְלָכוֹת נָתַן בְּקוֹלוֹ תָּמוּג אָרֶץ:
ח. יְהוָה צְבָאוֹת עִמָּנוּ מִשְׂגָּב לָנוּ אֱלֹהֵי יַעֲקֹב סֶלָה:
ט. לְכוּ חֲזוּ מִפְעֲלוֹת יְהוָה אֲשֶׁר שָׂם שַׁמּוֹת בָּאָרֶץ:
י. מַשְׁבִּית מִלְחָמוֹת עַד קְצֵה הָאָרֶץ קֶשֶׁת יְשַׁבֵּר וְקִצֵּץ חֲנִית עֲגָלוֹת יִשְׂרֹף בָּאֵשׁ:
י”א. הַרְפּוּ וּדְעוּ כִּי אָנֹכִי אֱלֹהִים אָרוּם בַּגּוֹיִם אָרוּם בָּאָרֶץ:
י”ב. יְהוָה צְבָאוֹת עִמָּנוּ מִשְׂגָּב לָנוּ אֱלֹהֵי יַעֲקֹב סֶלָה:

Chapter 46

1. For the conductor, a song of the sons of Korah, on alamoth.
2. God is for us a shelter and a strength, a help in troubles; He is very accessible.
3. Therefore we will not fear when the earth changes and when mountains totter into the heart of seas.
4. His waters shall stir and be muddied; mountains shall quake from His pride forever.
5. But as for the river-its rivulets shall cause the city of God, the holy place of the dwellings of the Most High, to rejoice.
6. God is in its midst that it should not totter; God shall help it as morning approaches.
7. Nations have stirred, kingdoms have tottered; He let out His voice, the earth shall melt.
8. The Lord of Hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress forever.
9. Go and see the works of the Lord, that He has wrought devastation in the earth.
10. He puts a stop to wars until the end of the earth; He will break the bow and cut the spear [to pieces]; wagons He will burn with fire.
11. Desist, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted upon the earth.
12. The Lord of Hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress forever.
