Company reserves the right to refuse use of the Services to anyone and to reject, cancel, interrupt, remove or suspend any Campaign, Donation, or the Services at any time for any reason without liability.

Definitions: In these Terms and Conditions "Campaign Organizers" means those raising funds, and "Campaigns" as their fundraising campaigns. Additionally, "Donors" means those contributing funds, and "Donations" as the funds they contribute. Campaign Organizers, Donors and other visitors to the Services are referred to collectively as "Users". The term "Campaign Organizers" shall also be deemed to include any individual(s) designated as a beneficiary of Campaigns.

Services: The Services are offered as a platform (the "Platform") to Users of the Services. Among other features, the Services are designed to allow Campaign Organizers to post Campaigns to the Platform to accept Donations from Donors. Although there are no fees to set up Campaigns, a portion of each Donation will be charged as fees for our Services and those of our third party payment processors. Company reserves the right to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Services with or without notice. You agree that Company will not be liable to you or to any third party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance thereof. The Company has no responsibility or liability for the deletion or failure to store any data or other content maintained or uploaded by the Services. To the extent you access the Services through a mobile device, your wireless service carrier's standard charges, data rates and other fees may apply. In addition, downloading, installing, or using certain Services may be prohibited or restricted by your carrier, and not all Services may work with all carriers or devices. By using the Services, you agree that we may communicate with you regarding Company and other entities by SMS, MMS, text message or other electronic means to your mobile device and that certain information about use of the Services may be communicated to us.

Charitable Giving: Campaigns are not charities to which you can make tax-deductible charitable contributions. Any Donation you make through the Platform may be processed by an unaffiliated business partner for which a processing fee (in addition to our FrontRunner Professional Fee) is deducted. You understand, acknowledge and agree that Company is not a charity, and Company does not solicit charitable donations for itself or for any third-party charitable institution. Company is merely acting as a payment facilitator for any Donations.

Administrative Platform Only: The Services are an administrative platform only. The Company is merely acting as a payment facilitator for any Donations between Campaign Organizers and Donors, and is not a party to any agreement between Campaign Organizers and Donors. Company is not a broker, agent, financial institution, creditor or insurer for any user. Company has no control over the conduct of, or any information provided by Campaign Organizers, and Company hereby disclaims all liability in this regard. We expressly disclaim any liability or responsibility for the success or outcome of any Campaign. Donors must in their sole discretion make the final determination of making Donations to any Campaigns. Donors are solely responsible for asking questions and investigating Campaign Organizers and Campaigns to the extent they feel is necessary before making a Contribution. All Donations are made voluntarily and at the sole discretion and risk of Donors. Company does not guarantee that Donations will be used as promised. Company does not endorse, guarantee, make representations, or provide warranties for or about the quality, safety, or legality of any Campaign. Donors are solely responsible for determining how to treat their Donations for tax purposes.

No Verification of Campaign Information: We do not verify the information that Campaign Organizers supply, and do not guarantee that the Donations will be used in accordance with any fundraising purpose prescribed by Campaign Organizers. We disclaim and assume no responsibility to verify whether the Donations are used in accordance with any applicable laws.

Your Registration Obligations: You may be required to register with Company in order to access and use certain features of the Services. If you choose to register for the Services, you agree to provide and maintain true, accurate, current and complete information about yourself as prompted by the Services' registration form. Campaign Organizers must register using their true identities, including their name and any image purporting to depict the Campaign Organizer. Registration data and certain other information about you are governed by our Privacy Policy. If you are under 13 years of age, you are not authorized to use the Services, with or without registering. In addition, if you are under 18 years old, you may use the Services, with or without registering, only with the approval of your parent or guardian. Certain aspects of our Services may also require you to register with (and agree to the terms of) third party service providers (e.g., payment processors or charitable donation processors) in order to utilize such Services. While we may help facilitate such registration in some cases, we are not a party to any such relationships and disclaim any responsibility or liability for the performance by such third parties. We may exchange information with such third party services in order to facilitate the provision of Services (and related third party services).

Public Display of Donations: Donors have the option to publicly display their Donations for public viewing or allow their information to be provided to the Campaign beneficiary(ies). To keep the details of your Donation private, simply click the appropriate checkbox during the Donation process. Please see our Privacy Policy for more information on the ways that we may collect, use, and store certain information about you and your use of the Services.

Payment of Donations: In order to contribute to a Campaign, Donors will be required to provide Company information regarding its credit card (i.e., VISA, MasterCard, Discover or American Express) or other payment method. Donors represent and warrant to Company that such information is true and that Donors are authorized to use the credit card or payment method. Donors agree that a certain minimum Donation amount may apply, and that all Donation payments are final and cannot be refunded. Donors agree to promptly update account information with any changes that may occur and to pay the Donation amount that you specify. Donors hereby authorize Company to bill Donors' credit cards and payment methods in advance on a periodic basis until Donors terminate periodic payments through the Platform.

Fees: Company does not charge Campaign Organizers any upfront fees for Campaigns. Company retains a portion of each Donation contributed to Campaigns in the amount of four percent (4%) ("FrontRunner Professional Fee"). A portion of the Donation is payable to our third party payment processors ("Processing Fee"). Donors acknowledge that by contributing Donations to Campaigns, Donors are agreeing to any and all applicable terms and conditions set forth by a third party payment processor, in addition to these Terms and Conditions. The portion of each Donation payable to and retained by our third party payment processors are:

        • US Users ONLY: Third party payment processor charges a fee of 2.9% AND $0.30 per donation for VISA, MasterCard or Discover cards or 3.4% AND $0.30 per donation for American Express cards.

        • CA Users ONLY: Third party payment processor charges a fee of 2.9% AND $0.30 per donation for VISA, MasterCard or Discover cards or 3.4% AND $0.30 per donation for American Express cards.

All Tribute Pay Fees and Processing Fees ("Fees") are deducted directly from each Donation and are not reflected in the amount which Campaign Organizers can withdraw from the Campaign. We reserve the right to change any of the Fees from time to time. If we change any of the Fees, we will provide notice of the change on the Website or otherwise, at our option, at least fourteen (14) days before the change is to take effect. Your continued use of the Services after the change in any of the Fees becomes effective constitutes your acceptance of the new Fees.

Indemnification: You agree to release, indemnify and hold Company and its affiliates and their owners, officers, employees, directors and agents harmless from any from any and all losses, damages, expenses, including reasonable attorneys' fees, rights, claims, causes of action, actions of any kind and injury (including death) arising out of or relating to your use of the Services, any Donation or Campaign, your violation of these Terms and Conditions or your violation of any rights of another. If you are a California resident, you waive California Civil Code Section 1542, which says: "A GENERAL RELEASE DOES NOT EXTEND TO CLAIMS WHICH THE CREDITOR DOES NOT KNOW OR SUSPECT TO EXIST IN HIS FAVOR AT THE TIME OF EXECUTING THE RELEASE, WHICH IF KNOWN BY HIM MUST HAVE MATERIALLY AFFECTED HIS SETTLEMENT WITH THE DEBTOR". To the extent you are a resident of another jurisdiction, you waive any comparable statute or doctrine




DISPUTE RESOLUTION - ARBITRATION (READ CAREFULLY): You agree to arbitrate all disputes and claims between you and Company (including our respective subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, employees, predecessors in interest, successors, and assigns). Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may bring an individual action in small claims court. Notice of Dispute ("Notice"). The Notice to Company should be sent to 2501 Parmenter Street, Suite 300A, Middleton, WI 53562, Attn: President, with a copy by email to support@tributepayments.com ("Notice Address"). The Notice must (i) describe the nature and basis of the claim or dispute, and (ii) set forth the specific relief sought ("Demand"). If Company and you do not reach an agreement to resolve the claim within sixty (60) days after the Notice is received, you or Company may commence an arbitration proceeding. During the arbitration, the amount of any settlement offer made by Company or you shall not be disclosed to the arbitrator until after the arbitrator determines the amount, if any, to which you or Company is entitled.

The arbitration will be governed by the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (collectively, "AAA Rules") of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as modified by this Terms and Conditions, and will be administered by the AAA. The AAA Rules are available online at adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879, or by writing to the Notice Address. The arbitrator is bound by the terms of this Terms and Conditions. All issues are for the arbitrator to decide, including, but not limited to, issues relating to the scope, enforceability, and arbitrability of the arbitration provision. Unless Company and you agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in Chicago, Illinois. Regardless of the manner in which the arbitration is conducted, the arbitrator shall issue a reasoned written decision sufficient to explain the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. YOU AND COMPANY AGREE THAT EACH MAY BRING CLAIMS AGAINST THE OTHER ONLY IN YOUR OR ITS INDIVIDUAL CAPACITY, AND NOT AS A PLAINTIFF OR CLASS MEMBER IN ANY PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING. Unless both you and Company agree otherwise in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person's claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of a representative or class proceeding. If this specific provision is found to be unenforceable, then the entirety of this arbitration provision shall be null and void.

However, it does not apply to entities that Company does not own or control, including without limitation, Campaign, advertisers or developers of content. Company may include third-party links on the Site. These third-party sites are governed by their own privacy policies and NOT this Policy.

2. General Policy Provisions

  1. Definitions

    “Personal Information” includes both “Personally Identifiable Information” and “Non-Personally Identifiable Information”.

    "Personally Identifiable Information" refers to information that lets us know the specifics of who you are and can be used to identify, contact or locate you. Personally Identifiable Information is requested when you register with us, make a Donation, correspond with us, or otherwise volunteer information, for instance, through the use of "Contact Us". Personally Identifiable Information may include, without limitation, your name, mailing address, telephone number, e-mail address, credit card number, and other identification and contact information.

    "Non-Personally Identifiable Information" refers to information that does not identify a specific individual by itself or in combination with other information. We gather certain information about you based upon what you view on our Site in several ways. This information is compiled and analyzed on both a personal and an aggregated basis. This information may include the Site’s Uniform Resource Locator ("URL") that you just came from, which URL you next go to, what browser you are using, and your Internet Protocol ("IP") address. A URL is the global address of documents and other resources on the World Wide Web (‘Web”). An IP address is an identifier for a computer or device on a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol ("TCP/IP") network, such as the World Wide Web. Networks use the TCP/IP protocol to route information based on the IP address of the destination. In other words, an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web, allowing Web servers to locate and identify your computer. Computers require IP addresses in order for users to communicate on the Internet, browse and shop

    “Sensitive Personal Information” means Personal Information that reveals race, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership or that concerns an individual’s health.

  2. Notice

    Company shall inform you of the purposes for which it collects and uses Personal Information and the types of non-agent third parties to which Company discloses or may disclose that information. Company shall provide you with the choice and means for limiting the use and disclosure of your Personal Information. Notice will be provided in clear and conspicuous language when you are first asked to provide Personal Information to Company, or as soon as practicable thereafter. In any event, you will receive notice before Company uses or discloses the information for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected.

  3. Choice

    Company will offer you the opportunity to choose (opt-out) whether Personal Information is to be disclosed to a third party or to be used for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected or has subsequently been authorized. For Sensitive Personal Information (when applicable), Company will give you the opportunity to affirmatively or explicitly consent (opt-in) to the disclosure of the information for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected or has subsequently been authorized. Company will treat Sensitive Personal Information it receives from anyone the same as it would treat its own Sensitive Personal Information.

  4. Security

    Company shall take reasonable steps to protect Personal Information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. No company is immune from Internet attacks or data breaches. Company cannot guarantee the security of information on or transmitted via the Internet.

  5. Data Integrity

    Company shall only process Personal Information in a way that is compatible with and relevant to the purpose for which it was collected or has been authorized. To the extent necessary for those purposes, Company shall take reasonable steps to ensure that Personal Information is accurate, complete, current, and reliable for its intended use.

Company will not tell the advertiser who you are as part of this process. When you interact with an advertisement there is a possibility that you may receive a cookie from the advertiser.

7. How Company Shares Your Information

Company shares your Personal Information with third parties when it believes you have permitted such sharing, that it is reasonably necessary to offer services, or when legally required to do so. Company will not share your Personally Identifiable Information with third parties in a way that it thinks violates your privacy. The following non-exhaustive list contains examples of how Company shares or could share your information:

  1. If Site allows you to invite a friend to join the Site or become a User, and you choose to do so, the invitation will contain information that will allow your friend to identify you. The invitation may contain information about other Users your friend might know.

  2. Certain information you provide to Company may be shared by using the Site’s search function. This allows other Users to locate your profile and it allows new Users to find people they know on the Site.

  3. Company provides some public information to search engines. This information allows search engines to locate the Site. It also allows people to locate you on the Site using a major search engine. This does not mean all information you post on the Site may be accessed using a search engine.

  4. There are also times when Company may make certain Personal Information about you available to strategic partners or third parties. These companies may help Company process information, render services to you, manage and enhance customer data, provide customer service, assess your interest in products and services, or conduct research or satisfaction surveys. Without such information being made available, it would be difficult for you to use Company's Site and services.

  5. Company may also share Personal Information when it has a good faith belief it is necessary to prevent fraud or other illegal activity, to prevent imminent bodily harm, or to protect itself and you from people violating the Terms and Conditions of the Site. This may include sharing information with other companies, lawyers, and courts or other government entities.

  6. Company may disclose information pursuant to subpoenas, court orders, or other requests (including criminal and civil matters) if it has a good faith belief that the law requires such a response. This may include requests from jurisdictions outside of the United States if Company has a good faith belief that the response is required by law under the local laws in that jurisdiction, is applicable to users from that jurisdiction, and is consistent with generally accepted international standards.

  7. Company may disclose analyzed data in the form of purchasing trends or statistical data. No Personally Identifiable Information will be attached to this disclosure.

8. Business or Asset Transfer or Sale

Company may be sold, sell or buy businesses or assets of businesses, or merge with another business. In such transactions, Personal Information generally is one of the transferred business assets. Also, in the event that Company, a line of business of Company, or substantially all the assets of Company are transferred, Personal Information may well be one of the transferred assets. Company will make a reasonable effort to provide notice on the Site, and to notify you via e-mail to the most recent e-mail address that you have provided of any such change in ownership or control of your personal information.

9. Miscellaneous

  1. Privacy of Children


    Protecting children’s privacy is especially important to Company. Company does not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under 13, but because some information is collected electronically, it can appear to be the Personal Information of someone over the age of 13, and will be treated as such by this Policy. If a child under 13 submits Personal Information and Company learns that Personal Information pertains to a child under 13, it will attempt to delete the information as soon as possible. It is Company’s policy to comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 and all other applicable laws. Therefore, Company restricts the Site and all other provided services to persons 18 years or older.

Rusty, I remember your Dad well. First as a neighbor and then as the caterer that provided so many goodies during Oneg Shabbat Friday night after services at Beth Israel in Randallstown. I still remember my brother getting into 'trouble' at your Bar Mitzvah celebration at your house when your uncles gave him one too many Whisky Sours! Oh those were the days. Thinking of you as your mourn the loss of your father. It's never easy losing our Dad's but eventually the fond memories take over the sadness of loss.

I’ve known Joey forever. He was the kindest compassionate, and most caring man. His nephew Jack and my brother Arnold were friends. They both were emotionally and mentally disturbed but they were brilliant! Joey and i always talked about them while my three kids were learning their Bar/Bat Mitzvah lessons from him. He also taught me my portion that I was reading from the Torah at my sons Bar Mitzvah. He was so easy with the kids. He was the best!! He made us feel so comfortable. He had a great sense of humor and so many friends. Every one loved Joey Malin. He never forgot anyone. He will surely be missed. My condolences to his family and especially Laurie, the love of his life! His sudden passing stunned us all!

Having moved to Baltimore 47 yrs. ago & becoming members of the Randallstown Synagogue, is where we met Joey. He invited us over to his home for a Shabbat dinner & we socialized several times so long ago. I can remember his hospitality & warmth & his love for kids & people in general. He was so much more than a "good guy!" My sincere sympathies to his family & may Joey rest in everlasting peace!

Joey catered our wedding . It was a beautiful affair . When he would see us 50 some years later we would first get a hug and then he would say ‘idy and David , June 15th 1969.” He was a joy and a mensch. Everyone who knew him loved him.He will be missed. Our deepest condolences to you and your family.

Lauri, I was so saddened to learn of Joey's passing. He was such and kind and giving soul. The two of you created such a beautiful life together. He conducted shiva services when I lost my beloved daughter Ashleigh. Both of you were so comforting and Joey made the service so personal. May his memory always be for a blessing.

Lauri, Rusty, Neil, Amy and the rest of the family; very sorry for your loss. To say Joey was 'one-of-a-kind' would be an understatment. I have nothing but fond memories of him from growing up, whether it was at Beth Israel, or the catering business, or just life in general. Sending my deepest condolences to you.

Joey and my ex husband, Stu Zipper shared a Bar Mitzvah Parsha. He was extremely close to the Baida and Zipper Families. Margot Zipper's Father was their teacher/tutor for their Bar Mitzvah's at different times. Joey found his gifts from Stu's Grandfather in more than one way, first in his studies for his Bar Mitzvah that ultimately led him to his like career and Rabbinical calling and second his love of cooking and working in the catering business alongside Stu's family at "Baida Caterers" and his own like business before teaching.
Joey shed light, humor, and such kindness, and friendship to all he knew in the communities in and around Baltimore.
Mostly he was such a talent and mentor to teens of all kinds and all abilities. He was patient and met them at their levels and capacities.
Growing up he lived very close to my Mom's family. The families were involved and knew one another as well. Joey taught and led my cousin's two sons in their Bar Mitzvah's.
On my daughter's Bat Mitzvah, 9 years ago today, it was like old home week. Joey's jokes and shout outs to friends, acquaintances and family he knew.
Joey and Laurie made the service special and my daughter shined as her whole immediate family and friends were involved in her service. Even her great Grandfather was there in spirit, as Joey officiated in his tallit given to him from the family soon after his passing.
Joey will be missed. His gifts and light will continue to shine through wonderful memories created with his love for traditions, Judaism, creativity, community, laughter and family. What a legacy.

Joey, saw light, and shed warmth, happiness and humor throughout the community. He was patient and an amazing teacher to typical teens and those with extra needs as well. Like many in the Baltimore area, there were family connections in mine (Baida, Zipper, and my mother's family Gray). On my daughter's Bat Mitzvah Day exactly, 9 years ago today, it was like old home week and so many present with connections to Joey. He taught, prepared and officiated my cousin's two sons Bar Mitzvahs too. He will be missed, but goes with a legacy full of stories and memories and those who loved him.

My father, Aaron Baida, taught Joey his Bar Mitzvah portion, and Joey found his calling. He continued studying with my father and, fast forward several decades, Joey officiated at my granddaughter Rebecca Zipper’s Bat Mitzvah. Our family remained close over the years. We will miss Joey greatly.

Hi I met Joey through my parents years ago and we would have used him for my daughters Bat Mitzvah but he was already booked that day. Such a nice guy and oddly enough, I just saw him last weekend in my neighborhood, he was leaving a house and I was walking my dog and we were chit chatting. Truly a nice person who will be missed!

Dear Lauri and Families,
We were completely shocked when were heard that your Joey had passed away.
Lauri we both went to Hebrew school and had our Bat Mitzvah together, then we went to PHS and graduated PHS together. Your daughter and my son have been close friends. Eddie has known Joey for years. Our paths in life always seemed to intertwine.
Joey was the Mayor of Pikesville, he seemed to know everyone and their family of past and present. He was gregarious, always smiling and always had a joke or two to share!
May Joey's memory be a blessing.

Dear Lauri and family,
Words could never express how saddened we were to hear of Joey’s passing. We will forever be grateful for Joey’s compassion and patience for teaching Neil his Bar Mitzvah. His commitment and devotion to teaching was truly remarkable. As parents of a disabled child, Joey fulfilled a dream we thought was never possible. He will forever remain special in our hearts.

I am so sorry about Joey. He was such a nice person. Joey tutored all 3 of my children for their Bar and Bat Mitzvahs. They are now 48, 51 and 53 years old and they still speak of him. I worked at the Giant. So I saw him at least once every couple weeks in my line. I hope your memories of him will give you peace.

We were shocked and so saddened to learn of Joey's passing and send our sincere condolences. His warm kindness, compassionate caring for others, and friendly spirit will truly be missed by all who knew and loved him. Joey catered our daughter's Bat Mitzvah and was our son's & grandson's Bat Mitzvah tutor. Joey was always there with "his famous Knishes" to help us celebrate family Simchas. Joey will hold a special place in the hearts of many. May he rest in peace.

Like so many others, Joey tutored our son Hal for his Bar Mitzvah. Many years later when Hal went to Rabbinical School and was eventually ordained, Joey was very pleased to hear that. He always asked about Hal and his family and career.
One other thing about Joey, no matter where you saw him in public, he always was dressed better than anyone else. We'd see him in fast food or carry-out restaurants where everyone else was in a t-shirt and shorts, and Joey would be the only one dressed in a jacket and tie.
He will be missed.

As for so many families, Joey was a cherished tutor for our children’s bar mitzvah and bat mitzvah. But he was much more than that. He helped instill a lasting personal connection to Judaism for them….so much so that it was our daughter who saw the obituary first and notified us all this morning. For years after his tutoring, he always had a warm greeting for me and asked about our son and daughter by name. He was a quiet treasure for Jewish Baltimore. His memory will always be a blessing.

Joey was the best soul. He was part of my years at BHC. He was a friend to our family. When my mom was diagnosed with a rare, aggressive cancer, he was there, for the entire 3 1/2 years. When Roz couldn’t do a few of our shivas, Joey was there. 11 years later, he did my dad’s funeral and shiva. I’m truly heartbroken to know that there will never be another spontaneous hug and joke from Joey. His memory will always be a blessing to all who knew him. He was so very loved.

To the Malin family, there are names one never expects to see on Levenson's. Joey's was one of those. As so many have said, Joey catered the Kiddush at both our son's Bar Mitzvah. Joey had a unique way about making everyone he came across feel comfortable. His smile was very comforting. His personality very charming and magnetic. You are fortunate to come across a person like Joey even once in a lifetime. We were fortunate to have known him almost 50 years. May he rest in peace. May his memory always be for a blessing.

Dear Laurie and family, we were so shocked and saddened to hear about Joey. It’s impossible to express how much Joey meant to the Jewish community. He was a gifted teacher, and hero to thousands of Bar and Bat Mitzvahs. When our kids went to Jemicy, David Malin, Joey’s cousin, was the Principal. The Malin’s were born teachers. Almost everyone had Joey teach them their Haftorah’s, he had a way with them, that surpassed patience. His wonderful smile and personality put many Parents at ease, because we wouldn’t have known what to do without him. He was a true Mensh, and always made his way over to greet us at the many occasions we were at together. He was a true gift to our daughter and then our son, and he meant the world to us.
May his memory always be for a blessing. Thanks for sharing him with all of us!

Dear Lauri and Family,
Joey touched the lives of so many in the community. His talent working with children. especially special needs children, in preparation for their Bar/Bat Mitzvah was legendary. He always greeted me with a smile and a word of Torah. And whenever the Torah reading trope had a שלשלת, it filled him with joy. This is a great loss. המקום ינחם אתכם בתוך שאר אבלי ציון וירושלים

Dear Lauri and Family, Joey came into our lives when I was in need of a special person who could work with and teach my special needs son, so that he could become a Bar Mitzvah, in his own unique way. That became a reality because of Joey. He then taught my daughter during the most difficult time, covid, and led the most beautiful Bat Mitzvah is a completely unique outdoor setting.

Joey was the only one who could have taught my two sons their Bar Mitzvah portions. He had a gift for rambunctious boys who had no patience for Hebrew. Joey had the patience! He never scolded them; he was unfailingly supportive and optimistic. They so wanted to please Joey! When it came for my adult bat mitzvah, I also turned to Joey. Who else? I couldn't have done it without him either. We all remember Joey fondly. I have no doubt that his name will be for a blessing by so many.

It was very difficult to write about someone, as great as Joey was, when have known him for over 60 years. He and I worked together at Baida Caterers many years ago, and over the years we always bumped into one another somewhere in Baltimore. You always saw Joey with a smile on his face, and he was known and loved by almost everyone in Old Baltimore. As a lot of people have mentioned, he also taught three of my grandchildren their Bar & Bat Mitzvah lessons, in addition to being their Hebrew School Teacher. He will surely be missed by all.

To the Malin family I offer my deepest condolences. Joey tutored my son, Aaron , for his Bar Mitzvah and then tutored my grandson, Ronan, for his Bat Mitzvah.

Extremely sorry he died. He catered my wedding March 14,1976 at Carriage Hill Community Hall at Carriage Hill Apartments in Randallstown Md. The had a kosher kitchen. He did an outstanding job catering the wedding and he was the most reasonable kosher caterer at the time. He was very accommodating with the complete wedding and the price. He only charged $35.00 per plate. His picture is also in my wedding album. When I saw him at the Pikesville Giant, he knew me & the place the wedding was. He was very accommodating with my late parents & inlaws with the wedding bill& the wedding. More caterers should be like him. I know we are living in a time of inflation now. I feel like most people have died that attended my wedding. The band leader died when I came home from my honeymoon. Some people are still alive, thank G-d. but when I read Mr Malin died I feel like the main person who catered the wedding died & made me realize many people have died that attended my wedding. I hope he is in heaven with his family & friends & my late parents & in-laws & my late husband, Neal Elover & meets my late son Philip Elover which he never met.

We loved every minute that we shared at your house with you & Lauri weekly, over those years, and I will treasure the gift that you gave me of how to make the perfect honey cake.

Joey was my very best friend for 30 years. There wasn't anything he wouldn't do for me and I wouldn't do for him. He was 'one of a kind'!

My youngest son was tutored for his Bar Mitzvah at first by my friend Sara King. For two years she told me that when it was time for Mark to learn his Maftir, she would give me this man David Cohen's number. When the time finally arrived, she handed me a piece of paper, but the name
on it was different, it said Joey Malin and his phone number. I asked her why she changed her mind and gave me Joey's phone number and she looked up with a huge smile on her face and said
"I want you to call Joey Malin. You will receive the best Bar Mitzvah Tutor in the world" Then she told me "Joey and I would become best friends forever!" Before Sara passed away, Joey and I went to the nursing home she was staying in to visit her. We both went and gave Sara a kiss on the cheek and thanked her for recommending Joey, she was right, we were best friends forever!

I won't say goodbye to Joey, because he will remain alive in my heart forever!

I Love You, Joey, and my husband Joel loves you too!
Thank you for being our friend!

Dear Lauri and family, words cannot express the sadness I am feeling from the passing of dear Joey. He was a very special person to everyone and will be sadly missed by all. It seemed that his mission in life was to make everyone happy and full filled. I will miss the times we had together and his warm and delicious hospitality.

Joey was my Bat-Mitzvah tutor back in 1998. He was so patient and kind. Hebrew was not my best subject and I was really nervous about messing up, but he helped me learn my Torah portion and with his guidance I felt confident on the bimah. In the 15 years that followed, every time I saw him he greeted me with a big hug. He was such a kind spirit and I’m so sad to hear about his passing. A great loss for the world and the Chizuk Amuno community. My thoughts and prayers go to his family.

Opened my email for Sol Levinson to shock and sadness. I have known Joey since the 1960’s and yes, he has been a mensch all of his life. As a horde of other parents Joey tutored my daughter for her Bat Mitzvah,
Joey may not have remembered my name but always had a smile & hug. May Joey’s memory be of a blessing.
All the memories posted here are heartwarming so, Malin family, we have been blessed in many ways because of Joey.

Lauri and family,
I am so saddened to learn about Joey’s passing. I first met Joey when my sons were each getting ready to be bar mitzvahs. And then I got to know him so much better when he came to camp Airy to give the boys lessons while they were at camp. He was so patient and kind to them that I think that they didn’t even mind missing a little bit of camp just to see Joey. And it was a treat to me to sit in the office and listen to these boys sing their haftorahs. He will be truly missed by many people. Rest in peace, Joey, your memory will always be a blessing to all who knew you.

Lauri, I am so sorry for your loss. Joey was a wonderful kind man who helped so many kids through the difficult time of preparing for their bar/bat mitzvahs (especially my children). He will deeply be missed in the community. I hope the many memories you shared together will be a comfort to you during this difficult time.

I first met Joey in 1964 when my family took a trip from Albany to Washington. Before returning home, my father said he had family in Baltimore. Let’s stop and visit! Since then many, many interactions with Joey, especially after moving to Maryland and Gail and I settling down. One of our favorite things was to play Joey Malin geography. Whether in Hawaii, Curacou, or Florida whenever we met someone from Baltimore, we’d ask if they knew Joey. Invariably they did- he taught a relative their Bar or Bat Mitzvah lessons . Joey , you will be missed. Our deepest condolences to the entire family, Pete and Gail Sherer

Dear Lauri and Family, I am both very saddened & shocked to learn of Joey's passing. He was a Wonderful man and loved by all who knew him. He was kind to everyone.

Joey was a "staple" to the Owrutsky family. His parents lived on our street, he led the minyans for our family when my father passed away at a very young age, he tutored both of my sons for their Bar Mitzvah at BHC, and visited my Bubbe on Saturdays at the Jewish Convalescent Center. We are heartbroken at such a sudden loss, such a dear friend for life, such an amazing person who made others want to aspire because of all he did. Joey will truly be missed. May his memory always be for blessing. Eileen "Owrutsky" Gerke

This is a true jolt to the collective spirits of the Baltimore Jewish community. Among the many wonderful teachers of our tradition to our children, Joey served as a bedrock of that cohort. Always ready to teach Torah and Haftorah to any child no matter their skill level or learning disability, Joey was the smiling face of nurturing and support for so many. When we saw Joey in shul for b’nei mitzvot, we knew that that child had been taught in the most loving and compassionate way possible. Because of my many years as a sheliach, Joey always teased me with the undeserved title “Chazan Sheni”. The gaping hole he left in this community will be felt for generations. May his memory be for a blessing. Baruch Dayan Haemet

Lauri, I am so sorry for you and your family’s loss. Joey was such a kind and gentle person. He taught both of my children for their Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, with kindness, patience, humor, and gentle

Dear Lauri,

I knew Joey originally as a teenager visiting Malin's deli with my father many years ago. We bumped into each other about ten years ago while we were walking our dogs in the neighborhood, and continued to see each other there frequently.

You and Joey did a wonderful baby-naming for my granddaughter four years ago. Joey's unique ability to keep listeners of every background immersed and involved, and your musical talent, made it an incredible experience. He was truly one of a kind.

Dear Lauri and family,
I was heartbroken when I saw the news that Joey had passed away, it seems I just saw him a few weeks ago shopping at the Giant, and as always he gave me a big " Hello, Bobby "
I can't even count the number of times you, Joey and I worked together on Bar\Bat Mitzah's during my over forty years in the Catering business...As a matter of fact, We ( Martin's Caterers ) even built a special Ark to hold Joey's Torah to be used during the Services...We always referred to it as " The Malin Ark" and it was used exclusively by you and Joey ( no one else ever dared to use it )
Joey was truly loved by all the students who he helped tutor and mentor, I would watch him with those kids shortly before they would enter the Sanctuary, just he and the child, and as stressful a time as it was for the child, Joey would talk to them in a way that would calm them down, even the parents who were already seated never saw this, I was fortunate enough to witness this.
Although my family has a wonderful Rabbi, when my Beloved sister Joy passed away, I knew that Joey had to lead her funeral, as they had worked together years ago at Shalom Caterers, and Joey knew her best.
Joey, Rest well, you did a good job.

To the Malin Family,
I was so shocked and saddened to hear of Joey's passing. I first met him at his father's deli on West Baltimore Street where my father would take me when I visited the store where he worked. Joey worked with me at Har Sinai for several years. Whenever I would see him he would always ask about the family. Joey was a wonderful teacher and loved what he did, and it showed. He left a lasting impact on the community as a b'nai mitzvah teacher. My deepest and most heartfelt sympathy. May his memory be a blessing.

I don’t think there’s anyone in our Jewish community that wasn’t touched by Joey. His tutoring of our children made all the difference in becoming Bar/Bat Mitzvah. Joey was a mensch and we will miss him. We are sorry for your loss.

I was one of the lucky kids who had Joey as a bat mitzvah tutor. It was always a pleasure to see him at Chizuk Amuno over the years. While I grew up, Joey remained the same -- always with a big smile and a hug for "his kids". This year my son becomes a bar mitzvah, and just last week I was telling him how I had the most wonderful tutor. He made an impact on my life, and on so many in the Jewish community. May his memory be a blessing.

To the Malin Family,
We were so saddened to learn of Joey’s passing yesterday. Joey was instrumental in tutoring and preparing our daughter, Michele, for her Bat Mitzvah back in 1991. With her dyslexia, reading and writing English had been a struggle. But Joey knew the techniques on how to make reading Hebrew easier for her, and gave her the confidence and encouragement that she needed for that special day in her life. He was amazing. Over the past 30+ years, we ran into him often at either the Pikesville Giant, or at many other Bar & Bat Mitzvahs….always with that cheerful hello and hug. He always inquired about Michele, by name, as to how she was doing. Joey was one very special, unique, and caring man, who will be remembered with fondness by so many people within our community. Sending our deepest sympathy to his family and friends…

Condolences from the Lee Burkhead family. Joe was a part of our lives when I was a child. Born and raised Catholic I was introduced to his faith and celebrated many holidays with his family. He set a great example for a young child…that all people are good and loving regardless of backgrounds and faith. That we can celebrate together and care for one another despite our differences. I will always remember his kindness and the laughter. And the bagels!

Joey taught our son to prepare him for his bar mitzvah which was one of the most memorable times in our lives. Over the years I would see Joey and he always asked about me about my son by name ( now a husband and father). It saddens me that you have loss such a wonderful husband, father, and grandfather and friend too. May our stories add comfort during this difficult time to the Malin family and others who lives he touched.

As a DJ providing music at countless Bar/Bat Mitzvahs over the years (decades), I would see invited guest Smiling Joey regularly.

When I open my Sol Levinson my emails each morning, I hold my breath hoping not to recognize any name. This morning I didn't trust the name. I had to verify with a photo. Then I let our an audible "Oh no, no, no."

That quote kind of sums it up. He left such a positive impression on all who knew him. So long, Pal.

Dear Laurie and family,
I’m so saddened to read of Joey’s passing. He tutored both of my children for their Bar and Bat Mitzvah and his kindness and patience was enormous. He joked with us when he came over because he tutored just about every kid on our street at the same time and felt he should just move to Bonnie Meadow Circle. Years later I became his, and your, next door neighbor on Old Post and it was wonderful to reconnect. Shortly thereafter, I remarried and Joey officiated at the ceremony while you played guitar and sang. It was beautiful. Then just this past August I needed Joey to lead the service for my former husband’s funeral, and again, his compassion and warmth helped us through a difficult time. I will never forget him, but neither will all the people whose lives he touched in so many ways. May he Rest In Peace, knowing that his memory will last forever.
