And the seasons they go round and round
And the painted ponies go up and down
We’re captive on the carousel of time
We can’t return we can only look
Behind from where we came
And go round and round and round
In the circle game

Rabbi Abraham Abraham, Coney Island Strongman; RIP

Posted in coney island, Hero, Legendary, Love by Lori E. Seid on 23 May 2011

Leader of the Ice Breakers, ‘The Rabbi’ loved to swim the ocean in the dead of winter. The group is also known for their proud, public displays’ of strength, almost 1/2 the members well into their 70’s, The Rabbi himself was 77.

Rabbi Abraham was crowned King Neptune of  The Mermaid Parade in 1999. During the parade he would constantly stop the flow of traffic to dance the jig & do one-armed pushups.

He sat in an ice-cube igloo he built, for 110 hours, shattering David Blaine’s record of 63 -landing the spot in the Guinness Book of World records.

An actual ordained Rabbi, Abraham Novitsky never led an official synagogue. Those who knew him believed his synagogue was the beach.

I took this photo of The Rabbi at the last Mermaid Parade, 2010.

With all the crowd, costumes & chaos, he still stood out & above it all.  So much so,  I’m sure I have a photo of him from every trip I took out to Coney Island, year after year, no matter what season it was.

Abraham was the very essence of Coney Island and it’s character, and there will be a giant void without him strolling the board walk, flexing his muscles, twirling his mustache and his flashing that loving smile .

Rest in Peace Dear Rabbi Abraham Abraham.
