  1. As the Telzer Rosh Yeshiva was maspid tonight in cleveland, R’ Refael was an ish kasher. What a chashuve person we have lost! Woe to us… It was such an honor for our city to have such a family stay with us and we cry for the loss we now share with the family we count as one of our own. May he be a meilitz yosher for his choshuve almana and his little kiderlach. And may this purim be a yeshua for all cholei yisroel.
