  1. OY, RAV HERTZMAN! WHAT A TZADDIK. A REAL OIVED HASHEM IN THE OLD SENSE, ALWAYS THINKING AND TEACHING MUSSER, WITH HAPPINESS AND LIVELINESS.
    HE DIDN’T HAVE CHILDREN. LET’S LEARN MISHNAYOS FOR ELCHONON YOSEF BEN SHEMUEL.
    ZT”L.

  2. He wrote the biography or was the main source of information on Reb Chatzkel zl in hanhogos and shmuessen. Yehi zichro boruch.

  3. Oy l’dor yasome, especially those who were never zocheh to hear Rav Chaim Shmulevitz z”l, Rav Beinish Finkel z”l, and Rav Nochum Pertzovitz z”l! We are rapidly nearing the end of an era, with the p’tira of pre-WWII Mirrer torah.

  4. Although he never had children of his own he has many children and grandchildren from those whom he brought back from the edge of assimilation and carries the sechar of all those doros yeshorim. May he be a meilitz yosher for us all
