    This is a request for more information.
    1. At what time today is the Levaya scheduled to take place.
    2. I advised orally that the Levaya would take place at the Mirrer yeshiva rather than Rav Avigdor Miller’s shul in Flatbush.

    Could you please advise re: both items?

    Thank you.

  2. He was a wonderful rebbe who really instilled yiras shomayim in his fourth grade talmidim.

    Back in the 1960’s at Yeshiva of Eastern Parkway, he insisted that each boy come to school wearing a tie.

  3. what a wonderful Rebbi. I was in his 4th grade class in the early 1960’s.

    May he be a Meylitz Yosher to his family, his talmedim, and all Klal Yisroel.

  4. An ehrlicher yid, a gifted rebbe.
    May he be a maylitz yosher to all of Klal Yisroel.
    Also, he was a brother in law of HaGoan HaRav Chaim Zimmerman Z”L
