I recently had a complicated problem and immediately thought, if only I could consult Rabbi Greenwald! He was an incredible resource who would literally do anything or go anywhere to help another Yid- or anyone, for that matter, Jew or gentile. He just loved humanity. Is there anyone out there today who even comes close??
Your Rov shlit”a.
I am not sure of the intended message in your comment. But one way I might interpret it was dismissive, suggesting that whoever someone’s Rov is, that he might fill in the boots left empty by the passing of Rabbi Ronnie Greenwald ZT”L. Well, I beg to differ. There is no average Rov, regardless of the many possible maalos he has, that can achieve the extremes of Ahavas Yisroel that we were privileged to observe in R’ Ronnie ZT”L. I do not say that no one can come close, but just an average Rov, no. He was an enigma, presenting himself to many as just another funny guy, while he was a powerhouse behind the scenes. His accomplishments were in so many areas, and his mesiras nefesh was light years greater than anyone else we know. I sincerely hope you were not being dismissive, suggesting that anyone can do what R’ Ronnie ZT”L did.
How you could have read dimissiveness into my post is beyond me. He was a gadol in ahavas Yisroel, and we miss him intensely.
Monseymom read the post again, he was answering Joseph not you
Reread my comment. It was directed at Joseph, not you. You are reaching out looking for someone. The way I read Joseph’s comment, it sounded like any Rov would do fine. I find that dismissive of R’ Ronnie’s gadlus. I hope I read it wrong.
TLIK, no I certainly didn’t mean it the way you question, and I’m not being dismissive of Reb Ronnie z’l in any way. I simply intended to direct MonseyMom on whom to consult for her problem. In the abstract her Rov is the best address, and he can guide her elsewhere if need be.
