  1. I was zoche to have Rabbi Goldberg zt”l as a rebbe in Yeshivat Or Chaim. He was always on fire, so passionate and in love with the Torah, and tried to share that with his dear talmidim.

  2. For the zechus of this great tzaddik’s neshama- we should all take a few moments to watch some of the precious divrei torah left to us online.
