  1. He was also a RY at R.I.E.T.S. for well over half a century and a talmid of HaGaon RYD Soloveitchik ZTL

    your choices in referring to him are reminiscent of an article he attacked correctly.

  2. BDE. The Rav, ZL, was an incredible torah scholar and educator to literally tens of thousands of talmidim but also globally respected for his secular scholarship in the fields of biology, medicine and bioethics. He showed great dignity and resilience when confronted with allegations that he had sometimes misstated the views of his shver . Whether you agreed or disagreed with his opinions, they were always well documented and clearly articulated.

    Kevura will take place at the Monsey Cemetery

  4. LBJ: He disparaged certain rabbonim in certain yeshivos, who like certain posters, spouted nareshkeit about matters of science and halacha of which they knew nothing.
