  1. The sign is written in clear lettering….yet still my broken heart can’t come to terms with the reality that the Rosh Hayeshiva is not with with us anymore…Ainy Ainy Yorda Mayim Ki Rachok Mimeni Menachem Meishiv Nafshi…this is a truly sad day in Klal Yisrael…Boruch Dayan Haemes!
    Rebbe I already miss you so much! You had a Torahdike warmth like no other. You suffered your whole life. Now you can enjoy what you earned. Thank you for teaching the world that a regular American boy could shteig to become one of the Gedolei Hador! We were truly Gbentched to have you as our Rosh Hayeshiva.
