  1. His Rebbetzin is the choshuva Menaheles of Bais Yaakov High School, where she has devoted her life for the chinuch ha’banos of thousands of girls – despite all the obvious impossible difficulties.

    Baruch Dayan Ha’emes.

  2. Very Sad. He was my Rebbi in Pe-er HaTorah.
    We got along Great. Besides being a Talmid Chochom, He Had a great smile.
    I will always remember him Like that.

  3. Rabbi shechter was my rebbi, one could not ask for a kinder caring rebbi. at the end of our school year they would give out awards to student whom did well, i went over to rabbi scechter as to why i had not gotten one, i had applied myself and i thought i deserved one, rabbi shechter started crying…he didnt need to say anything, just watching him was enough for me, it made a huge impact, more then any award can accomplish. this was over a decade ago, i will never forget it. thank you rebbi
