  1. Baruch Dayan Emes!
    A very chasuhva Rov who led his shul without fanfare for some 35-40 years. I grew up going to Bais Isaac Tzvi and my father was from the original 10 mispallelim there.
    I believe he was a Telzer talmid.
    He was unwell for quite some time (10 years, at least) and had gotten progressively weaker over the years.
    I remember how he would count sefirah – with a “bren” and extreme kavanah!
    He was very midakdek in his mitzvos. I recall that on Pesach he would cover the door handles and faucets in the shul. (The shul was also a daycare center and there were lots of grimy crumbly hands touching it all year!)

    His Pirkei Avos shiurim were heartfelt and showed that he internalized what he was teaching.

    “Tehei Nishmaso Tzerura B’tzror Hachayim. “
