  1. Plz don’t use this story to start an internet bickering. Plz keep all posts about R’ Laskin. I used to see him in the mountains from time to time when he used to daven in Fallsburg Yeshiva. He was huge tzaddik, an ish emes. Bd”e. YZ”B.

  2. Rabbi Laskin was my Rabbi growing up in Woodbourne, New York. He taught me the meaning of the word pious and he lived a life of true learning and blessings. I admired him greatly and thought of him often. I am horribly saddened.

  3. I remember Rabbi Laskin from when he was the English principal at the South Fallsburg Yeshiva, many years ago. Whenever a teacher did not show up he would substitute the class and teach things about Halacha or Emunah and Betochon, or Parshas Hasovuah etc. On rainy days he would remind us of the goodness of rain and that we should be happy for it rather than complain. He had a golden heart and whenever a bochur had a problem in class Rabbi Laskin A”h would not yell at him or punish him, but rather would talk to him about ways of improving, about self worth, about Kidush Hashem and chilul Hashem,(a few of the English teachers were goyim).
    He was a big mumche in being mechanech, with an understanding and feeling for the issues of American children. Thus He was zoche to children(and in turn Grandchildren) who are true Bnai Torah.
    Hashem should send a nechomo to his whole family B’toch She’ar aveiley Tzion v’Yerushalayim.
    Zechuso Yogein Oleinu V’al kol Yisroel.
