  1. The Rosh Hayeshiva was a TzadiK he was mekarev hundreds if not thousands of talmidim he had a tremendous koach in relating to each bochur on his level what a loss for klal yisroel

  2. Baruch dayan ha’emes. He as a very special yid, and a true talmid chochom.

    This is a tremendous blow to klal yisroel.

    May the RBS’H bring mashiach very fast.

  3. Bde i was with him when he passed. I never knew someone as special and caring as him. He will always be in our hearts. I wish the family especialy the rebetzin much peace. I dont have any more words to say there arent words to describe what a man the rosh was

  4. Oy
    Rebbi how your love will be missed when I was in Yeshiva u treated me like a son with such caring and u where just so modest about who u were and how much u have done withus all

    And all the people that haven’t got a chance to meet u rebbi will just have to hear it so in short it is hard for me to express how hard it is no words can describe the gasping hole may u be a melitz upset for me and all of klal. Yisroel
    Besros. Tovos

  5. Name is Yerachmiel Shlomo ben Nachman / Raizel, please learn mishnayos

    Big chances are he had an effect of your life whether you know it or not.

    Besorot tovot

  6. I’m a healthcare provider who worked with the rabbi. I’ve come across hundreds of patients, none like R’ Rothenberg! He was the most caring person I’ve ever come across… He cared about everyone.. He told me he was davening for me and my family when I was supposed to be davening for him! He prayed for the well being of all who crossed his path. Jews and non Jews alike revered him. So normal yet soooooo special. I know I’ve changed from meeting the rabbi. He’ll be missed and remembered by all who met him for ever. Not many out there like him.
