  1. Rabbi Rosenthal has a chair and table gemach which he runs with such care for the borrower. I have shiurim in my home many times and have borrowed chairs from him at least a dozen times, or more. Each time it is as if I was doing him a favor. Sometimes it only works out to pick up the chairs late, he will never turn me down, even though he wakes up to daven k’vasikin.
