  1. Oish. I davened in his shul a LOT as a bochur growing up in Boro Park. The Ruv was a massive Talmid Chacham. He also gave around 8 shiuim a DAY. Big loss. BDE.

  2. It is Lakewood news because he has many former mispalelim/ talmidim that currently live in Lakewood.

    Also, Lakewood is Ihr Hatorah & he was Torah!

  3. He stood for true Torah ‘fin da heim’ – gave up many things to be able to accomplish things for yiddishkeit that few could do as well as him. He never looked for kovod and was always upholding strong torah fundamentals – It is an unfathomable loss and he really is one of the last tzaddikim of that caliber- We are all orphans, and may he be a true meilitz yosher for klal yisroel and beg Hashem to send the Geulah
