  1. Who could ever forget the sight of watching him learn together with his long time night seder chavrusoh in Coventry Bais Hamedrash. I would watch and listen too. He learned with such clarity – his yedios was breathtaking!! His middos tovos and his ne’imas was extraordinary. Devastating news to the Oilam Hatorah…

  2. A special man. A fixture in the Coventry Bais Medrash every night for years. I will always remember his consistent slow and carful davening in the 1030 minyan.

  3. Cool Masmid is right. He learned for years w/ Rocky in Coventry Shul. He had a vast amount of yedias. He was always calm & smiling. What a jewel of a person. And altho he didn’t mingle much w/ the olam, everyone in shul knew he was a special person. BD”E.
