  1. he taught in many cities through out the USA as well as Mexico, a true soldier of torah in its purest form. A talmud of Reb Yisroel Gussman, the Vilna dayan

  2. I don’t think he was “the” vilna dayan . He was a dayan on R’ Chaim oizers bes din . His name was R’ yisruel zev Gust- man !

  3. GREAT person, I remember him playing paddle ball every Friday at pine park.was so nice to see a yid Talmud Chacham doing some chilutz atzumois

  4. My son was lucky enough to have him as a Rebbi for 1 year. He left an amazing impression on him and earned an incredible degree of respect and reverence at a time when the world is becoming more and more cynical.
