  1. Shocking. R’ Shaul’s hasmadah and his integrity in learning were matched only by his self-effacing humility. As someone who has worked with him on various projects, all I can say is chaval al di’avdin velo mishtakchin. May he be a meilitz yosher for his dear family and all of Klal Yisrael.

  2. Oyyyyyyy… Such a tragedy. Hashem, give atrength to the family and Klal Yiaroel.

    What a loss…
    There are no words…
    Not enough tears…

    Hashem… Test us no longer… Just send Moshiach Tzidkainu!

    An aching soul.

  3. What a special person. So devestating! His family should have nechamos and many simchos.

    Also, I believe he has 11 children, not 9.

  4. Special special true ovad hashem and true yorei shamayim and an onuv that raised with his isha tzidkunyus a special torahdikah family … they should see no more pain only simchas
