  1. What agreat man! He was very helpful in setting up mosdos hachinuch in Lakewood and spent much time to make sure that they would succeed. His superb advise will be sorely missed. His past advise has been implemented in these Mosdos and will forever be a z’chus for his neshomo. Yhei Zichro Boruch

  2. HE WAS NOT ONLY THE DEAN OF THE SEMINARY HE WAS ALSO THE PRINCIPAL OF BREUERS HIGH SCHOOL. I SAT IN HIS OFFICE MANY TIMES. HE WAS A GREAT EDUCATOR AND DEFINITELY DID NOT THROW OUT GIRLS. A BRILLIANT MAN!

  3. He would give his students as a wedding gift a plaque with the Passuk, “v’anochee — and I and my household will serve Hashem” It really set the tone to start married life aimed at that direction!

  4. He was also the shver of Rabbi Yechiel Blitz R’M in Yeshiva Gedolah of Detroit as well as the Principal of Yeshiva Bais Yehuda back in the old Jewish Neighborhood on Dexter for many years before moving back to the East Coast.
