  1. A Talmud of Reb Aharon,a true anav…would talk to any pashuta person as if you were a friend… He made everyone feel like they were close to him. He will be sorely missed .may hashem erase the tears from all our faces….

  2. BDE.

    I Remember him very well from Boro Park. We Davend together in NEWLATZ, and his parents lived across the street from me on 45th street.

    His KIBUD AV VEM was really something to learn from him. He would always come over to his parents and visit them day and night.

    His BEIN ADAM LCHAVRO was amazing. It didn’t matter that he was much older than me and my siblings, he spoke to us so nicely, and always greeted us with a big smile on his face.

    His SIMCHAS HACHAYIM was something to learn from. I remember a lot of years ago, he was not abel to walk, and he had major surgery, he never complained, and when you asked him how he was doing, he replied with the same smile that he always had, i am doing great, even though he was in so much pain.

    To his family. המקום ינחם אתכם בתוך אבלי ציון וירושלים ולא ישמע עוד שבר בישראל.

    Neighborhood on 45th street right across from where your grandparents lived.

  3. I agree of all the comments,
    I worked with him in diamonds 1967 .This was my first job, and he helped me like a fathers leads his child,
    hamokio etcx
