  1. The niftar was a huge talmid chochom. I have known him for almost 10 years and always saw him with a sefer or talking in learning. He spent his last yomtov in lakewood and I was so amazed that a person with so much yesurim had such a strong willpower to live and be healthy. He asked all to daven for him but also had a long list of cholim that needed a yeshua. May he be a mailitz yosher on his family and they should bear no more tzar.

  2. Pinny is one of the biggest Counselors and volunteers in Bonei Olam of Lakewood. He has been a shaliach tov to helping tens of Lakewood couples attaining their dreams. When he would visit his father in the hospital his father would tell him not to shmooze a lot to him rather he should medically guide all the couples that called him.

  3. he was a real brain and stood up for things that many were not comfortable to address he was a real “gadol” may he be a mailitz yosher for the choshiva family especially yoely and piny who are both choshiva yungerleit

  4. Rabbi Wohlhendler was a talmud of Rabbi Yonah Glauber a big marbots torah in the satmar yeshiva back in the 60`its interesting to note that rabbi yonah glaubers rebbetsin was also nifter this last shabbos she was 108 years old

  5. My father was also a talmud from Reb Yona Glauber A/H and he told me that Reb Yona used to say that he prides himself with a talmud like reb yehoshua heshel and that he has a strong will to learn and a heart of gold at age 13 reb yehoshua was tested by reb yonah his rebbi in shisho sidra mishna and had every reference answered, Chaval al debadim velo mishtachvin
