  1. What a tiere neshama. He gets alot of credit for setting the standards of kashrus in Lakewood. The KCL should be very indebted to him.TNTBH
    Where is the shiva?

  2. He was a vey intelligent kind hearted person. He was a Talmud Muvhak of Reb Shmuel Rozovsky and Reb Nuchum ztzl. He was a serious Talmud Chochom.
    What is the Levaya info in E”Y? Place and time?
    He has a brother with a family.

  3. BDE. R’ Hershel was such a pleasant person. Always insightful and considerate of others. Somehow just bumping into him every now and then, added a modicum of stability to the hectic lives many of us lead. Yehi Zichro Baruch
