  4. Reb Efraim, the tzaddik? The ben torah, the yarey shamayim m’neurav?
    No words.
    Hashem came into his vineyard for the creme de la creme, the ish ha’ashkoles, the giant amongst us.

  5. tzar li alechah achi! A lamdan and baki, with whom I learned bechavrusa 30 years ago in South Fallsburg, a yarei shamayim the likes of which are seldom found anymore, an ayin tovah, and a very refined person. I will miss you greatly, Rav Ephraim! BDE
