  1. I knew R’ Hillel personally and this will be a great loss to the Klal as a whole everyone who knew him just loved him and he loved everyone he was never seen without a smile and of course a true Ben Torah who sat and learned

  2. BDE he was a genuine younger man loved to learn.
    As a side note someone should post which flight they are taking him on so if there is a Kohen on the flight they can change their flight.

  3. BD”E what a great loss. Was such a special Talmud Chachom. Maybe his wife, who’s a great woman in her own right and family have Nachuma.
