  1. He may be a tremendous baal Tzeddakah to the rest of the world BUT here in Los Angeles we view him as one of our own. You don’t need to be a big organization to get his help. Everyone can ask for help and will receive it. By looking at the wedding guests you saw his chashivus. Not only was their a representative from almost every Jewish organization, but all of LA was invited. No matter what your bank account held. He and his wife and parents are erliche yidden the way Hashem wants us to be.

  2. Mazel tov!
    He’s also chairman of Mishmeres Hasholom – a choshuva huge Israel-based organization that spreads shmiras haloshon. So he does it all in a big way: lots of shmiras halashon and bein odom lechaveiro and loads of supporting Torah. He is a gizbor ne’eman – may Hashem bentch him with loads of nachas and continued phemonimal financial success because he knows what to do with money!

  3. The chasuna was beyond beautiful and was shared by nearly 2,000 people that were there including a VERY long list of choshuveh roshei yeshiva and rabanim from across the world including
