  1. I remember Sheya from Tzehlimer Yeshiva and from Torah Vodaas.
    We met periodically over the years. Whenever we met it was like a friendship of Dovid Yonosson, we hugged and kissed.
    He was so dear to me.
    I have his photo and notice of his Levaye hanging in my office.

  2. He was a very impressive man. He was a talented businessman who had his hashkofos and heart in the right pace. When I had meetings with him, business related, his emuna and hisbatlus to the One above always came thru, which was a lesson and a kiddush Hashem. He will be very missed by all who knew him.

  3. 2 anecdotes come to mind – i once called him if he could give a job to an older bucher w/ some issues 7 years later that yungerman is still happily & gainfully employed at allee
    who makes a hachnosas sefer torah sunday before pesach a day that many cant attend , when miniatures & log cakes are not avail… and much of the gashmius that he easily could afford would not be avail. the answer is SHIYA why? because his ” boys ” were learning in e”y & he didnt want to be mechabed the torah by bringing them home and ” shtering the zman” yehi zichro boruch
