  3. The Rosh Yeshiva was an ois-ge-arbeted eish emes – always refining himself. I remember how even the heels of his shoes were worn evenly in the middle – for even the way his physical walking was examined and made yashar. His accuracy in tefila was not common knowledge, and he was greatly respected by by Reb Meir Zenitsky – the late dikduk teacher of the mechon l’mechanchim. His anivus was outstanding – in all my years in yeshiva- maybe once- did I ever hear him raise his pleasant melodic voice above a normal speaking level (The rosh yeshiva normally spoke in quiet – almost whisper like- voice. Even when we would hock the rosh yeshiva in shiur, he would pleasantly listen,repeat our point and consider what was said, before responding.
    Oy davdin v’lo mistakchin! y’hi zichro baruch!

  4. Baruch Dayan HaEmes!
    Who could forgot the Rosh Yeshiva Zt”l’s Neeimus and Hadras Ponim he had for everyone in all of his Matzovim?

    Who could forgot the tremendous Simchas HaTorah the Rosh Yeshiva had that would envelop the entire room when he gave shiur?

    Who could forget the D’veykus BaTefillah the Rosh Yeshiva had as an humble Eved when he was Shofech Sicho L’fnei Melech Malchei HaMelochim?

    Who could forget the Rosh Yeshiva’s Yom Kippur as he stood ENTIRE time at his Shtender davening and learning?

    The Rosh Yeshiva had a very rough Tekufah these last few years and it should serve as a Kappora for the Dor.

    HKB”H should continue to grant the Rebbitzin Tlit”a strength in this terrible loss. The Choshuveh Mishpacha and Talmidim are true Yesomim in this Ais Tzorah.

    U’Macha Hashem Elokim Dimah May’al Kol Ponim Amein V’Amein

  5. Baruch Dayan HaEmes What a tragedy we caused cause we cant get our act together & do teshuva
    WHAT ARE WE ALL WAITING FOR? has klal yisroel gotten the message from Hashem-waiting for us to start doing teshuva-have YOU done anything yet? how many more tragedies & Tzaddikim will it take C”V before we wake up & start doing teshuva? OVER 80 GEDOLEI HADOR have passed away within the past year R”L. HOW MANY MORE DO WE NEED TO LOSE C”V to let hashem know that we get the message for klal yisroel to start doing teshuva ASAP?

  6. Boruch Dayan HaEmes

    Always completely dedicated to Torah and Yiras Shomayim. So super aidel, yet firm

  10. Boruch Daiyan HaEmes!

    Rabaynu was the last member of the Chabura of that generation of the great giants of Telzer Gedolay Torah: Rav Rephael Boruch Sorotskin, ZT’L, Rav Mordechai Gifter, ZT’L, Rav Chaim Yaakov Stein, ZT’L, Rav Pesach Stein, ZT’L, and now, Rav Eizek Ausband, ZT’L.

  11. Boruch Dayan Hoemes.

    Besides all comments above, I would to add the chinuch and yedias Hatore the Rosh Yeshiva gave his children , they all knew the TANACH at very young age, and his son R. Chaim Mordechai , was im our shiur at the YESHIVA GUEDOLA at a very young age (about 12)with bochurim 18 years old!
    The Rosh Yeshive should be a MELITZ YOSHER for all klal yisroel , VEYOMAR LETZOISEINU DAI !
