    May his neshama have an a liya

  4. To # 4 What do you mean by former? There are still plenty of frum yidden on the Lower East Side, including HaRav Dovid and HaRav Reuvein Feinstein Shlit”a.

  5. Wow how sad! I was in your shiur 10 years ago and it was an amazing shiur. I still remember the peshatim that we were learing at the time. We were learing Ketzad Ha’regel. Your shiurim were always clear crisp and just so nice to listen to. I am in shock and my heart is bleeding. You will be sorely missed by all your talmidim.
