    I once heard that the Chofetz Chaim told him that a Rov who is not ready to take upon himself to teach Torah to the youth has no business being a Rov. Rav Kurtz took this to heart and spent many hours working with the young people in Rochester. There is a large family in Monsey who originally lived in Rochester, Rav Kurtz was very close to their father and taught a few of the children privately. If anoyone wants to hear first-hand information, contact me (through Boruch).

    Rosh Hakolel you are so correct. my Shver AH was an orphan from his father in Rochester. The Rav ZATZAL took him to Torah Vadaas and he became a devoted talmid chacham who spent his life in rabbanos and learning. His son is one of the leading Maarbetzei Torah as well as a third generation of harbazas Torah and kolel leit. All thanks to Rav Kurtz ZATZAL.
    Rav Hutner ZATZAL was very machshiv him and sent talmidim to his levaya.
