    The Rav was a wonderful man. I was Bar Mitzvah in his shul and went to his hebrew school. I first met to him with my parents in 1960 when we move to Spring Valley. He was a very strong man when it was mincha time if there was not 10 men at shul he would go with his car down on main street and pull grown men off the street. Every grown man would listen to him and get in the car. I love him and missed him. His outer demeanor was some what stern but he loved every yid. These are memories from a young boy.
