    Rabbi Lustig is surely responsible for the remarkable methodology of running the yeshiva that I remember, eg the children being tested by class test, and their section principal and also the principal of the whole school testing each and every child on occasion, so he knows what’s going on.

    Mega respect!

    Rabbi Lustig was my principal for 8 years beginning 41 years ago. He had a major impact on my life that lasts until today.

    Thank you for being so dedicated, professional, and a real Mentch!!

    Rabbi Lustig served as an outstanding menahel and mechanech during all the decades he served his talmidim and mechanchim in Oholei Torah. He was always attentive and respectful to everyone including the parents. All my boys and a number of fortunate einiklach were lucky to go thru the system with Rabbi Lustig at its helm. They learned so much mentchlichkeit and derech Eretz from this unique, unassuming and exceptional personality. He has directed so many boys onto the right path with his soft, Eidel and pleasant demeanor. Chaval that Oholei Torah will be minus this great and unique mechanech on… Read more »

    I remember when my family moved to CH from Israel 40 years ago.. I learned in OT for a year. My Rebbi once sent me with a closed note to Rabbi Lustig- I was nervous from what’s coming. To my surprise, Rabbi Lustig spoke with me with such warmth and patience, I was actually looking foward to be sent again to the principals office. I wish I could say that about my kids Menahel.

    I am not someone that comments on articles. Yet when I read that Rabbi Lustig שיחי is retiring, I realized that I have never expressed my appreciation to him as a child or as an adult. I have so much to say that the space on these lines will not suffice. As a student that was taught and disciplined by Rabbi Lustig, I need to say that reading about his retirement made me cry. I have very deep respect for Rabbi Lustig, a principal who has shaped the lives of thousands of Oholei Torah’niks around the world, amongst them many… Read more »
