    as aboy growing up in montreal i remember Reb Aron as one of the landmarks in the Yeshiva and a real montreal’er
    he was one of a kind, a unforgettable personality,always with a good word and a great sense of humer, he took pride in being a Tomim.
    may his neshomo have a lichtigen Gan Eden

    He had something interesting to say about any topic. A sharfe kop, A great chess player. Very organized and could add in his head faster than you could say 1-2-3. Very personable and charming. Many times he kvelled about his Zayde, they don’t make such Yidden anymore. He enjoyed a good joke, with his friends, like David Richler Sheyichye. He was very meduyak, and he had a great memory. Yehi zichro Boruch

    In 5705 the Frierdike Rebbe sent him with a group of young bochurim to Chicago to strengthen the Yeshiva there. Among this group was Rabbi Leibel Groner שליט”א. Before leaving they were zoche to a special Yechidus which was later printed in Sefer Hasichos 5705.
