    He was my chavrusa in yeshiva as well, and he was more then your average chavrusa. He tought me how to learn a shtikel Gemara the proper way with mefarshim that probeby very few teachers tought me throughout my yeshiva years. You will be very missed for who you were.

    He was also my chavursa for a few months. When he met me last year after not seeing him for more than 15 years it was like you were his best friend. He was a varma yid. And he remembered everything. What a guy.

    Great loss of a special man

    Halevai he would have been able to teach the mashgichim of today’s yeshivos to be mechanech without knassim. The real deal – teaching in a way that internalizes. Today’s system teaches via “yirah” – do or it you’ll be out. It lasts not a minute past the paying of the knas. Our youth are unfortunately proof that the system is failing – big time.

    Thank you for writing – maybe the people in position of mechanchim and mashpiim can take this concept on in memory of Ariel.

    Ariel will be missed

    Thank you for putting into words some of the things we want to say. I knew Ariel as a child, deep , sincere, sensitive. I never IMAGINED what an impact he would have on so many. He will be sorely missed And he has become yet another impetus for us to cry out for Moshiach AND for techiyat hameitim
