Enough of this Golus

As on of is students, I can attest to his amazing knowledge and wiiling to pass it on to his students. My heart feels broken. He should go up and tell the Rebbe (because he will surely have a place near him) how his children are suffering in Golus and Moshiach must come right away.

As an old Bais Rivkah student from Montreal I am forever greatful for his teaching me Chumash and Halacha as no other teacher has taught me before. Because of Rabbi Wenger, I am able to open up a Chumash or Shulchan Aruch and read any Meforash. He was a brilliant educator and will be sorely missed.

I have such fond memories of Rabbi Wenger as my teacher in high school. This is a great loss to the everyone. the amount of knowledge i acquired throughout the years as his student is incredible. Aside from the many halachos I learnt with such a clearness , he also managed to impart to the students many important morals which have an impact til this day.

As a former student of BRHS, it’s so sad to see such
a gr-8 man/teacher taken from our midst. Someone who was so knowledgeable in TANACH & Halacha! He will surely be missed by all!

The last couple of times I’ve seen him, he always had a smile on his face & asked how I was & my kids.

May he beseech Hashem to bring MOSHIACH NOW!!!

Rabbi Wenger A”H will always be remembered fondly be me.
Even though he never officially taught me he substituted my class a couple of times. One thing that always stood out to me, that i think all teachers and true mechanchim should emulate, is that he truly cared for each syudent and if they had a question he would answer it truthfully and take tim eto really focus on taht question….
Rabbi Wenger, you will sorely be missed

where do I begin… When I think of rabbi Wenger obm, I remember him as someone who truly cared about us, his students. Whatever he taught, he made it seem real to us. He always added in a little sense of humor to all his classes. He answered every question with patience and took every question seriously. He was in school every day, no matter what the situation. He always had everyone in mind. I remember him once telling me that we should give the secretary a gift because she made all of our photocopies for our play! Whenever I… Read more »

What a wonderful, awe inspiring, devoted, caring, and humorous man who gave his all to all his students. May his memory be a blessing to all who were fortunate to know him. As a former student of Rabbi Wenger’s in Brookline, MA at New England Hebrew Academy I become more firmly entrenched in Yiddishkeit. Oh the Shabbatons he would chaperone were just super!
