    Rabbi Yolles touched many of us just starting out on the path. He was the real thing. So incredibly emesdich through and through. He always knew the right thing to say. I’m crying as I think of how much I’ll miss him. So gentle, sweet and caring….

    I believe he was a nephew. I spoke to Rev Hirshel a few weeks ago and everything that was said about him is so true. So gentle, caring and sensitive. He told me the story of a certain rebbe in Williamsburg( I think it was the skerlerner but not certain) he would go out from his home to the shul every motzei shabbos.

    I used to drive him around when he visited the Bay Area when I first became baale teshuvah . Mesiriot nefesh was the derech,chesed was his strength and fulfilling the Rebbe’s will with joy was his will. I will miss him very much. Together we saved a Kohen from missionairies and from being buried in a goyische cemetary and I watched him teach Torah to three Jews in a traife restaurant on their lunch hour with platters of bacon floating by. He was a big light and I will miss my dear friend very much,needless to say.We all will.- Dovid… Read more »

    Definitely could not be the Skulener Rebbe because he came to America much later. I wish you could find out who it actually was.

    Reb Efroim’s wife was the sister of Reb Hershel’s father, so he was a nephew. In addition to Reb Efroim being a first cousin of Reb Elazer (father of Reb Hershel).

    Reb Elazar, the Sambor Rebbe in Montreal was the son of Reb Yehuda Zvi Yolles, son and successor of the tzaddik Reb Uri Yolles, first Sambor Rebbe

    יהודי שאש של יראת שמים ואהבת ישראל בערה בקרבו כל הזמן. חבל על דאבדין ולא משתכחין
    המקום ינחם את משפחתו בתוך שאר אבלי ציון וירושלים ואך טוב וחסד בטוב הנראה והנגלה ימצא אותם תמיד כל הימים
    תהא נשמתו צרורה בצרור החיים ויקיצו וירננו שוכני עפר והוא בתוכם
    תיכף ומיד ממש
