Might be 42 years ago but he was a warm soul, a kind heart, a creative mind whose passion to nurture, guide, coach and mentor has helped me immeasurably through my young and adult, personal and professional lives.

Rabbi Greenbaum always said hello and was genuinely interested to see how you were doing. Always warm and friendly. A real chossid and dugma Chaya of how a chossid should live his life. Will be missed.
