As a young bochur in Russia he (together with his sister Bassiah a”h) risked his life many times to save other bochurim by going to the army office and asking for papers showing that he was too young for the army. He would then give those papers to bochurim who were on the run from the Red Army (which was practically a death sentence for a frum bochur). Obviously if he had been caught it would’ve been his life at stake. זאל ער זיין א גוטע בעטער פאר אונז אלע
