    I helped Mrs. Steinmetz A”H with Bikur Cholim and I was so privileged as a newly frum student to spend time with Mrs. Steinmetz and her husband A”H. Each time I would say Al Ha Michya or Borei Nefashos from the siddur because I didn’t know it off by heart and Rabbi Steinmetz would say “Oh, just like the Rebbe wants, for us to say it from the siddur.” it made me feel so good

    AS A STUDENT, FRIEND AND AS RABBI STEINMETZ PUT IT “A BEN BAIS” OF HIS HOME I WILL FOREVER BE THANKFUL FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO MEET LEARN AND SHARE TIME WITH THE RABBI AND HIS FAMILY. HIS INSIGHTS ARE LEGENDARY AND THE KINDNESS OF MRS. STEINMETZ WAS HEARTWARMING, NOT FORGETTING HER FAMOUS HOMEMADE “RUM BALLS” SERVED DURING LEARNING WERE YUMMY AND HELPED THE TORAH LEARNED TO BE DIGESTED PROPERLY. GIANTS BOTH. 🙂

    Please make Zvi Yair’s three volumes of poetry more available to would-be readers in Crown Heights. I got two of my three volumes by having people bring them from Israel on separate occasions, and one as a gift from his grandchild (thank you if you’re reading this!). They are some of my most treasured possessions. Please re-publish them, in both Hebrew and English, and distribute them in Crown Heights stores!
