We love you uncle Avrum and you should be happy and healthy til 120!

Reb Avrohom is the real thing

I was in Reb Avrohoms Shiur the first year he became a Magid Shiur in Oholei Torah, i vividly remember his Koch inlearning he dedication and love to his Talmidim and Koch in the Rebbes Sichos what a genuine chasidishe Rosh Yeshivah.

May Hashem grant arichus yomim vishonim al mamlachto, together with his Mispaha.

Problem is that not all teachers “deserve” to be treated this way. Maybe if more teachers deserved such treatment, they would get it. The love that R’ Avrum has for his students is hard to find…May Hashem bless you to continue this great work. Our talmidim need you!

In my time if you brought a present to the Rosh Yeshiva (Reb Yosef Goldberg O”H) a קצות or even only a שב שמעתתא he would have been very happy, Todays R.Y. are much more Choshuv 🙂
