Congratulations Mr. Landberg

I was in his high school class in the years 1975-77. I wish I would remember everything else that I learned, as good as the Shakespare poems that he knocked into our heads.
Seeing all my high school teachers sure brings back memories.

Shakespare (however you spell him) must be real tumah, because the shakespare plays I learned in Bais Rivkah high school at the same time as you did, I can rattle them off by heart, literally, but Haazinu, I remember the first 3 words. Sad!!! Metamtem hamoach vehalev!!!

I guarantee he is not in the yeshiva for the pay. What an unbeleivable story with him when his son was born and the docs said he would be blind. Rabbi Tennenbaum ZT”L was able to get a bracha from the rebbe that is Mr Lamberg would put on teffilin, his son would have no problem with his sight. And until this day he puts on those teffilin!

I cannot believe it. Fifty years. A YOVEL!

Landberg is the fellow who told my mother that if I were hanging precariously from a thirtieth floor window and he stretched out a helping hand to save me, I would refuse it!

May he live a long and healtyh life. God bless him.

Yes, while math and computer science as well as language skills are necessary, the so called classics are worthless knowledge. Shakespeare contains much philosophy that is counter to Torah and especially to Chassidus.

I was in his 8th grade english class in 1973 when the incident with his newborn son occurred. I was witness to a miracle. The doctors had already “written him off”
We all chipped in and bought Mr. Landberg the tefillin as a present after the Rebbe made him that promise.
It was a moment I will never forget.

He taught for a while on Eastern Parkway,
Is he still running? His legs look pretty strong from the picture? He used to jog, anyone remember that? He was also proud of his Lexus when we first got it back then, he says it started smooth no matter how cold it was…

Mr. Landberg…..WOW – What a Blast from the Past !!!
He was just the coolest teacher in the entire school.
I can still hear him using his then-customary term of endearment towards his students, “My Boys”.
I also remember this spirit with which he accepted his monthly paycheck when it was delivered to him during class..”Here comes another Bounce-a Roo” !!!
What special memories of a truly unique individual and a beloved educator. I’m sure Mr. Landberg is part of the reason that I’ve been teaching for over 36 years.

Grad of 8th grade in 1969. Thanks to Irv Goller for e-mail. Known then as Willie Fried today known as Rabbi Shlomo Fried. Mr. Landberg honored me as a young man that had perfect attendance my entire eight years in Elementary. At my final year in High School I would have had 12 years of perfect attendance. So a week before graduation I intentionaly skipped a day of school; not to be embarrassed again for perfect attendance. Thanks for enlighting us about baseball. In our 8th grade I formed a baseball team and I was captain and pitcher of the… Read more »

Mr. Landberg It was my great honor and pleasure to be part of the well-deserved recognition you received last Saturday evening. Despite your obvious humility, I hope that you’re aware of how many generations of students you’ve influenced in a positive way. After all these years, your integrity, your talent and your enthusiasm for learning still stand out prominently in my early memories. ***************************************************** A special Yaasher Koach to Rabbi Yitzchok Hecht, who went above and beyond the call of duty to make the evening a truly fitting tribute to a towering figure in the history of the Lubavitcher Yeshiva.
