Bobby Vogel was my mentor and teacher. I used to drive across London every week to come to his women’s shiur in Golders Green. As well as words of Torah that came from years of learning and life experience, I learned so muchfrom his kindness and dignity. This story is very much in the way he cared for others in need of practical help. The broken diamonds will be with him forever, as are my memories of him.
