What his students say

“We feel honored that we had the opportunity to have you as a teacher. Your classes are straight forward and practical, yet you still show us the depth and complexity of the Torah. You never shied away from discussing controversial topics, and you used your incredible wealth of knowledge and experience to lead us in the right direction during our discussions.”
