This article was inspired by and is dedicated in memory of Rabbi Dr. O. Asher Reichel, zal, who passed away just a few months ago at the age of 90 with the basic benefits described in this blessing for most of his long, fulfilling, and uplifting life.

Rabbi Aaron I. Reichel, Esq., is the author of The Maverick Rabbi, about Rabbi Herbert S. Goldstein, a pioneering American rabbi, who had a great-grandfather, in turn, who was reported to have died at the age of 106, and only as the result of falling off a horse!

Rabbi Reichel is available to speak at book launches and other programs about this book, and/or as a scholar-in-residence to discuss this book and up to three other books which he was involved in writing or editing and/or supplementing. All of the books show how the protagonists enhanced the practice of traditional Judaism in modern times, with creativity and adherence to Jewish law. Two of the books were published in 2017, and two of them focus on people who influenced Rabbi Cohen in various ways, Harry Fischel and Rabbi Herbert S. Goldstein.
