A Gaon In Middos


Tales of the Gaonim-logo

Reb Yisrael replied: “Don’t compare both cases. To make a hesped, a eulogy for an ignorant and mean person is a simple matter. I could do it even if I am sick for no one cares what I say. But to make a hesped for such a great person, whose loss to this world is irreplaceable, is an impossible thing to do. Words can never express his greatness and I became sick at the very thought of it. Even when I am in the best of health I can find no words to describe the greatness of the Gaon Reb Yosef Ber Soleveitchik.”

Rabbi Sholom Klass
