Title: There Are No Basketball Courts In Heaven

21 Iyyar 5770 – May 5, 2010
Rabbi Dovid Landesman jokes that one of his former students used to refer to him as General Eclectic because he could never safely predict how he would come down on various issues. Another talmid reminds me that the rabbi was sometimes referred to as the "adderaba" (Aramaic for "on the contrary") because he could usually be counted upon to present a viewpoint that never feared challenging the establishment. The most cogent appreciation, however, is that offered by a ninth grader who, after listening to a talk on parashat hashavua, approached him and said, "Rebbi, I don't like the way you speak!" Somewhat taken aback, Rabbi Landesman asked him to explain his criticism. The student replied, "You always want us to think!"
