He was at once intellectual and blazingly fervent, charismatic and unassuming, demanding and tolerant, serious and funny. He was unconventional and, while always appropriate ... unpredictable. Heir to his grandfather s Kelm mussar and a product of a Brisker education, he also internalized the light and depth of chassidus, fusing many holy paths within his vast heart.

He challenged them to grow and made their spirits soar, but most important of all ... he gave them dreams.
