Heartbreaking even at such an old age a person who did so much for yiddishkeit it's really hard to hear he's gone.

Oy!!!!! Baruch Dayan Emes. Rabbi Sholom Dov Ber has done so much to save yidden in EYl. We have lost a big Tzaddik and Oheiv yisroel. May he plead on our behalf in Shomayim to end this Galus and bring Moshiach Now.

Wow! What a righteous soul! And what amazing (and dangerous) work he did for the Nation of Israel, and for it's precious women!

How sad! I didn't even *know* there was a phenomenon of Jewish women marrying Arab men & then getting trapped in their villages?! Chasveshalom, where in the world is THAT happening?!

Nevertheless... when I read stories like this, I am always amazed & inspired!

The older generation & their good deeds & righteous works are a HUGE part of what inspires my husband & I, gentiles, to cleave to the Nation of Israel & it's Torah! Praise HaShem for sending such souls into the world to teach!

We own a copy of the Aggadah, and the stories in there of the great sages are more amazing than anything I've read in a secular book or have seen in movies! (lol) It's amazing what people who are close to HaShem can accomplish in this world!

G-d bless the Rabbi. I'm certain his family & his community will miss him greatly!

Your post and the feelings that you express in there are really heartwarming. A tiny correction, though, is in order. When you say (post) "Aggadah" you probably meant "Haggadah". Where the former means "Legend", the latter means "Sayer", --a collection of prayers and praise to Hashem. On second thought. "Aggadah" isn't wrong, either. There are a lot of descriptive stories of the Rabbis of that era in that book.
