Unfortunately, yesterday I attended the l’vayah of a Gadol, HaRav Yechiel Yitzchak Perr zt”l, Rosh Yeshivah of the Yeshiva of Far Rockaway. Through the various hespeidim, there emerged a picture of a brilliant “m’chadeish” of Torah, who gave up what could have been a lifetime of producing brilliant s’farim of original and creative Torah thoughts, in order to produce thousands of talmidim instead.
