I must mention the loss of one of our authors — Rabbi Chaim Flom. Rabbi Flom was a beloved teacher to everyone he taught. In order to fully appreciate who he was, here are a few quotes from some of his students:
“Right now, I’m still shaken. Rabbi Flom was a giant in Torah, a shining example of kindness, humanity, and love. I consider it to be an absolute honour to have known him.” “Rabbi Flom was my night seder rebbe… he was an absolute gem of a man. Incredibly kind and giving. One time he picked me up from the dorms late and night and brought me back to his home to sleep, as I was not feeling well.” “Rabbi Flom was more than just a rebbe. He was a friend, a father figure and someone whom I will never, ever forget. His death is a massive loss for the whole world.”
We all wish his family consolation from their, and our, great loss.
