This week we are marking the fifth Yahrtzeit of my father-in-law, Rabbi Dr. Azriel Rosenfeld. He was a leading researcher in the field of computer vision, and was also a scholar of Torah with keen insight. He graced Torah.org with two classes in Jewish Law, one each at the basic and advanced levels.
Given his incredible memory, he was also a tremendous resource for our “Ask the Rabbi” service — able to quickly refer to multiple texts to find quotations and answers. After his passing, we launched JewishAnswers.org in order to permit a team of Rabbis and scholars, today numbering over 50, to share the burden. Today we are able to field dozens of questions every month, while referring people to local resources for further study. May Rabbi Rosenfeld be remembered for a blessing, and may our efforts be a good remembrance for him and his great contributions.
