Many mispallelim, including several gedolei Yisrael, frequented Beth Tefillah due to their serious atmosphere they had for davening and kedushas bais haknesses, which was imbued by Rav Breslauer from the start.

In addition to his rabbanus, Rav Breslauer was a rebbi in Yeshivah of Spring Valley, educating generations of talmidim with his characteristic ehrlichkeit and warmth.
