Harav Frankel’s Kaddish

Your editorial regarding the Kaddish of Harav Frankel, zecher tzaddik livrachah, shook me.

It brought back old memories of when I was a young man and came to visit my uncle in Tel Aviv on Simchas Torah.

We walked in the southern part of the city, where Harav Frankel served as a Rav.

To describe him as a Rav in a neighborhood like Tel Aviv won’t do him any justice.

The man was like a king dancing with the Torah. The admiration he had from all walks of life, the way he dealt with the Jews around him — Ashkenazim and Sephardim, traditional and frum, Chassidic or secular — was not to be described.

His wisdom and his huge heart combined with the fact that he was a tremendous talmid chacham made him the towering figure we admired.

Harav Frankel will never be forgotten.

How typical of him to go to Poland to find the remains and bring them to kever Yisrael.

Yehi zichro baruch.
