  1. One of the many things I regret about my days at RIETS, was not getting to know Rav Charlop. Tragic, really.

  2. Dude, not to rub it in, but the relationship that I developed with Rabbi Charlop is a real highlight of my time in RIETS. He is literally a maayan hamisgaber, of Torah, and Maasim of Gedolei Yisrael. Just a remarkable personality.

  3. Completely agree. The Mei Marom Chaburah was the highlight of my time in RIETS.

  4. yck,

    It doesn’t get any better than the Mei Marom chaburas…

  5. MiMedinat HaYam

    remember that big ledger book he was always writing in, regarding whatever you were in his office for?
