He was one of a kind, with a genuine understanding of Torah, chassidus, philosophy, rabonus and current affairs all combined with a sweetness beyond compare and an ability to dig in his heels when he needed it. Some of this must have been genetic. His father left Telz because he wanted to combine what he had learned there with secular education. For that reason his father went to Switzerland and married there. later he was attracted to Chabad. This son more than any of the others reflected his father's broad roots in different parts of the Torah world. Chaval al de'avdin!
