Reb Hershel Eichler, z"l

I was זוכה to get a Psak from him in the old Flatbush Eichler's. I was pestering the poor man, asking him for prices on half the seforim in the store.

Hershel was a Mechanech for many years in the ערי השדה before starting the seforim business. A sharp Jerusalemite who became a successful businessman.

He passed away last night.

יהי זכרו ברוך



he once told my father how he remembered Rav MM Kasher and Rav Zevin walking the streets of Jerusalem.
