A Belated goodbye
I missed the tragic news while away and didn't hear until last night. Reb Sholom Morozov passed away on Rosh Chodesh Tammuz at the age of 85.
It's tough to see the old generation go, especially when it's of the caliber of RSM, a Gaon of wordly proportions, both in Nigleh, Nistar, and Chassidus. Everything you asked him was like he had just learned it and was reading it out of the sefer. It would be quite easy to say that a Gaon of his caliber far outshines any of the so-called "Gedolim", simply because his knowledge stretches much further, not being limited to Shas and Poskim.
Reb Sholom was one of the Gedeylei HaDeyr.
