  1. Boruch dayan emes. Not sure if its the same school but
    one of my old ex boyfriends went to the queens chofetz chaim at one point. I think some core principals of traditional Judaism stayed with him cuz of that experience.Like he always put on tefillin. I never understood why and often argued for the nothing side of all or nothing until I understood. I then always equated the queens chofetz chaim with that powerful sense of instilling tradition in that way.

  2. I have six brothers- all of whom have attended Yeshivas Chofetz Chaim. The impact this great tzadik Rav Alter Chanoch Henoch Leibowitz zt”l had on MY life is enormous. I owe him a debt of Hakaras Hatov.

  3. In various places and settings, we’ve known rabbis who were talmidim of HaRav Leibowitz ZT”L. All have been exceptional people well grounded in Torah, a testimony to his influence.
