Ftfy. And I daresay he has some good stories about him.

I served three years there. Learned and was tested on megilla, bava Kama and pesachim. I also convinced SMR that he should pay me and another bochur to bind all the seforim, which, Iím told, are still in use.

Postville was epic and completely nuts, not unlike itís most famous citizen.

There was an old Jewish guy, lived about 15 minutes away, who we would go put tfillin on. One day, he died. They needed shomrim to get him to his burial plot in Detroit, about 16 hours away. So myself and my cousin rode in the funeral home van with a body bag between our seats. Instead of going back with the funeral home, I called SMR on his cell, which he answered, and asked him to fly us back, which he did :). He apparently had covered the entirety of the funeral costs, which I did not know.

Will need to go back there one day.

Enjoy your time with SMR, heís the best!

It was a play on Dan and Benny looking similar.

One of us is missing something here...


He said Dan, but actually meant Benny, because there is a running joke that they are the same person. Based only on this thread, I'll assume Dan was not in Postville, but Benny was.

Probably me, I canít follow forums to save my life.

Your assumption is precisely correct. But donít make assumptions as you can make an ass out of you and umption.

This is a DansDeals cliche. We cannot allow more than 2 hours go by without a Dan=Benny reference.

Yes, for Zal and Smicha in YOEC.
Zal was before digital cameras and by the time smicha rolled around he was always away on tour...

I will be driving Rí Sholom Mordechai Rubashkin in about an hour. Is there anything I should ask/tell him about?
He is one treasure trove of Emunah and Bitachon. Amazing.

What would he do differently if he had a chance to do it all over?

I imagine he would (and will) avoid any behavior that could possibly be even remotely suspected of appearing criminal like the plague.

It's possible that he may feel that answering such a question to begin with would be contrary to Emunah and Bitachon....

What could've happened.....
