Rav Nosson Tzvi Finkel, ZT"L

I did not merit to know the Rosh Yeshiva of the Mir, Rav Nosson Tzvi Finkel ZT"L, who passed away early this morning.  Nevertheless, I knew the Yeshiva he headed - "The Mir", as they say - as the premier Yeshiva in Israel.  The majority of the rabbis of the Yeshiva I attended in Israel learned at The Mir.

For some good posts about the life of this former Chicagoan, see:
