However, Rabbi Sacks was a teacher and mentor of mine – and I must make the attempt to honor him in appreciation of what I learned from him.[2]

Like many American Jews, I first encountered Rabbi Sacks through his writings.

After graduating law school, I delayed beginning work at a New York City law firm to return to Yeshiva University and study Torah full-time, for the first half of the year at the Gruss Kollel in Jerusalem and the second half at YU’s main campus in Washington Heights.
