He was a chosid and a lamdan and always full of life. May his family know only Simchas.
R’ Yitzchok was a learned, kind soul who was generous in so many ways, but especially with his conversations in Yiddish, for which he never lowered the bar. He wanted you to aspire to his level. I loved him. May his neshama have an immense aliyah, and may his family be comforted.
