Guest BloggerRabbi Daniel YolkutFor those who has not heard, Dr Louis Feldman, professor of classics at Yeshiva College for half a century, was niftar over the weekend.
Dr Feldman was a scholar, a mentch, an ענו and a ירא שמים, and while I was zoche to study with him in the 90s, I felt a connection to his many distinguished students starting in the 50s. The five courses I took with him were among the finest educational experiences of my life.

Comment from RRW
Dr. Feldman was from the South End of Hartford and was a "lantzman" in a sense to me
He was a regular speaker at the Men's Club Breakfasts in my former Congregation Ohav Sholaum in Upper Manhattan. He was a brilliant speaker on Classics, Jospehus, and History. He will be missed.
