“You know, my son is also my son-in-law,” Rabbi Menachem Aharon haKohen Rodal said to me while he was sitting in a wheelchair when I visited him a few months ago. “How is that?” I asked. “Well,” he explained with a glimmer in his eye, “you know my son in Florida is a lawyer. So he’s both my son and my son-in-law!” And then we discussed Torah, which included talking about animals, a subject near and dear to my heart.

Even with his condition progressing, Rabbi Rodal maintained his trademark wit, humor, and love of Torah and other Jews, while being in complete awe of all of Hashem’s creations.

He was truly a unique person — a man of chesed, with a huge heart which was always on display while he fulfilled the mission of the Rebbe. He will be missed.

Baruch Dayan Emes. May Rabbi Rodal’s neshama have an Aliya.
