Condolence: It is only now that I learned of Sol's passing. I have not seen him since leaving New York 11 years ago, but I have thought of him often. He was my rabbi, my colleague and my friend. In my darkest hour of need he was there for me and I shall be eternally grateful for his genuine kindness and caring.
