OU TORAH And Aaron Was Silent By Rabbi Dr. Tzvi Hersh Weinreb
He was an old man and in many ways came from a very different world than I. And yet, he taught me more than anyone else ever did. One of the things he taught me was that no one suffers as much as a parent who loses a child. He delivered this lesson to me on a wintry day more than fifty years ago. He was my grandfather, my father’s father, and the family had just broken the news to him that his youngest grandchild, my baby cousin, had died. It was a sudden death, totally unexpected, and everyone was distraught. Also Grandpa took the news very hard.
