We walked in the light of his teachings and instructions, he taught us wisdom and knowledge, a rabbi and guide, he lived 45 years in our community. May the merits of his teachings and prayers protect us. Woe to us who remain like a flock without a shepherd. On Pesach evening, we made a holy sacrifice".
