Rabbi Eliezer Shach, Religious Giant, Dies

"We won't be seeing his likes again" is the kind of elegaic hyperbole one so often hears at funerals and reads in obituaries. Rarely is it a literal truth. In the case of Rabbi Eliezer Menachem Shach, who died early last Friday and was buried the same day in Bnei Brak -- his age estimated at anywhere from 103 to 108 -- the statement is indeed fact.
