Josh Robinson

May Moishe's memory be a blessing; my thoughts are with you.

Ingwer Schwensen

Moishe's works have accompanied me my whole adult life. I owe his keen insights, and unrelenting critical thought very much. He was truly a teacher the whole world over. What a wise and humane man we've lost!

William Marotti

Moishe was a model of careful scholarship, clarity, and mentorship, coupled with patience and intellectual generosity. Iâ??ll miss that laugh, too. My love to everyone whoâ??s missing him now.

Simon Niklasson

An important and inspiring thinker whos work will only grow more important for our understanding of the current state of things.
My condolences.

Barry Greenstone

Moishe's father and my father were 1st cousins, making Moishe a second cousin. He came to the Yeshiva in Skokie in 1858/9. He was always a good looking, fine and intelligent person. I only saw him a few times after I was married, and most recently with Benjamin in Israel, where I live. May his memory be blessed.
