    Since we live in Philadelphia, my husband and I had the privilege of knowing Rabbi Powers, and having him teach our two sons who attended local yeshiva high schools.  He was certainly one of a kind, and we will miss him.

    I still remember the Sheva Brachos speech he gave for my cousin Rabbi Wachsman in Chofetz Chaim. I was less than ten years old, but it made such an impact that over forty years later, I still remember.

    Anyone who saw Rabbi Powers at Mussar Seder will never forget it!  He sat in front of a Mesilas Yesharim with an intensity I cannot even imagine myself possessing at  my best Neila Tefilla  on Yom Kippur. After each sentence he diligently and painstakingly wrote in a personal note book.

    I have no idea what he wrote but I do know I saw the Mesilas Yesharim in him every second of his life.


    Yehei Zichro Baruch,

    So sorry for the loss of your friend.  I never heard of Rabbi Powers, but it sounds like he must have been a very pleasant person to be around.  One lesson that I can take from this, is the importance of learning new things, which really can only take place with an open mind.  Easier said than done, though, because the older I get, the more cynical I find myself becoming, regarding human nature.

    Right on the mark.
