Rav Moshe Shapira zt”l was a giant in Torah and machshavah. He gave thirty to forty shiurim every week, elevating his listeners by revealing the beauty, profundity, and majesty of Torah. He traveled the world over, building communities and teaching countless talmidim. His vast knowledge and ability to penetrate depths in all spheres of Torah was unparalleled in our generation. At the same time, he had extreme love and patience for every Jew, with a singular place in his heart for struggling teens and special needs children. He was a pioneer in the kiruv movement. His greatness was as blinding as the sun.
