Six years ago, on the second day of Chol Hamoed Sukkos Rav Ahron Soloveichik was nifter. I was never a studen of his, but was influenced by several of his talmidim in very informal settings throughout my Torah observant life. I did have an opporutunity to hear him speak when I was a freshman at YU in the fall of 1989.
I admit, sadly, I do not really recall the content of the shiur. I was fresh out of public school, and had hear the name Soloveichik (usually refering to Rav Ahron’s brother, Rav Soloveitchik) before and figured that this would be an opportunity not to miss.
It was a week before Rosh Hashana and Rav Ahron was delivering a shiur on Hilchos Teshuva.
