Article on R' Neuberger ZT"L

Owings Mills Times :

Almost 2,000 people packed into Sol Levinson and Bros. funeral home in Pikesville Oct. 23 to say goodbye to Rabbi Herman Neuberger of Ner Israel Rabbinical College...
"From my first meeting with Rabbi Neuberger more than a decade ago to my last one only a few weeks ago," said Gov. Robert Ehrlich, "I found him to be a very special person who not only cared deeply about the school he helped lead for so many years but also about the most vulnerable citizens in our community."
"I will always value our conversations and friendship," Ehrlich said....

Sen. Barbara Mikulski, who did not attend the funeral, said she first met the rabbi when she represented Maryland's 3rd District in Congress. "He was a man of great wisdom, but also of great kindness and humor."
Mikulski said she looked at Neuberger as a "trusted adviser" who helped her with issues as far ranging as foreign policy issues involving Israel and care for the elderly.
"I feel I have lost a friend," Mikulski added....


"He was a good friend, and while he came to visit me several times in my house, I went a couple of times to visit him at Ner Israel and we had just a marvelous working relationship," Archbishop William Cardinal Keeler tells WJZ's Richard Sher. "I enjoyed the kosher meals there."

Sol Levinson and Bros. funeral home?? I guess it would be too hard for the reporter to actually show up for the thing he's reporting about, even though Gov. Ehrlich and Mayor O'Malley found the funeral (at Ner Israel) all right.

Boruch Dayan Emes.
Rabbi Neuberger was one of the top classic shtadlonim in America and the world, involved in the major issues facing Jews everywhere, from saving Jews from the Holocaust and onwards, including the Russian Jews, Iranians (helped revitalize their educational system before the Shah was overthrown), advised and helped many Yeshivas, counciled many individuals on all kinds of issues.
