Mourners are paying tribute to a teacher par excellence after the April 6 passing of Rabbi Nachum Cooper from complications due to COVID-19.

For many years, after a full day of work, Cooper would deliver a popular nightly Talmud lecture.

He was described by Rabbi Yisroel Reisman as “one of the truly righteous people I have been privileged to know in my life ... a genuine servant of G‑d in everything that he did.”

Cooper is survived by his wife and their six children.
