was The dreaded expecTancy oT The ordeal oT The approaching Tesf ThaT
seemed To haunT The boys. They knew ThaT by The Time Dr. Revel con-
cluded wiTh The examinaTion he would have a compleTe picTure oT Their
knowledge OT The Talmud - - - or The lack oT iT. The boys knew ThaT There
was no hiding one's ignorance or lack oT preparaTion in any subTerTuges
And yeT, while The boys Teared him, They neverTheless had a deep
respecT Tor him. In his presence They seemed To be inspired wiTh a
'iYiras l'lakovod", ThaT was a combinaTion oT love, aTTecTion, admiraTion
and awe. When They passed Through The ordeal oT such a "Bchina",
There was rekindled in The boys The desire To sTudy, To overcome whaT-
ever diTTicuITies ThaT may have arisen in Their Talmudic sTudies.
My room was nexT To Dr. Revel's oTTice. I meT him almosT daily
as I was enTering my room and he was leaving Tor The day. lnvariably,
he would grasp my hands and, wiTh his halTing speech, ask me, "T-low
are The boys, Dr. Shapiro? I-low are They?" And when I gave him
a cheerful reply, I could see ThaT iT acTed like a Tonic upon him.
I aTTended a "Chagiga" some Time ago. QuiTe a large congrega-
Tion of sTudenTs, visiTors, and guesTs were presenT. One would Think
ThaT, on such an occasion, he would remain digniTied and alooT. NOT
Dr. Revel. When The boys bursT TorTh inTo Tamiliar Yeshiva songs,
Dr. Revel ioined Them. BuT more Than ThaT. I-le leTT his exaITed dais
and marched Through The aisles swinging his hands in his characTerisTic
Tashion, and leading "his boys" in singing. I was deeply moved by
This specTacIe. Once more Dr. Revel proved To The assembled audience
ThaT To The boys he was noT The ausTere Dr. Revel, The presidenT oT
The Yeshiva. To Them he was more Than "Rosh I-laishiva". I-le was
also Their spiriTual TaTher, Their broTher, a Tellow reveler, a Tellow singer.
I-le was permeaTed wiTh The spiriT OT The occasion and wished To in-
culcaTe The boys wiTh The same spiriT. And The boys seemed To respond.
Their hearTs and souls, and The hearT and soul oT Their leader and Rabbi,
were merged in a real "Oineg-Ruachu.
ln The deaTh oT Dr. Revel, World Jewry IosT a greaT man, a greaT
scholar, and The Yeshiva IosT iTs leader. ln due Time, some oTher greaT
rabbi will Take his place as The head oT This insTiTuTion. BuT iT will be
a long Time, indeed, before The "new propheT of Israel" will be able
To replace The laTe Dr. Bernard Revel in The hearTs and souls oT The
sTudenTs who knew him so well and loved him so dearly.
