Rav Binyamin Beinush Finkel (1913-1990) was one of the most colorful Roshei Yeshiva in recent times. A great talmid chacham who did everything to hide his greatness, he remains something of a mystery to even those who were close with him. At the same time, he was a lively and funny personality, and in many ways the ultimate people's person. Hiding himself and his deeds to an extreme, he also displayed a warmth and understanding for the common and simple folk whom he encountered. With so many facets to his personality, these anecdotes can perhaps paint a partial picture of this legendary and beloved Rosh Yeshiva, presented here in honor of his 30th yahrtzeit.
