Reb Volf and Art

Reb Volf was a baal chush in general and noticeably in art.

  • Anyone who studied in Montreal will remember him coming into yeshiva the night before the Lag b'omer parades to help prepare banners for the children to hold. He would draw beautiful letters in freehand and it was the only time you would see him in yeshiva without all his levushim.
  • One of his einiklach showed me some pictures he drew for them when they were kids, he seemed to like drawing pictures that included fish.
  • He was once showing me some seforim in his house and he had drawn a really beautiful design in the inside cover that included his name.
  • In a letter he once wrote to me he wrote a very elaborate b'h, not dissimilar to the way the Rebbe Rashab would write it.
If you have any other memories relating to Reb Volf and art please share in the comments.
