In my personal memory, if I had to describe Rav Walkin in one word, I would have to say that above all he encompass- es the meaning of Ahavat Chinam.
No matter who you were, what you looked like or where you were from Rav Walkin would give off an impression that it was you who were gracing his presence, not the oth- er way around. He had the incredible power to make you feel as if you are royalty.
Rav Ahron Walkin truly and utterly believed that every Jew he encountered was in fact royalty. I will never forget Rav Walkin or the confidence, happiness and Torah that he freely gave out to me and all of Klal Yisroel.
