As a first year maggid shiur, there is very little Rav Kaplan won’t do for his talmidim. His seemingly endless patience is instrumental in helping bochurim with limited gemara experience realize the potential they have for learning. Bochurim advance and in many cases surprise themselves by the huge strides they make in his shiur. His ability to simplify complicated concepts gives his talmidim the awareness that mastery of learning is within their reach. Rav Kaplan’s humility and unassuming nature endear him to all, and his talmidim see him as a role model they’d like to emulate.
