Baruch Dayan Emes. Eli was a complex, immensely erudite personality. May his neshamah find peace - a quality which he did not always find in life. One of life's unforgettable personalities.

I am deeply sorry to hear of Eli's passing. His was a mind of immense capacity and continuing curiosity. He was a gifted and uniquely original teacher and thinker. A conversation with Eli was never less than informative and exciting and often wondrously surprising. He will be remembered with appreciation by so many.

Very sorry to hear of Dr. Pfefferkorn's passing. He was a great teacher and an even better friend to me during my years at CHAT. Dr. Pfefferkorn was incredibly devoted to his students and possessed a great sense of humour. May his memory be a blessing

Dr. Pfefferkorn was an inspiring educator, and intellectual. I am grateful for what he taught me during my years in his classroom at CHAT.

A tragic loss of one the great influences on my adolescent and adult life. I had the pleasure of continuing to know Eli years after graduation. His fire never darkened. I can still remember his turning off the lights in our classroom, lighting two tall candles, while dressed in his Brown robes, announcing in a sober voice: "the Spanish Inquisition will now begin." Eli was in a class-apart among educators I have encountered in all my education. The history he taught barely seemed old, rather it was alive for him, and thus for us. I recall each essay I read in his class. His life experiences were full of pleasure and pain and everyone in his orbit got to know about this. I miss Eli dearly. My condolences to Vered.

I remember Dr Pfefferkorn fondly. He was one teacher that left an inedible mark - in character. He was warm, funny, and so witty. Til this day I hear his voice when I remember certain jokes. My deepest sympathies to his family, friends, and fellow students. Adena Scheer Class ‘99

May Professor Pfefferkorn rest in peace. I learned so much from him in a Holocaust literature course at Tel Aviv University in 1978. May his memory be a blessing.
