R’ Noson Tzvi Finkel zt”l

On one occasion when Rabbi Noson Tzvi Finkel was leading the congregation in prayer, he kept stumbling on the pronunciation of the words.  Those present were amazed, since he always pronounced each word precisely.  The congregants soon understood the reason for the Rabbi’s uncharacteristic difficulty.  There was a mourner in the synagogue who had difficulty reading Hebrew, and when he read from the prayer book, some people laughed or smiled.  In order to lessen the mourner’s embarrassment, Rabbi Finkel acted as if he could not read any better. ~ R’ Zelig Pliskin
