The deceased was born in Williamsburg, New York in 1905 to his parents, the late R.

He was asked by his rabbis to go on a mission with his rabbinical wife to teach at the yeshiva of the late Rabbi Yitzchak Kosowski in Johannesburg, South Africa.

The deceased’s mission was limited to a period of about two years, but due to the death of Rosh Yeshiva Rabbi Kosovsky, Rabbi Avraham Chaim was appointed Rosh Yeshiva under him, and since then has continued to spread Torah and Judaism throughout Johannesburg, and even established vibrant institutions, including a small yeshiva, Talmud Torah and a large yeshiva. . 1000 students.

The deceased was privileged to host in his institutions some of the greatest of the generation, including the late Rabbi of Ponoviz, the late Rabbi Yitzchak Kolitz, the late Rabbi Moshe Sternbuch, Rabbi Baruch Mordechai Ezrahi, and Rabbi Asher Weiss, who expressed great appreciation for his activities.

Last night, as mentioned, his heart stopped beating to the chagrin of the many family members and students.

May his soul be bundled in the bundle of life.
