The late Rabbi Shmuel was born in Galicia, and after immigrating to Eretz Yisrael, he served for many years as a Dredky teacher in Talmud Torah in Bnei Brak and was privileged to educate many children who grew up on his knees.
In Bnei Brak, the deceased was one of the most important Hasidim and worshipers at the Beit Midrash in Alza in the city, where a regular Torah lesson was also given to the worshipers daily.
One of the followers of Belza tells Kikar Hashabat that the deceased was also a benefactor from his youth onwards who cared and raised money for the benefit of hard-working and incapacitated families, all in secret and without people knowing about his actions, a man versed in Torah and Halacha,
The late Rabbi Shmuel has recently contracted the corona virus, and in recent days doctors have been fighting for his life, but in recent hours he has returned his soul to its creator to the chagrin of the family members.
The deceased left behind his family, children and sons-in-law who walk the path of Torah and Hasidism, and his funeral is expected to take place tonight in the city of Bnei Brak, through the Great Beit Midrash in Kiryat Belza in Jerusalem, to Mount of Beatitudes, where Whitman is part of the Belza followers.
May his soul be bundled in the bundle of life.
