RAV YITZCHOK SHEINER ZT"L

ברוך דיין האמת אבל כבד בעולם התורה רתמיך תעורר כי לקינו בכפליים
The Torah world plunged into mourning and suffered yet another great loss  with the petirah in Yerushalayim of Hagaon Harav Yitzchak Sheiner, ztl, Rosh Yeshivah of Yeshivas Kamenitz in Yerushalayim at the age of 98, just hours after the petirah of Harav Dovid Soloweitchik, ztl. The rosh yeshiva tested positive gor Corona and just got up from shiva for his sister last week.

BDE! What a whopper of a day. :'(
IIRC, Rav Dovid Soloveitchik and Rav Yitchok Sheiner lived about a block away from each other.
Yes R Yitzchok lived on Tzefania and R Dovid lived on Amos (off Tzefania).
BDE big loss! I thought he will never go.

As per family members it was not COVID-19
Please. Lets not contaminate this thread, especially now. I know for a fact that he was hospitalized with COVID pneumonia (although he was generally unwell lately). Lets move any discussion of this elsewhere.

We got to better ourselves! Really sad to see one after another on a Mtzshbs-sunday morning, great men passing away one after another. Nothing is a coincidence!

   Scary time and crazy world we're living in! Soif Hayamim!

 Baruch Dayen Haa'emes!

 
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.
