Sad Tidings: Moreinu Harav Hagaon Nissim Karelitz Zatzal

The Light was Extinguished

The entire House of Israel mourns for the great leader of our generation, the outstanding Posek, of worldwide fame, who encouraged, blessed and directed the activities of Vaad Harabbanim:

Moreinu Posek Hador Harav Hagaon Nissim Karelitz Zatzal

He served on the directory board of Vaad Harabbanim l’Inyanei Tzedakah b’Eretz Hakodesh for over twenty-five years, with great dedication.

The tzedakah of Vaad Harabbanim was very close to his heart, and he would always rule to all who asked him that they should properly fulfill their tzedakah obligations by donating to Vaad Harabbanim. He issued this ruling many times in writing as well. Rav Nissim always held deep gratitude to Vaad Harabbanim’s donors and prayed fervently for their success and welfare.

His face shone when he held meetings of the Gedolei Hador for the sake of Vaad Harabbanim, publicly showing how much he cared about Vaad Harabbanim.

He will surely continue to be a Meilitz Yosher in Gan Eden for all who go in his ways and fulfill his rulings.
