The Yeshiva Darchei Torah family in Far Rockaway, NY, has been plunged into mourning with the passing of habochur Yosef Aryeh Leib Rabinowitz z”l, a talmid of the yeshiva. Though Aryeh Leib suffered from a very debilitating disease and was wheelchair-bound, he endeared himself to all his chaveirim at Mesivta Chaim Shlomo. He joined the yeshiva at the beginning of this year and was embraced by the rosh hayeshiva, Rav Yaakov Bender, the hanhalah members and his fellow talmidim. He learned with great geshmak and saw much hatzlachah in the shiur of Rav Menachem Feifer.
“The bochurim loved him and he brought a lot of cheer to the hallways of the mesivta,” a member of the hanhalah told Matzav.com. “He will be sorely missed.”
The levaya took place in Boro Park yesterday morning and the aron was then brought to Mesivta Chaim Shlomo in Far Rockaway.
Kevurah took place in Lakewood, NJ.
