It is with great sadness that Matzav.com reports the passing of Rav Reuven Bezalel Berger z”l, one of the heads of Ichud Mosdos Gur. He was 67 years old.

Rav Berger was born on 3 Sivan תש”ט  to his father, Rav Chaim Alter Berger, who survived the tribulations of the Holocaust. Rav Berger was a mispallel at the Gerer Shul on Rechov Chiddushei Harim in Bnei Brak and maintained a special kesher with the admorim of Ger.

Rav Berger’s carried on his father’s gemach, which helped thousands of families in the early years of Bnei Brak. He also founded and managed an institution for children with special needs in Petach Tikva.

In the last decade, he devoted his life to the institutions of Ger.

Rav Berger was a rare combination of talmid chochom, askan, and exalted oveid Hashem.

The levaya started today at 12:30 p.m. at his home of Rechov Nechemiah in Bnei Brak, followed by kevurah at the Ponovezher bais hachaim in Bnei Brak.

Yehi zichro boruch.
