Rav Shlomo Elyashiv zt’’l, Son of Rav Yosef Sholom Elyashiv zt’’l


It is with great regret that Matzav.com announces the passing of Rav Shlomo Elyashiv zt’’l, the eldest son of Rav Yosef Shalom Elyashiv zt”l, at the age of 87.

Rav Shlomo was a tremendous talmud chochom who spent his years learning at Kollel Avrechim while refusing to accept any offers to hold a position.

A few years ago, Rav  Shlomo collapsed and since then was paralyzed. He resided during that time at the Herzog House in Yerushalayim. His wife, Rebbetzin Fruma, passed away three years ago.

Rav Shlomo is survived by sons and sons-in-law. His grandson, R’ Shmuel Elyashiv, serves as a member of the Modi’in Illit city council.

The levaya took place on Motzoei Shabbos at the Shamgar Chapel in Yerushalayim.

Yehi zichro boruch.

  1. I assume this story was posted from Eretz Yisroel after Shabbos there, when it was still Shabbos in the USA. You might want to attach a note to that effect to such posts.

  2. Mr. Suggestion:

    this article was posted 6:32 pm today.

    6:32 pm was 60 minutes after shekia today –
    thus, it was motzei shabos already…
    according to some shitos..

    . and those who hold 45 minutes after shkia is tzeis ha kochovim, 6:32 pm was 7 minutes after tzeis ha kochovim…
    it was motzei shabos already.

    . and those who hod 72 minutes after shkia is motzei shabos,
    vos tit eir ofen tomana internet bechlal???????????
    what in the world are you doing on the tomenah internet, anyway???????? !!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ZIL GEMOR !!!!!!!!!!!!

    A gut gebenched voch to all shitos !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. To commentators 2 and 3 your both wrong! I dunno where your getting your times from but in NY shkiya was about 6:32 not 60 mins after and Israel is 7 hours ahead, not 5. Get your zmanim facts straight ppl!
    P.s. Daughter’s don’t count?! “Survived by son’s and sons in law?”…

  4. 6:31 was Shkia ystrdy in Lkwd & around there in Bklyn so it’s impossible that this article was written @ Shkia it’s most probably a mistake on the time of the article, they would have had 2 wait till 7:31 if they hold 60 mins @ 2 # 6 @What riveting conversation, yes this has 2 do with Chilul Shabbos so no it’s not just get a life this has 2 do with is this website being Mechalel Shabbos or not
