The Rosh Yeshiva of Zichron Melech in New York was approximately 80 years old, and has thousands of Talmidim in Lakewood, and worldwide.
As earlier reported, his family was called to his bedside late Tuesday evening after his condition became extremely critical.
According to tentative plans, the Levaya will be taking place in New York and then in Lakewood. His Rebbetzin is buried in Lakewood.
Details of the Levaya in Lakewood are not yet available. The Kevurah will take place in Lakewood.
UPDATE: The Levaya in Lakewood will tentatively be taking place at 5:30 PM at BMG.
Due to the anticipated large crowd, officials will be meeting shortly to discuss plans.
