Baruch Dayan Ha’emes: Petirah of Hagaon Rav Zundal Kroizer Zatzal

candleBARUCH DAYAN HA’EMES: Klal Yisroel lost a Gadol this morning, with the Petirah of Hagaon HaRav Zundal Kroizer Zatzal, one of the Ziknei Yerushalayim, and one of the biggest Gedolim and Tzadikim in the world today. He was 90 years old.

Rav Kroizer had remained unknown to most people, as he sat and learned privately. Very rarely did he allow people into his home to give them Brachos or advice. He had been hospitalized at Sharei Tzedek Hospital for the past week.

The Levaya will be held today (Thursday) at 4:00PM, from the home of his son on Rechov Rashi in Yerushalayim.

  1. He did not only learn privately. He learned and answered questions in yeshivas tchebin for many many years. And r zundels house was open for anyone who sought out his brachos and advice. R zundel used to make a kiddush in his home after vasikin too. I’m surprised that you would put up a bio without doing even the slightest amount of research

  2. He was for the most part a hidden Tzaddik, he only became known recently. Yishai, you must be from the lucky few that has known about Reb Zundel, all along. I am jealous of the zchus you had!

  3. I don’t know what you mean when you wrote “Rav Kroizer had remained unknown to most people”..I learned in Eretz yisroel over twenty years ago and then already he and his children were already well known in amongst the Brisker and Yerushalmi oilam..Just recently the Yated had a major article about him.I myself was personally invited to his Pesach seder by his son..Reb Yossel a well known talmid of Reb Berel Soloveichik..

    • to #5 you missed my point…I never said I was the majority…My point is that to yeshivaleit in E.Y then and now….he was very well known…

  4. Why don’t we all stop bickering and nit picking every word that someone posted. We lost one of the gedolim on who’s shoulders the world was resting. Let us work on ourselves to begin filling up the void

  5. On a trip to Eretz Yisroel last winter, headed right for his house where I was zoche to speak in learning with him. A terrible loss for Klal Yisroel.

  6. To #3 I never said he wasn’t a hidden tzaddik. Rather I stated that it is wrong to say he only learned privately, and that his didn’t allow people into his home. That is a lie, his door was always open.

  7. His door was opened for everyone. All he did was learn the whole day and night. There was nothing he loved more. Terrible loss. I’m crying
    The whole day now.
