  1. Rabbi Marcus was an outrageous talmud chochom. On a completely different level than almost everyone else.
    Humble as a shoemaker.
    What a sad day.

    • Could not have said that any better. As great as he was a Talmud Chochum muflig, he was incredibly humble. A great loss to Klal Yisroel.

      Hashem should comfort his Rebitzen and beautiful family.

  2. Kol Hatorah Kulah with out exaggeration!The niftar was a living Shas!
    Hashem is taking the best amomg us.Oy Vey, when is this going to end!
    His chashvah family should have a nechamah.

  3. Rav Marcus was a great man, an ilui atzum who was fluent in Bavli and Yerushalmi and more. He was one of the 4 most prominent editors of the Artscroll Hebrew and English Shas, along with Rav Ephraim Zuravin, Rav Chaim Malinowitz and R’ Yisrael Simchan Schor. May the family have a nechamah.

  4. Does anybody know the Rav’s full Hebrew name? I would like to dedicate something l’zecher nishmaso. I believe his name was Mordechai Tzvi Halevi, but I don’t know his father’s name. It’s not included on the Misaskim listing like other niftarim, and I don’t want to bother the family today.
