Sadigura Rebbe Niftar at 84

The Sadigura Rebbe, Harav Avrohom Yaakov Friedman Zatzal, was Niftar early this morning at the age of 84. The Rebbe, a member of the Moetzes Gedolei HaTorah of Agudas Yisroel in Eretz Yisroel, was rushed into emergency surgey early this morning, but was Niftar shortly afterwards. 

YWN reports: The Rebbe was born in Vienna to the previous Sadigur Rebbe, HaRav Mordechai Sholom Yosef, and moved to Eretz Yisroel just before WWII. Not long after, the family relocated to Crown Heights, where the Rebbe established his Chassidus once again. After the passing of his father, the Rebbe (who had remained in New York as Rov of the Shul), moved back to Eretz Yisroel, to assist in building the Sadigur Mosdos, and replaced his father upon his passing. A few years after becoming Rebbe, he was added to the Moetzes Gedolei HaTorah.

There are Sadigur Batei Midrashim, Yeshivos, Kollelim, and Talmid Torah’s in Bnei Brak, Tel Aviv, Mod’iin Illit, Beitar, Yerushalayim, Ashdod, London, New York, and other locations.

Thousands are currently gathered at the Levaya in Bnei Brak. The Kevura will take place in the Nachlas Yitzchok Cemetery located in Givatayim, in the Chelkas Admorei Bais Ruzhun.

  1. it saddens me every time i read that another Gadol Hador has left this world & he is no longer here to guide us anymore. it brings tears to me when i know it could’ve been avoided.
    the last 6 gedolim-of 110 over just 20 months R”L-niftar recently were:

    Rav Zev Hakohen Hoberman zt”l-Rosh Mesivta Philadelphia- October 3, 2012 SUKKOS-82

    Rav Avrohom Genechovsky zt”l-Rosh Yeshivas Tchebin in yerushalyim,-October 11, 2012-76

    Rabbi Kalman Winter zt”l, -rov in Silver Spring, Maryland. -October 24 2012-67

    Rav Amram Zaks zt”l-rosh yeshiva of the Salbodka Yeshiva in Bnei Brak.-December 4 2012-86.

    Rav Mendel Weinbach zt”l,-R”Y of Yeshiva Ohr Somayach in Yerushalayim.- December 11 2012-81

    LOOK AT THEIR AGES… younger & younger. are these ages regular ages to be niftar?

    the mageifa will only continue & cannot be stopped unless we all confess to Hashem & admit to Hashem that its time for us to do teshuva & return to Hashem so Mashiach can come already

    MAY WE NOT HEAR ANOTHER TZADDIK LEAVE US, in todays generation we really need their daas torah
