YWN regrets to inform you of the Petira of HaRav Yitzchok Kleiman ZATZAL, the Rosh Kollel of Kollel Iyun Hatalmud of Lakewood, NJ.
Rav Kleiman underwent serious brain surgery two weeks ago at Hackensack University Medical Center, and had been in a medically-induced coma until his Petira just a few minutes ago.
Rav Kleiman was formerly the Rosh Yeshiva of the Yeshiva of St. Louis, and later opened Kollel Iyun Hatalmud in Lakewood. As a Bochur he studied in the Mirrer Yeshiva in Flatbush under Maran Hagon Rav Shmuel Berenbaum ZATZAL, and was considered one of his prized Talmidim. His friends from his youth always talk about his tremendous Hasmada, as he was seen in the Bais Medrash until well past midnight – every single night.
The Levaya will take place Thursday at 1:50PM in BMG, and will then proceed to Kollel Iyun Hatalmud at 124 11th Street. The kevura will be in the Lakewood Cemetery..
Boruch Dayan Emmes…
