Thousands have gathered for the Levaya of the Sadigur Rebbe, HaRav Avrohom Yaakov Friedman ZATZAL, who was Niftar early this morning at the age of 84.
The Rebbe was a member of the Moetzes Gedolei HaTorah of Agudas Yisroel in Eretz Yisroel.
The Rebbe was rushed to Maanei Hayeshua Hospital in Bnei Brak after suffering a cardiac arrest, but was Niftar shortly after.
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.
The Kevura will take place in the Nachlas Yitzchok Cemetery located in Givatayim, in the Chelkas Admorei Bais Ruzhun.
