VIDEO & PHOTOS: Hespedim for HaRav Mendel Weinbach ZT”L



Marking the end of the shiva of HaRav Mendel Weinbach ZT”L, the Rosh Yeshiva of Ohr Somayach, hespedim were delivered at Ohr Somayach by HaRav Nota Schiller, HaRav Zev Leff, HaRav Yonasan Shmuel Wiener, HaRav Avraham Reisman, and HaRav Avi Weinbach.

Rav Mendel Weinbach was one of the fathers of the modern-day baal teshuva movement in his capacity as co-founder and Rosh Yeahiva of Ohr Somayach Institutions, a Jerusalem-based educational network for young, Jewish men. Since the yeshiva’s founding in 1970, Rabbi Weinbach has taught, mentored and advised generations of students, helping beginners develop their textual learning skills and embrace an Orthodox Jewish lifestyle. He was a father figure to thousands, and leaves behind thousands of Baalei Teshuva whom he was Mekarev.

Rav Weinbach also wrote more than a dozen Seforim and English books.
