Tragic, Sudden Petira Of Reb Shlomie Gross Z”L


YWN regrets to inform you of the sudden Petira of Reb Shloime Yehuda Gross Z”L, on Friday afternoon, at the age of 50 R”L.

Reb Shloime, a resident of Flatbush, was a tremendous Baal Tzedakah, who helped Mosdos and gave Tzedakah around the globe with an open heart. He was a true Ben Torah, who was extremely close with Maran Hagon Rav Shmuel Berenbaum ZATZAL, the Mirrer Rosh Yeshiva, and was a Mispallel at the Bais Medrash of HaRav Avrohom Schorr Shlita, Khal Tiferes Yaakov.

Reb Shloime suddenly collapsed into cardiac arrest on Erev Shabbos. Hatzolah Paramedics attempted to save his life, but were R”L unable to. He was taken to Methodist Hospital, where doctors pronounced him dead.

He leaves behind an Almana, and Yesomim R”L, and will be sorely missed by his friends, and the thousands of Mosdos which he supported during his lifetime .

The Levaya is scheduled for Motzei Shabbos, at 8:30PM at Khal Tiferes Yaakov, 1212 East 15th Street near Avenue L, and the Kevura will be in Eretz Yisroel.

Boruch Dayan Emmes…


  1. B’DE. V’ahavta as Hashem, B’chol Levavcha, B’chol Nafshecha- UB’CHOL MEODECHA!! The definition of a BAL CHESED was Shloma Gross. I’m in utter shock and disbelief. His life should be a model to everyone, and he will be missed by more people then we even realize. Gevalt, Hakodosh Baruch Hu needed another beautiful flower for Shabbos in Shomayim

  2. BDE
    I cant believe it.
    Reb Slomoimy was a true ish bain anoshim, a real geshmakeh mentch, lebedig, with such chiyus. A big baal chesed/tzedakah. He’s definitely going up there with full pockets.
    Shloimy go up there and make a tumult, break thru those gates and be a mailitz yoisher like you know how.

  3. Thousands of people at the Levaya of this Ish Ashkoles as Rav Schorr cried out. How we need so many who have the same gift from Hashem as he had to become the Baal Chessed with total negation of self to Torah, Limud HaTorah and Gedolei Torah without compromise. It’s not about me and this world………… it never was and never will be. He was mekadaish Hashem in the way he lived! Thousands at a levaya are the testimony.

  4. the 1st was r’ shmuel aurbach shlita, then was r berel provasky shlita , then the 3rd speaker i missed name. next was r avrohom shorr shlita, then r’ yossi friedman, shloimys business partner and dear friend for the past 27 yrs.
    then a son in law r’ kaplowitz, another son in law r’ kaufman, and last was a son r aron gross

  5. R’ Shloimy’s mother- zuhl zayn gezunt un shtark- and my late father o”h were first cousins. R” Shloimy embodied the Pirkei Avos mandate of Torah, Avodah and Gemilus Chasadim. A tremendous loss for Klal Yisroel. I am proud to have been his relative.
