YWN regrets to inform you of the Petira of HaRav Elyakim Rosenblatt ZATZAL, the Rosh Yeshiva of Kesser Torah in Kew Gardens Hills, Queens.

Rav Rosenblatt was a a Talmud of Hagaon HaRav Aharon Kotler ZATZAL (Lakewood’s BMG), as well as Hagaon HaRav Henach Leibowitz ZATZL (Yeshivas Chofetz Chaim).

HaRav Elyakim Getzel Rosenblatt was a beloved pillar of the Queens community. He had a legendary Ahavas Yisroel for every single Jew who came into contact with him. Yeshiva Kesser Torah, which he founded, was nestled in the heart of Kew Gardens Hills, and provided minyanim constantly through the day and night and a warm respite for those looking to learn. He was a prolific Maggid Shiur and a Baal Hamenegen famed for his sweet and catchy melodies that breathed emotion and majesty into divrei Chazal.

  1. BDE. What a contagious smile! He truly loved every single yid that walked into his Mikdash Me’at. It didn’t matter who you were or what you were. Oy! Who can replace such a lofty neshama! Will be sorely missed!

  2. The Rosh Yeshiva ZTKLLH’H was unbelievable; Such a huge Ba’al Chessed; Such Mystifying Divrei Torah; Great Ba’al Tefilah; He leaves behind an incredible legacy:- His Yeshiva which despite now being a Minyan factory, was once upon a time, an enclave where numerous fellows got molded to religious life, so lovingly and unstintingly; as well as leaving behind a wonderful Rebbetzen and children and family. We shall continue to revere his teachings and memory as long as we live.

  3. I was most fortunate to be the beneficiary of his unconditional friendship and listening to his singing
    when he was a bais medrash bochur in the Philadelphia Yeshiva [early 60’s]. Truly a Tzadik Nister! BDE.

  4. Rabbi Rosenblatt, ZTL, taught his students to be thoughtful and analytical in ALL facets of Torah. He excuded care, warmth and goodness in ALL aspects of life. Pshat, chessed, emmess, sensitivity, da’as Torah — the “real realities” of life – were the things he strove to imbue within us. A great great man who cared, who helped changed people’s lives. Together with his esteemed Rebbitzen, YLC, they formed a dynamic duo, catalysts of insight, change and growth. “Old school” values meshed with understanding of “new school” realities which impact our generation. Rebbe, you will be missed beyond description. Thank you for ALL that you did for me, for my family. You cared, you never stopped caring, your shmuessin and role modeling inspired, and continue to inspire, me and ALL your talmidim and mispallelim. Please be a meilitz yosher for us, we need it now more than ever.
