candle914Baruch Dayan HaEmmes – HaGaon HaRav Yehuda Aryeh Treger, Rosh Yeshivas Chafetz Chaim Antwerp and son-in-law of HaGaon HaRav Shlomo Zalman Auerbach ZT”L ZY”A, was niftar at the age of 81. He was known as the Antwerp Rosh Yeshiva.

Rav Treger traveled to the United States for treatment for his difficult illness about a half year ago. During his illness the Machzikei Hadas Beis Din called on its tzibur to be mispallel for the rav daily. He was niftar in the USA.

As a young man he learned in Ponevezh and Slobodka. The late gadol hador selected him to become his son-in-law because of his advancement in limud Torah and avodas Hashem despite being from Amshinov Chassidic roots and that his father was a working man, not one immersed in Torah fulltime.

Levaya arrangements to be announced.

  1. The despite being of chassidic roots need not be mentioned as for two reasons this wouldn’t be taken into account. 1-Rav Shlomo Zalman ztl was a great individual who would not be bothered with something like that 2-He himself,as many gedolim,had illustrious chassidic roots.

  2. BDE

    this is horrific & tragic. our Gedolim are leaving us on a weekly basis & its just getting worse R”L. do you remember just a few years ago-before this mageifa of Gedolim started-when we only heard once or twice a year c”v that a tzaddik was niftar? 18 Gedolei Hador have passed away already this year of 2015 R”L

    (just to mention the ones niftar THIS past few days)

    is it even POSSIBLE for someone to say this is coincidence?

    will WE EVER start doing teshuva?

    I’m sorry to be the one to say this & it brings tears to my eyes, but righteous tzaddikim don’t belong staying in a world of people who won’t do teshuva, they belong with Hashem & his shechina in olam Haba.
    If we want Hashem to give us these Tzaddikim to guide us through the generation then we need to listen to them %100 & we need to do teshuva to be deserving of their guidance & Torah.

    May we all start doing Teshuva ASAP before any other Tzaddikim are niftar C”V

    May his neshama have an aliya

  3. #3: No, it is not a coincidence. They were all elderly to very old gentlemen. It is tragic when young people die; it is not unexpected when elderly people are niftar.

  4. to #5

    so what is your reply to Hashem on these last TWELVE children recently niftar in less then a month YOUNG & IN STRANGE TRAGIC WAYS?
