YWN regrets to inform you of the Petira of the famed Mechanech and noted Mechaber Seforim, HaRav Zecharia Fendel ZATZAL, who was Niftar last night after an illness at the age of 82.
He was one of the pioneers in kiruv, beginning over 60 years ago. In fact it is told over, that the Chazon Ish told him personally “you are doing the work of moshiach”. He left behind him a legacy of Torah and Hashkafah.
He is survived by his wife Chava, 12 children, approximately 100 grandchildren, and brother Rabbi Meyer Fendel of Yerushalayim.
The Levaya is scheduled for Friday Morning at 10:30 AM in Shomrei HaChomos on Fort Hamilton Parkway and 43rd Street.
