YWN regrets to inform you of the petira of Rav Raphael Yitzchok Hakohen Lieberman Z”L of Flatbush. He was 62.
R’ Raphael lived in Flatbush, where he delivered a Daf Yomi Shiur for decades. He was almost never seen without his eyes inside a Gemara, and was literally a Baki B’shas.
He battled an illness for the past few years until his Petira on Motzei Shabbos.
He leaves behind a Mishpacha of Bnei Torah all following in his Derech of Hasmadah in learning and doing Chesed.
An in depth article about Reb Raphael will be published at a later date.
The Levaya will take place today Sunday, at 10:00AM at Shomrei Hadaas (39th street & 14th Ave).
Boruch Dayan Ha’Emmes…
