YWN regrets to inform you of the Petira of the Glogover Rebbe, HaRav Aryeh Leibish Rubin ZATZAL. He was 67.

The Rebbe contracted COVID-19 in March, and was hospitalized and placed on a ventilator at the time. He unfortunately never recovered, was placed on dialysis, and was in and out of the hospital. He was Niftar at his home on Friday morning.

The Rebbe served as a Menahel at the Spinka Cheder in Boro Park for more than 40 years.

The Levaya was held on Friday morning at his Bais Medrash on 1814 55th Street.

  1. BDE – my father was born in Glogev in 1928, and his father was also born there, in 1900. The Nazis, YMS’V, occupied it in 1939 and held it almost until the end of the war. 98% of the pre-war buildings were destroyed by Russian shelling in 1945.

  2. RR, I remember going to his Shul 20 years ago when his daughter married Rabbi Rottenberg’s oldest son here in Forshay. I remember hearing both Glogov and Ropshitz.
