  1. If I am not mistaken, a few years ago, his brother, who was a choshuver avrech in Yeshivas Mir Yerushalayim was nifter in a simmilar situation. May the family have a nechama.

  2. ברוך דיין האמת!
    מי שאמר לעולמו די יאמר לצרתינו די
    ולא ישמע עוד שוד ושבר בגבולינו
    ובעל הנחמות ינחם את האבלים בתוך שאר אבלי ציון וירושלים
    ושנזכה כולנו לאך ורק טוב וחסד שמחה ונחת ובשורות טובות ישועות ונחמות!!!!

  3. Couldn’t be his brother who was niftar
    a couple of years ago, as I saw all
    the other brothers learning in Mir
    and they were not sitting shiva.
    A different Weisenstern.
