9:30PM EST: (UPDATE BELOW) We regret to inform you of the Petira of Hagon Rav Shaul Brus ZATZAL, a Rosh Yeshiva and Magid Shiur in Yeshivas Bais Hatalmud for more than 40 years. Rav Brus was also widely known for his Shiur which was given in the Kapishnitzer Bais Medrash in Boro Park for many years, and was one of the last remaining Talmidim of Hagon Rav Boruch Ber Leibowitz ZATZAL.
Rav Brus had suffered a serious stroke in November 2006 (reported HERE on YWN), and never recovered.
UPDATE 11:30PM EST: Misaskim tells YWN that the Levaya is scheduled for Wednesday morning at the Kapishnitzer Bais Medrash in Boro Park (14th Avenue & 55th Street) at 10:00AM, and then at Yeshiva Bais Hatalmud at 11:00AM. The Kevura will take place in Queens.
