Early this morning, the news arrived that Klal Yisroel lost one of its true heroic public servants of the post-World War II era with the passing of Rabbi David B. Hollander zt”l. Many articles will be written about Rabbi Hollander’s devotion to our gedolim and his strength and fortitude in protecting our treasured mesorah from those who wished to deviate from the standards set forth by our Torah leaders. It is difficult to describe what one individual accomplished during his lifetime or the credit that is due to him for his service as a shliach tzibur for over eight decades.
The levaya will take place today, Tuesday, at 4:30 p.m., at Rabbi Hollander’s shul, The Hebrew Alliance of Brighton Beach, located at 2915 Brighton 6th Street in Brooklyn, NY. Kevurah will take place in Eretz Yisroel.
Rabbi Hollander did not merit to leave behind any children. He is survived by his wife, Mrs. Fay Hollander, and a brother who resides in Eretz Yisroel.
May he be a meilitz yosher for all of Klal Yisroel.
