This morning, in Yerushalayim, HaRav Mordechai Druk ZATZAL, known as the ‘Maggid Mesharim’ was niftar at the age of 66.
Since the Six Day War in 1967, Rav Druk gave a shiur at the Kosel, first toveling in the mikve shortly after 4:00am. From there he went to Shaare Chessed, then Zichron Moshe, spending his entire day delivering Shiurim in Yeshivos, Batei Midrashim, and Kolelim.
Thousands of American Yeshiva Bochrim were Zoche to hear his famous Shalosh Seudos Drashos.
His entire being was just to deliver words of Torah….
In his Tzavah (Will) HaRav Druk wrote that the title “HaRav Hagon” should not be used, and that there should be no Hespeidim at his Levaya.
The Levaya was held today (Monday) at his home on Rechov Shmuel HaNavi, and was brought to Har HaMenuchos for Kevura in the “Chelkas Harabonim”.
