YWN regrets to inform you of the petirah of HaRav Sheftel Neuberger, zt’l, Sheftel Meir ben Naftoli Halevi, Nasi of Yeshivas Ner Yisroel. Rav Sheftel, z’tl, has been sick for the past year.
Rav Neuberger was the son of Rav Naftali Neuberger, z’tl, president of Ner Yisroel for many years. Following Rav Naftali’s death in 2005, Rav Sheftel succeeded his father as Nasi.
Rav Sheftel’s devotion to the yeshiva and the Baltimore community as a whole was legendary. He was one of the most well-known and beloved figures in Baltimore’s frum community.
He was also famed for his beautiful and inspiring tefillos as a ba’al tefillah. Many people flocked to Ner Yisrael for the Yamim Noraim just to hear Rav Sheftel serve as the Ba’al Tefilloh.
Rav Sheftel left behind his rebbetzin and children, as well as his siblings: Rav Shraga Neuberger, Reb Yaakov Neuberger, Reb Yitzchok Neuberger, and Rav Ezra Neuberger.
UPDATE: The Levaya will take place Wednesday at 1PM in the Yeshiva Bais Medrash. No visitors from outside the Yeshiva’s bubble will be allowed into the Yeshiva Bais Medrash or Mechina Bais Medrash buildings. The Ezras Noshim will be open to women, but women must enter/exit through the door facing the Administration building.
There will be space for guests in the Dining Room with socially distant seating.
Masks must be worn everywhere on campus.
Due to covid, we encourage people to participate online or by phone instead of coming to campus.
You may follow the funeral procession to the cemetery, but only family will be allowed in the cemetery due to covid restrictions.
