Hagon HaRav Zundal Kroizer Shlita, one of the Ziknei Yerushalayim, and one of the biggest Gedolim and Tzadikim in the world today, is in the hospital, and reportedly in serious condition. Rav Kroizer has remained unknown to most people, as he sits and learns privately. Very rarely does he allow people into his home to give them Brachos or advice.
It is unknown why he was hospitalized.
Please be Mispallel for Zundel ben Faiga.
The following is an excerpt from an article that was written in the Yated by Rabbi Pinchoz Lipschutz in 2011:
He has written and published seforim on all of Shas, Chumash, Tanach and Tehillim. He even published a siddur with his own peirush. Yet most people have never heard of him.
His name is Rav Zundel. Rav Chaim Brim, a Yerushalayimer giant who was steeped in Torah and all its secrets, is quoted as saying that if there are two people in this world in whose merit the world stands, they are Rav Chaim Kanievsky and Rav Zundel Kroizer.
If so, you will ask, how can it be that a man of such caliber remains unknown in a generation in which giants are so needed and so venerated?
It is actually a gift from Hashem, says Rav Chaim Kanievsky. He remarked that it must be that Hashem loves Rav Zundel more than he loves Rav Chaim, because He keeps Rav Zundel hidden, and people don’t bother him with shailos; for brachos andtzorchei tzibbur the way they bother Rav Chaim. Since he did not become famous, he is able to learn Torah uninterrupted, day and night.
And he does. He wakes up around chatzos every night to learn until daybreak, at which time he davens Shacharis kevosikin. He has been doing so for as long as anyone can remember. EveryShabbos morning, after davening, the bochurim in his presence are treated to the special zechus of being able to ask him any question on any sugyah in Shas and receiving his answers…..
