VIDEO & PHOTOS: Levayah Of HaRav Chaim Sarna ZATZAL


Over a thousand people gathered in the Geula neighborhood for the levayah of HaRav Chaim Sarna ZATZAL, Rosh Mesivta Rabah of Yeshivas Chevron. Many gedolim and rabbonim attended the Levayah, which made its way from Knesses Yisroel on Chaggai Street.

Rzv Sarna was the son of the late Rabbi Yechezkel Sarna and grandson of the late Rabbi Moshe Epstein, heads of the famed Slabodka, later called Chevron ‘Knesset Yisrael’ Yeshiva.

Rav Sarna studied in the Lomje yeshiva for young students in Petach Tikva, and was a classmate of Rav Chaim Kanievsky.

In 1962, at the young age of 33, Rabbi Sarna began teaching at the Chevron Yeshiva.

With the passing of his father in 1969, Rabbi Sarna became co-head of the Chevron Yeshiva, along with his uncle Rabbi Moshe Chevroni and Rabbi Simcha Zissel Brody.

  1. BD”E. He was a great man who managed to hide much of his tzidkus.
    I personally know of a rich person who used to be a great baal tzedoko and who would be visited all the time by all the Roshei Yeshivos and Rabonim who called him their friend etc. Until he lost all his money after which no one would even acknowledge his existence anymore. Besides HaRav Sarne zl who, the only one of all, phoned up and asked if he could come past, not for any money but just in order not to break the friendship!
    May he be a meilitz Yoshor on our Dor Yosom.
