Rest in Peace, Rabbi Weinberg

A year and a day ago, this Blog implored all to work and pray for the recovery of Rabbi Noach Weinberg. The Rabbi, as mentioned in that post, is one of my personal heroes.

Today, with sadness and regret, I now report that Rabbi Weinberg passed away this morning in Jerusalem. I was privileged to have met him, and to have spoken with him; he has done many positive things for me and my family, and indeed, for the entire world. Many positive projects and ventures, benefiting Jews and non-Jews alike, have Rabbi Weinberg's latent fingerprints on them.

Over 5 years ago, when I was in Israel for a short stay, serious concerns regarding Rabbi Weinberg's health were being whispered by individuals known by me to be cognizant of the Rabbi's situation. That he survived this long is a testament to the grace of G-d, and to the Rabbi's strength and determination.

Rabbi Weinberg will be sorely missed by those who knew him, but the works and projects he founded will continue to move forward and onward.

Rest in Peace, Rabbi Weinberg! May your memory be for a blessing!
