The Yeshiva University Family mourns the passing of the Senior Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshivat Har Etzion (Gush), RIETS Rosh Yeshiva, and inaugural Rosh Kollel of YU’s Gruss Institute/Kollel in Yerushalayim. Rav Lichtenstein zt’l was a true gadol b’Torah of the first order, with a unique breadth of knowledge encompassing many areas, and was an inspiration and a guiding light for our community by virtue of his great yiras shamayim, his remarkable moral and ethical conduct, and his exemplary personal middos. Yehi Zichro Baruch.

Rabbi Taubes and Rabbi Eli Cohn, both of whom were talmidim of Rav Aharon, spoke to the student body about their Rebbe and shared personal insights reflecting the gadol that he was. Please click here to listen to the hespedim.
