Agudath Israel of America is devastated at the loss today of one of the great Torah leaders of our generation, Rabbi Dovid Feinstein, ZT”L. Rabbi Feinstein was Rosh HaYeshiva of the Mesivtha Tifereth Jerusalem yeshiva in Manhattan’s East Side and a member of the Moetzes Gedolei HaTorah of Agudath Israel for decades. He was known for his Torah knowledge, his sagely guidance, and his communal leadership in times of uncertainty.
“There are no words. We are reeling,” said Rabbi Chaim Dovid Zwiebel, executive vice president of Agudath Israel. “Rabbi Feinstein was a true manhig hador, leader of our generation, and posek hador, halachic authority for the generation. The entire Jewish world has suffered a terrible blow with his death.”
