rav-yitzchok-tuvia-weissHarav Yitzchok Tuvia Weiss, Gaon Av Beis Din of the Badatz of the Eidah Hacharedis in Yerushalayim, will arrive in the United States today. The Gaavad will be crowned as member of the presidium of Kollel Shomrei Hachomos-Tzedakas Rav Meir Baal Haness this Thursday evening, Erev Pesach Sheini/May 7, at a banquet to be held at Ateres Avrohom Hall in Williamsburg. Pesach Sheini, 14 Iyar, is the yahrzeit of Rav Meir Baal Haness.

In February 2002, Rav Weiss was appointed as a dayan on the Badatz, filling the position that became vacant upon the petirah of Rav Binyamin Rabinowitz zt”l, Segan Rosh Av Beis Din of the Badatz.

Rav Weiss, who was a child saved in the Kindertransport immediately before World War II, came from Antwerp where he served as dayan of Kahal Machzikei Hadaas for many years.

In April 2003, Rav Weiss was appointed as Gaavad of the Badatz, the position vacated after the petirah of Rav Yisroel Moshe Dushinsky zt”l, who served as Gaavad from 1996 to 2003. Rav Dushinsky’s passing was almost immediately after the petirah of Rav Yisroel Yaakov Fisher zt”l, who served as Rosh Av Beis Din from 1996 to 2003.

Also being crowned as a member of the presidium of Kollel Shomrei Hachomos-Tzedakas Rabbi Meir Baal Haness is Harav Shmuel halevi Wosner, Rosh Yeshiva of Chachmei Lublin and renowned rov of the Zichron Meir neighborhood of Bnei Brak and author of Shevet Halevi.
