Rav Amnon Yitzchak and his brother, Rav Uri, will be sitting shivah at 6 Rechov Yosef in the Bayit Vegan neighborhood of Yerushalayim.

Rav Amnon Yitzchak, who is 59, is renowned for his involvement in kiruv through his ‘Shofar’ organization and via lectures in various media and on the internet. Rav Amnon was born in Tel Aviv to a Yemenite Jewish family and became religious at the age of 24 after stumbling across a sefer Kitzur Shulchan Aruch that he received for his bar mitzvah.
