R’ Meir Leib Brog z”l


It is with great sadness that we report the passing of R’ Meir Leib Brog z”l of Lakewood, NJ.

An outstanding yungerman and ben Torah, R’ Meir Leib battled illness for a protracted period. Scores of Yidden had been davening for the recovery of R’ Chaim Meir Leib ben Yocheved.

A talmid of Yeshivas Novominsk and a member of the kollel at Bais Medrash Govoha, R’ Meir Leib was a son of Rav Eliyahu Brog, rov of the Bais Yisroel Torah Center in Flatbush.

R’ Meir Leib was a grandson of Rav Shmuel Elchonon Brog zt”l, longtime R”M at Yeshiva Rabbeinu Chaim Berlin, and a great-grandson of Rav Avigdor Miller zt”l.

R’ Meir Leib is survived by his wife, Chava Esty, a daughter of Rabbi and Mrs. Aharon Weintraub, and their three children.

levaya will be held in Lakewood tomorrow, at 1 p.m., at the Bais Yitzchok/Binyan Herzka building of Bais Medrash Govoha.

Yehi zichro boruch.
