Rabbi Shloima Zalman Rosengarten z”l


candle-small6It is with great sadness that we report that passing of Rabbi Shloima Zalman Rosengarten z”l at the age of 38.

Reb Shloima Zalman was a beloved member of the Presidential Estates kehillah in Lakewood, NJ. A friend to one and all and one who devoted himself fully to limud haTorah and avodas Hashem, and possessed exemplary middos, his passing leaves a painful void in the hearts of all who knew him.

Reb Shloima Zalman collapsed suddenly on Tuesday and went into cardiac arrest. He was taken to Kimball Medical Center and then to St. Barnabas in Livingston, NJ.

Reb Shloima Zalman was a son of Rabbi and Mrs. Shalom Rosengarten of Monsey and a son-in-law of Rabbi and Mrs. Chatzkel Friedman of Brooklyn.

Reb Shloima Zalman is survived by his wife, Bassie, and their children.

Levayah information will be provided once it is finalized.

Yehi zichro boruch.

Update: The levaya will take place at 2 p.m. at the Bais Shalom Bais Medrash of Beth Medrash Govoha. Kevurah will take place in Yerushalayim.

  1. BDE a 9 year old Lakewood boy Raitzik was also just Niftar R”L on the same day.

    I CRY TO HASHEM, why does this need to happen in the middle of adar-a time of Simcha? why can’t we face reality as a nation & confess to Hashem that we get his wake-up call for teshuva?

    it brings tragic tears to my eyes, as I write this, wishing we would finally do teshuva & could’ve prevented this from Happening.

    don’t you think after 2 major local tragedies-in a matter of hours (besides endless tzaros worldwide) its time we finally faced reality & did teshuva together as a nation?

    Thank you MATZAV for keeping me updated with the latest news
