candle-small4It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Rabbi Yosef Fabian z”l. He was 99.

Rabbi Fabian was hit by a car in Los Angeles earlier this week.

Rabbi Fabian, a member of the Mir Yeshiva in Shanghai, later became a noted marbitz Torah, influencing many people with his Torah, avodah and middos tovos.

A levaya will be held in Cleveland tonight at 9 p.m. at Young Israel of Greater Cleveland in Beachwood. A levaya was held last night in Los Angeles.

Rabbi Fabian is survived by Mrs. Chaya Lebovics of Los Angeles and Mrs. Alliza Thav of Baltimore.

Shivah will be at the home of Rabbi Fabian’s grandson, Rabbi Aharon Dovid Lebovics, at 3485 Shannon Road in Cleveland Heights, OH.

  1. He was a big Marbitz Torah already in the early years of the Cleveland Torah Community.

    During WW2 he was with the Mirrer Yeshiva in Shanghai.

  2. A Tzaddik,pleasant demeanor, never raised his voice, mekabel kol Adam beseiver ponim yufos,a great mechanech and an ish kosher
    May he be a mailitz yoshor for klall yisroel

  3. I heard the Person who hit him WAS ON HIS CELL PHONE AT THE TIME
    This should be a huge lesson to everyone
    Is that Phone call worth a human’s Life
    PLEASE PUT DOWN THE PHONE IN THE CAR! I appeal to you PLease

  4. The person was not on their cell phone.
    Having known Rabbi Fabian for many years I could only imagine his reaction if the driver would’ve had the chance to apologize. He would have put on that charming smile that we will never get to see again, and in his soft unforgettable voice would’ve said “it’s ok”.
    He was a true Mentch.
    He never expected anything from anyone, if anyone did anything for him he would thank them profusely, wondering why the benefactor went out of his way for him.
    I feel very blessed to have met him and thank Hashem for the merit of knowing such a person for more than 40 years.
    May Moshioch come ASAP

  7. I was just listening to levayah and a family member clearly said that FALSE rumors are being spread about the driver texting and being on the phone ==== they are not true!
    so check your facts before you spread lashon hara that is prolonging this galus!
