It is with great sadness that Matzav.com reports the passing of Rav Avrohom Tzvi Beck zt”l, rov of Adas Yisroel in Melbourne, Australia.
His petirah comes less than two weeks after Rav Beck moved from Melbourne, where he served for three decades, to Eretz Yisroel, settling in Beit Shemesh.
Rav Beck left Australia with great fanfare, as reported here on Matzav, fulfilling his lifelong dream of settling in Eretz Hakodesh. But the Ribono Shel Olam brought that dream to a close with his petirah today, ending a life of harbotzas haTorah and Torah leadership, as the rov’s many talmidim and admirers are plunged into mourning.
The levaya is being held at the Vizhnitzer Shul in Beit Shemesh and will then continue at Kikar Zupnik in Yerushalayim and the Toldos Aharon Bais Medrash. Kevurah will follow on Har Hazeisim.
Yehi zichro boruch.
