עולם התורה באבל • נפלה עטרת ראשנו – Rav Chaim Pinchos Scheinberg zt”l

53

chaim-pinchos-scheinberg10:43 p.m. IL/4:43 p.m. EST: It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Rav Chaim Pinchos Scheinberg zt”l, senior rosh yeshiva of Yeshiva Torah Ore in Yerushalayim and rov of Kiryat Mattersdorf, who had been hospitalized at Shaarei Tzedek Medical Center in Yerushalayim. He was 101 years old.

At Yeshiva Torah Ore and across Eretz Yisroel, Tehillim was being said for Rav Scheinberg, whose condition had deteriorated over the past few days.

Rav Scheinberg was a member of the Moetzes Gedolei HaTorah in Eretz Yisroel. His wife, Rebbetzin Basha (Bessie) Scheinberg a”h, to whom he was married for 80 years, passed away two years ago. She was a daughter of Rav Yaakov Yosef and Rebbetzin Aidel Herman zt”l, the renowned mokirei rabononmachnisei orech and Torah pioneers in America.

Rav Scheinberg was born in 1910 in Poland. He moved to the United States at the age of nine and attended public school. It was actually his father-in-law, Rav Herman, who got the young Chaim Pinchos Scheinberg out of public school and into a yeshiva. That relationship came full circle when Rav Scheinberg married his rebbetzin.

Rav Scheinberg attended Yeshiva Rabbi Jacob Joseph (RJJ) at the age of 14. He then learned at Rav Yehuda Levenberg’s Yeshiva Bais Medrash LeRabbonim in New Haven, Connecticut. At age seventeen, Rav Scheinberg learned at Yeshiva Rabbeinu Yitzchok Elchonon where he studied under the Meisitcher Illui, Rav Shlomo Polachek, as well as Rav Moshe Soloveitchik, and Rav Shimon Shkop (who lived in New York for a short period).

After marrying his rebbetzin at the age of 19, Rav Scheinberg and his wife moved to Mir, Poland, where Rav Scheinberg learned in the Mir Yeshiva for five years. The Rov and Rebbetzin were from a handful of Americans in Mir at that time.

Rav and Rebbetzin Scheinberg returned to the US and Rav Scheinberg became a maggid shiur at the New Haven Yeshiva, which ultimately closed in 1938. He then became the mashgiach at the Yeshiva Chofetz Chaim in Queens. Hes later founded Yeshiva Torah in Bensonhurst with the assistance of his brother and son-in-law.

In the 1960s, Rav and Rebbetzin Scheinberg relocated from the United States to Israel, where Rav Scheinberg reestablished Yeshiva Torah Ore.

Rav Scheinberg’s genius in Torah was recognized at a relatively young age, when he authored the monumental seforim Tabaas Hachoshen. For many decades, Rav Scheinberg led Torah Ore with selfless devotion to every talmid. Thousands of its alumni have gone on to become roshei yeshiva, rabbonim, rabbeim, and professional lay leaders of Jewish communities throughout the world.  The rosh yeshiva’s teachings and seforim are disseminated by his talmidim across the globe.

Yehi zichro boruch.

  9. Baruch Dayan HaEmes What a tragedy we caused cause we cant get our act together & do teshuva

    WHAT ARE WE ALL WAITING FOR? has klal yisroel gotten the message from Hashem-waiting for us to start doing teshuva-have YOU done anything yet? how many more tragedies & Tzaddikim will it take C”V before we wake up & start doing teshuva? OVER 80 GEDOLEI HADOR have passed away within the past year R”L. HOW MANY MORE DO WE NEED TO LOSE C”V to let hashem know that we get the message for klal yisroel to start doing teshuva ASAP?

  10. EVERYONE IS ASKING THE SAME QUESTION, WHAT IS HAPPENING TO OUR GEDOLEI HADOR WORLDWIDE?
    it is supposed to be a wake-up call from Hashem for klal yisroel to start doing teshuva ASAP
    i.e. when something happens to a person privately it is a message from Hashem to him alone BUT when something happens to a GADOL HADOR then it is a message to all of KLAL YISROEL, this tzaddik-7 others ALL IN CRITICAL CONDITION-is a message for teshuva before things get worse C”V
    MAY all these tzaddikim have a refuah shleima asap

  11. once again a giant has passed from us who is left from that dor to lead us with emes and tolerance, love and compassion

  12. there’s a famous story when he went to the ??? ???? somebody introduced ?’ ???? ???? then a younger man to the ??? ???? telling the??”? ??? ???? that ?’ ???? ???? came all the way from America a place where there’s running ?????? ???? with his wife to learn torah in Europe, the ??? ???? wasn’t impressed, he said if hashem could come from ???? to give the torhas on ?? ???? then what’s the big deal to come from America? this is a lesson for everybody to realise that the torah has to be tackled from the best approach, without cheshboinis, and patting oneself on the back.

  13. “who was renowned for wearing dozens of pairs of tzitzis”

    That’s not what made the Tzadik and one of the Gedolei Hador Z’TZ”L renowned…

    R’ Scheinberg ZT”L was renowned for his Ahavas Yisroel & what he did for Klal Yisroel as a nation…

    My neshama needs a major refuah…

    Please don’t anyone make despicable comments on how it’s not a such a loss “he lived a full life being 101”.

    If all of us were aware of what the Tzadik meant to us and on how he helped sustain Klal Yisroel while being alive, that thought wouldn’t enter anyone mind.

    It’s not a huge loss for the Tzadik, but a horrible tragedy for Klal Yisroel

  14. Boruch Dayan HaEmmes
    The Rosh Yeshiva ZT”L was always known to be warm and friendly to whomever he met and demanded Gadlus BaTorah from B’nei Torah. I would like to recount two stories: 1) I once asked to Rosh Yeshiva if I could get a Brocha to which he readily agreed. I then asked if the Rosh Yeshiva ZT”L would mind if I get a picture with him. The Rosh Yeshiva said only if I am Mekabel to learn 5 more minutes of whatever time I planned to stop at Seder.
    2) Around seven years ago,on Chol HaMoed Sukkos I heard that the Rosh Yeshiva ZT”L was up to visitors. I dashed with my wife and 2 year old son to the Rosh Yeshiva’s apartment. In our haste, we forgot to put socks on my son’s feet. When we came and got a Brocha, the Rosh Yeshiva motioned to me that he wanted to tell me something. I leaned forward and he told me “Please put on some socks for your son, he might catch a cold!”- By big people there is no such thing as anyone or anything that is small! (Parenthetically, when my wife asked the Rebbetzin ZT”L for a Brocha as well.[The Rebbetzin was not privy to the conversation I had with the Rosh Yeshiva.] The Rebbetzin mentioned the same thing to my wife that we should put socks on our son otherwise he might catch a cold!)
    Who could forgot his famous Thursday night Chakiros? (I was not there, but the famed Sefer Mishmeres Chaim are the Shailos and the answers the Rosh Yeshiva provided at that time.) His Yashrus in Lomdus and Simchas HaChaim will be sorely missed and we are truly in need of Rachemei Shomayim Merubim!
    TNTZB”H
    Umacha Hashem Elokim Dimah Me’al Kol Ponim Amein V’amein.

  16. OY!! HASHEM PLEASE BRING MOSHIACH NOW!! HOW MUCH MORE PAIN AND SUFFERING CAN KLAL YISRAEl GO THROUGH?? Klal Yisrael Lets all wake up and to Teshuvah so the geulah will come!! BDE Rav Scheinberg was such a tzaddik..

  17. I am totaly stunned! Don’t know what to say! What a loss! How do we go on? Who can forget his positive uplifting shmuzen? His loving potch on the cheek? He was a Gadol amongst Gedolim! We realy believed he would lead us to greet Moshiach! Where do we turn now? May all the Brachos he gave us all, be mikuyam veren! We were Zoche to daven with him on Shabbos when he stayed by the Schindlers in Flatbush a few years ago. He gave all of us & our children Brachos Friday night. He was a Father to all of Klal Yisroel. We miss him & feel the tremendous loss already!

  18. to #41 Rabbaim

    see the list of over 80 Gedolei hador that have passed away R”L within the past year IN LAST WEEKS YATED

    cause we just don’t get Hashems message for Teshuva.

    how many more will need to go C”V IS up to us depending on how soon klal yisroel wakes up to teshuva.

    may IT START ASAP

  19. Dear schnitzel ,
    A 14 yr. old boy should realize that the majority of the torah that Rav Scheinberg ZTL learned was in his years as a bachur. He was able to give over to others for 7 decades because he spent his time wisely as a young bachur. Please chap arein Klal Yisrael needs you.

  20. Well what are we to do now? This was 8 weeks after petira Vignitz, 2 days after the Toulouse Massacre, 6 months after Leiby Kletzky, Iran going Nuclear, Unrestful peace in Galut Yishmae-l,…Scary times. Each time a tzaddik passes away, each time Hashem’s presence is removed, each time we become vulnerable, and we have to defend ourseleves…again.

    G-d help us.

  21. Since I am out of a job so I can’t afford to buy the Yated would some one be so kind to give the list of the 80 Gedolim who have left this world during this year.

    I thank you in advance.

    May we all wake up and do Teshuva NOW.

  22. PLEASE POST, ITS A ZECHUS FOR THE ROSH YESHIVA!
    To All,

    I am working on an article on Rav Sheinberg zt”l for a major publication. Please share your anecdotes, stories or personal recollections of Rav Sheinberg zt”l
