Rav Dovid Yitzchok Man zt”l


dovid-yitzchok-manIt is with great sadness that we report the passing of Rav Dovid Yitzchok Man zt”l, rosh yeshiva of Yeshiva Knesses Chizkiyahu in Rechasim. He was 67.

Rav Man had battled illness for the last while, and at the urging of the mashgiach of the yeshiva, Rav Dov Yoffe, the talmidim continually davened and said Tehillim as a zechus for their beloved rosh yeshiva.

Rav Man was a son of Rav Mordechai Leib Man zt”l, rosh yeshiva of Yeshiva Bais Hillel and a member of the Moetzes Gedolei Hatorah of Degel Hatorah. His mother, Rebbetzin Miriam, was a daughter of Rav Hillel Vitkind zt”l, rosh yeshiva of Yeshiva Bais Yosef-Novardok in Tel Aviv.

Rav Dovid Yitzchok, a noted talmid chochom and boki, authored a number of fantastic seforim, including Beer Miriam, Yad Melech, Tehilah L’Dovid and Sukkas Dovid.

His oldest son, Rav Yehoshua, will assume the position of rosh yeshiva of Yeshiva Knesses Chizkiyahu.

His brothers are Rav Eliyahu Man, rosh yeshiva of Yeshiva Ohr Yisroel; Rav Avrohom Yeshaya, rosh yeshiva of Yeshiva Tiferes Moshe; Rav Moshe, rosh yeshiva of Yeshiva Beer Yitzchok in Telz-Stone, and Rav Yosef, rosh yeshiva of Yeshiva Darchei Mordechai.

He is survived by his wife, a daughter of Rav Eliyahu Mishkovsky zt”l, and 13 children.

His sons-in-law include Rav Yaakov Farbstein, dayan on the bais din of Rav Nissim Karelitz.

The levaya will take place tomorrow, Tuesday, at 11 a.m., at Yeshiva Knesses Chizkiyahu. Kevurah will follow at the bais hakevaros in Rechasim.

Yehi zichro boruch.

  5. what a tragedy

    people are starting to die younger & younger cause 79 (Rebetzin kanievsky, Rabbi Tendler Zt”l & the spinka rebbe of yerushalyim ZT”L)
    was not young enough to wake us up to start doing teshuva.
    HOW YOUNG will it take for us to get the message from Hashem for everyone-myself included-to start doing teshuva & return to Hashem? Klal Yisroel already lost a big tzaddik a few weeks ago at the young age of 37 while he was learning over a sefer Rabbi akiva ehrenfeld ZT”L & son of mattesdorfer rav.


  6. I would like to add that I had the zechus to know Reb Dovid ZT’L personally, besides bing a goan adir he wqas a big baal midos. His father was a Hagoan Reb Morchai Mann ZT’L one of the gedolie hador and he was a grandson of Hagoan Hazadik REB Hillel Widkind ZT’L. His sister was married to Hagoan Reb Shimshon Pincus ZT’L, wo were both nebech killed in a car accident a number of years ago. All his brothers are outstanding talmidie chachomim such a beautiful family.
