Rav Moshe Ehrlich zt”l


rav moshe ehrlichIt is with great sadness that we report the passing last night of Rav Moshe Ehrlich, a prominent chossid of Karlin-Stolin. He was 60 years old.

Rav Moshe was son of the legendary Yiddish composer and lyricist, Rav Yom Tov Ehrlich zt”l. Rav Moshe was a beloved individual, a talmid chochom and baal chessed, who possessed great yiras Shomayim and lived a life of constant aliyah in ruchniyus. His passing has plunged his family and friends into mourning.

  1. So Sad!
    It’s hard to fathom!
    עיני עיני יורדה מים
    Reb Moshe ז”ל??? How do you even write that?
    His wife was niftar about 20 months ago and the family was trying to regroup after her illness so tore them apart and they were literally left bereft. She was such a mainstay of the family especially when Reb Moshe z”l who had been a גביר had lost his money and had to even give up his home in Yerushalayim. They had to move to a rental apt. Reb Moshe was always so besimcha – it was even hard to tell that he was living with such a pekel.
    A little over two months ago he took ill and was so traumatized that he hardly shared it. And nebech now he’s gone! They even held up his levaya last night for lack of funds רח”ל.
    May the אבי יתומים shower the little kinderlech who have now only HIM to rely upon!
