Rav Moshe Schwab zt”l

12

It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Rav Moshe Schwab zt”l, rosh kollel of the Detroit Lakewood Kollel in Oak Park, Michigan. He was 73 years old.

Born in London, Rav Schwab was a son of Mr. Herman (Chaim Tzvi) and Mrs. Betty (Baila) Schwab. Rav Moshe was a talmid of the Gateshead Yeshivah and then, in the early ‘60s, joined Beth Medrash Govoha in Lakewood, NJ, where he learned under Rav Shneur Kotler.

Several years later, Rav Moshe, along with Rav Shmuel Irons, sparked a remarkable revolution in Detroit by bringing yungeleit of Lakewood’s Beth Medrash Govoah to the city and raising its levels of communal Torah study.  Rav Moshe was a noted talmid chochom and marbitz Torah, who devoted his life to teaching and spreading Torah.

The levaya will take place tonight, at 8 p.m., at the Kollel of Oak Park, located at 15230 Lincoln in Oak Park, Michigan, followed by kevurah in Monsey, NY.

Yehi zichro boruch.
