Rav Scheinberg Hospitalized

chaim-pinchos-scheinbergRav Chaim Pinchos Scheinberg, senior rosh yeshiva of Yeshiva Torah Ore in Yerushalayim and rov of Kiryat Mattersdorf, has been hospitalized at Shaarei Tzedek Medical Center in Yerushalayim. The 101-year-old rosh yeshiva was admitted to the hospital shortly before the onset of Shabbos.

At Yeshiva Torah Ore and across Eretz Yisroel, Tehillim is being said for Rav Scheinberg, who we are told is in critical condition, suffering from kidney failure and a blood infection.

Rav Scheinberg is 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 rabonon, machnisei 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.

In the 1960s, Rav and Rebbetzin Scheinberg relocated from the United States to Israel, where Rav Scheinberg founded 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 has 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.

May Hakadosh Boruch Hu give the rosh yeshiva koach and gezunt to continue teaching, guiding and inspiring Klal Yisroel for many more years.

All are asked to daven for Chaim Pinchos ben Yuspa.

  2. Everyone is asking the top Question: WHAT IS HAPPENING TO ALL 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

  4. you may be saying some things correctly, however, screaming teshuva in that way may not do much. Best to show ahavas yisroel, maasim tovim, grow in your own middos and inyonim and serve as a good example….and support orgs and people who help far-away Jews to come closer.

  5. LET’S ALL WAKE UP ?& DO TESHUVA :

    You can start by remembering to also include R’ Yaakov Yosef and R’ Belsky!

  6. Rav Scheinberg shlita became Mashgiach Ruchani When the Yeshiva Chofetz Chaim was still in Williamsburg an continued in Queens
