Updated: It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Rav Tzvi Mordechai Felder zt”l, longtime rov of Bais Medrash Bais Aharon on 18th Avenue in Boro Park. The levaya will first be held in Lakewood at the Congregations Sons of Israel Holocaust Memorial Chapel on East Seventh Street and will then continue at 3 p.m. at Rav Felder’s shul and home, located at 18th Avenue and 49th Street in Boro Park.
Rav Felder leaves behind a family of bnei Torah and marbitzei Torah. His children are Harav Shmuel Felder, noted posek in Beth Medrash Govoha in Lakewood, NJ; Reb Simcha Felder, New York City Council Member, who resides in Boro Park; Reb Chaim Moshe Felder of Monsey; Mrs. Shaindel Fluk of Brooklyn; and Mrs. Binah Cunin of Crown Heights.
Kevurah will take place in Eretz Yisroel.
Shivah details have not been finalized, but shivah will likely take place at Rav Felder’s home.
Yehi zichro boruch.
