Rav Yom Tov Yedid zt”l

1

It is with great sadness that Matzav.com reports the passing of Rav Yom Tov Yedid zt”l at the age of 93.

Chacham Yedid served as the rov of the Syrian kehillah in Aleppo, Syria, for years, before resettling in New York several decades ago.

Chacham Yedid was a devoted leader of the Syrian Sefardic Torah community, a respected talmid chochom and marbitz Torah whose hasmadah was singular, and a noted mechaber seforim.

His children include Rav Meir Yedid of Shaarei Tzion, Rav Yitzchok Yedid, Mr. Yaakov Yedid and his son-in-law, Rav Leon Gindi.

The levayah was held this morning at Magen David Yeshiva in Brooklyn. The aron has been flown to Eretz Yisroel for kevurah there.

Yehi zichro boruch.

  1. זכר צדיק וקדוש לברכה
    רועה נאמן היה
    אשרי האיש אשר לא הלך בעצת רשעים ובדרך חטאים לא עמד ובמושב לצים לא ישב. כי אם בתורת ה׳ ילך! יהי זכרו ברוך
