rav Yoram AbergelIt is with great sadness that we report the passing of Rav Yoram Michoel Abergel zt”l, rosh yeshiva and mekubal from Netivot. He was 58.

Rav Abergel had been battling illness for a while and had seen a deterioration in his condition this passed week. He passed away at Sheba Medical Center in Tel Hashomer.

As a zechus for Rav Abergel, Thursday evening, the nosi of the Moetzet Chachmei Hatorah of Shas, Rav Shalom Cohen, added the name Chai to Rav Abergel’s name. Unfortunately, he succumbed to his illness over Shabbos.
