Rav Yosef Toledano zt”l


rav-yosef-toledanoIt is with great sadness that we report the passing of Rav Yosef Toledano zt”l, rov of Kehillas Ateres Boruch of Bnei Brak. He was 98.

Rav Toledano was born in Morocco, a son of Rav Refoel Boruch Toledano. In his youth, he learned at Rav Moshe Schneider’s yeshiva in London, where he toiled steadily in Torah learning and became known as a tremendous talmid chochom with unrelenting hasmadah.

Rav Toledano was an uncle of Rav Nissim Toldeno, rosh yeshiva of Shearis Yosef, who was just niftar a month ago.

Rav Toledano was renowned for his comprehensive shiurim and the inspiration he imparted to the masses. One of his popular shiurim was on the pirush of the Ohr Hachaim, on whose yahrtzeit he was niftar.

The levaya will take place today at Kehillas Ateres Boruch in Bnei Brak, followed by kevurah at the Ponovezh Bais Hachaim.

Yehi zichro boruch.
