Rav Zelig Leib Taussig zt”l


Rav Zelig Leib Taussig zt”lIt is with great sadness that we report the passing of Rav Zelig Leib Taussig zt”l, the Toldos Shmuel Rebbe, at the age of 49.

Rav Taussig was born in Yerushalayim on 8 Av, 1966. His father was Rav Shmuel Taussig, the Rebbe of Toldos Shmuel. His mother was Rebbetzin Hinda Baila Taussig..

In his youth, he studied at the Sanzer Yeshiva. He then married his wife, a daughter of Rav Shmuel Tzvi Kovlovsky, author of Ana Avda.

After the passing of his father, he moved from Bnei Brak to Yerushalayim’s Givat Shaul neighborhood in order to lead his father’s bais medrash on Rechov Alkabetz.

At the Toldos Shmuel Bais Medrash, Rav Taussig would deliver shiurim and drashos, including an Ohr Hachaim shiur each Thursday night attended by large crowds.

Despite many difficulties and tribulations, Rav Taussig took care to lead the bais medrash with devotion.

After contracting a serious illness, Rav Taussig moved to US Shavuos time for medical treatment.

He is survived by his one son, Shimon, and three daughters.

The aron was flown late last night via El Al to Eretz Yisroel. It is expected to arrive at Ben Gurion Airport today at about 5:30 p.m. The levayah will be held at the Toldos Shmuel Bais Medrash on Rechov Alkabetz in Yerushalayim, followed by kevurah on Har Hamenuchos.

Yehi zichro boruch.

    Is it possible for me to stop crying? can you be manachem me? when you know that a tragedy occurred that could have been totally avoided if we only woke up to reality & accepted Hashems wake-up call for teshuva?

    SO the Mageifa of gedolim continues R”L

    7 gedolei Hador just in the month of july alone R”L
    36 Leaders of Klal yisroel since the beginning of 2015 R”L
    over 150 Gedolei Hador & Rabbonim in the past 2 years alone R”L
    Are you going to not call this a Magaifa?
    SAME with the mageifa of children & infants being niftar in strange & tragic ways.
    for complete lists contact Hashems Teshuva movement at theteshuvamovement@yahoo.com
    are we ready yet to come together as a nation for a worldwide teshuva movement with Kinnus & fasting like we did in the times of Purim.

    THE CHOICE IS OURS i.e. if the tzaros continues C”V Theres no one to blame but OURSELVES.

    May his neshama have an aliya & may this tzaddik be the last & final korban for Klal yisroel before we do teshuva.
