Reb Ahron Hakohen Rothman z”l


candle-small6It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Reb Ahron Hakohen Rothman z”l at the age of 98. Reb Ahron was a talmid muvhak of the Minchas Elazar of Munkatch and was zoche to be mekabel much Torah and chassidus from the Rebbe for many years, inspiration which remained with him until his last day. He would remark that not a day goes by during which he does not wake up and see the image of the Minchas Elazar while reciting Modeh Ani.

Reb Ahron subsequently settled in Los Angeles, but he kept a close connection with the Munkatcher Rebbe and he hosted the Rebbe during the latter’s visits to California.

Approximately 20 years ago, Reb Ahron moved to Boro Park where he became one of the most respected mispallelim at the Munkatcher Bais Medrash there. He had a chazaka for many years to never miss a tefillas Mincha or Maariv with the minyan of the Munkatcher Rebbe.

The levaya is talking place this morning in front of the Munkatcher Bais Medrash, located at 4706 14th Avenue in Boro Park, Brooklyn.

Yehi zichro boruch.
