Reb Berish Scharfer z”l


candleIt is with great sadness that we report the passing of Reb Berish Scharfer z”l, longtime resident of Monsey and mispallel of Bais Medrosh Elyon.

Reb Berish grew up in the Monsey community and was a talmid of Rav Levi Krupenia zt”l in the Kamenitz Yeshiva in Woodridge, New York. After his marriage to his wife Etti, nee Wiesner, he spent several years in the kollel in Woodridge and subsequently in the kollel at Bais Medrosh Elyon, where he forged a very close relationship with the rosh yeshiva, Rav Don Ungarischer zt”l.

Reb Berish was well-recognized for his ehrlichkeit and honesty in every aspect of his life and was well-respected for it in the diamond industry.

He is survived by his wife Etti, and his many children and grandchildren, who are all ehrliche bnei Torah.

The levaya will take place today at Bais Medrosh Elyon in Monsey at 1 p.m. Shivah will take place at his home in Monsey, New York.

Yehi zichro boruch.
