It is with great sadness that Matzav.com reports the sudden passing of Rav Moshe Tzvi Goldberg zt”l. He was in his 60s.
Rav Moshe was a R”M for many years at Yeshiva Gedolah Zichron Shmayahu of Toronto, which is led by Rav Chaim Mendel Brodsky, and a rebbi at Yeshiva Ohr Chaim of Toronto.
Rav Moshe was born in Chicago, a son of Rav Yitzchok and Betty Goldberg, who were renowned for their Torah and chesed and instilled in their children ahavas haTorah and yiras Shomayim. Rav Moshe learned at Telz Yeshiva.
Rav Moshe was an outstanding talmid chochom and marbitz Torah who spent his life immersed in Torah and avodah, authoring sifrei Bikkurei Moshe.
Rav Moshe was a phenomenal masmid, learning at every available moment, and constantly striving to inspire himself and others towards greater aliyah in ruchniyus.
