Tefillos for Rav Matisyahu Salomon


rav Matisyahu SalomonAll are asked to say Tehillim for Rav Matisyahu Salomon, mashgiach of Beth Medrash Govoha in Lakewood, NJ, who was taken to the hospital today. 

Rav Salomon served for 30 years as mashgiach ruchani and senior mashgiach of Gateshead Yeshiva, which was initially led by Rav Moshe Schwab. In 1998, Rav Salomon moved to Lakewood and assumed the position of mashgiach at America’s largest yeshiva, Beth Medrash Govoha.

The mashgiach and his wife, Rebbetzin Miriam, have been supremely devoted to the larger American Olam Hatorah since their arrival on these shores some 17 years ago, making themselves available to one and all for guidance and chizuk.

May the mashgiach have a refuah sheleimah.

The name for Tehillim is Matisyahu Chaim ben Ettil.

  1. anyone ready to join together for a day of teshuva, kinnus & taanis?

    anyone ready to return to Hashem so we can save this great tzaddik’s life & not need him to be a korban for klal yisroel C”V. The RAMCHAL in Sefer Derech Hashem quotes, when klal yisroel is in a state of Sinning R”L, suffering & pain may be imposed upon a tzaddik as an atonement for his entire generation.

    May he have a refuah shleima very soon

  2. Rav Matisyohu shlit”o,may he have a r”sh bekoroiv,joined the hanholloh of Gateshead yeshiva in 1968 after the petiroh of the Menahel,Rav Chizkiyohu Eliezer Kahan zt”l,the Nachalas Eliezer.At the time the yeshiva was led by the Rosh Yeshiva Rav Leib Gurwicz zt”l…Rav Moishe Schwab was the mashgiach a long time already and Rav Matisyohu was taken on as his assistant as the yeshiva was growing and an additional mashgiach was rquired,plus another member of the Hanholoh was needed to give musser schmuzen in the Menahels place.

  3. ” anyone ready to return to Hashem so we can save this great tzaddik’s life & not need him to be a korban for klal yisroel C”V”

    To the brave “Anonymous” poster who always responds to every danger and tragedy with these smarmy, condescending rants about teshuva:

    Please drop the superior attitude and if you must post, just write something like, “Rabbosai, please join me in doing teshuva and taking on a small takana”.

    If that’s really your point, it’ll be much more effective; if not, just quietly do your own teshuva.

  4. Please correct post #4 as being from “Phil” instead of from “Anonymous”. Sorry for the trouble and please don’t post this as a comment. Thanks!

  5. Already a few years before 1998, Rav Salomon, Sh’lita, was brought to Beth Medrash Gevoha in Lakewood by the former Mashgiach of B.M.G., L’Havdil Bein HaChaim L’HaChaim, Rav Nosson Meir Wachtfogel, ZT’L, who set him to be his successor. So when Rav Wachtfogel was Niftar in 1998 [on 2 Kislev (the same day as the Yortzheit of the founding Rosh Yeshiva of B.M.G., Rav Aharon Kotler, ZT’L)], Yibodel L’Chaim Tovim V’Aruchim, Rav Salomon was already set as the next Mashgiach. t
