Tefillos for Rav Zundel Kroizer


rav-zundel-kroizerAll are asked to say Tehillim for Rav Zundel Kroizer, who has been hospitalized in serious condition.

Rav Kroizer is one of the tzaddikei hador, who has spent his life immersed in Torah and tefillah away from the limelight. Unknown to many beyond the olam hatorah, Rav Kroizer has long been recognized by the gedolei hador as an Ish Elokim, residing in humble quarters in Yerushalayim.

The name for Tehillim is Rav Zundel ben Toba Faiga.

  1. Can you please verify the name of Rav Zundel shlita’s mother. Every site has a different name and we all need to be mispallel for this great Tzaddik

  2. There is a story that when Hagoan Rav Yaakov ZTVK’L was sick and was in need of a Mishebayrech, however the people could not recall Rav Yakov’s mothers name.

    Hagoan Rav Moshe ZTVK’L, who was at that minyan told the people just say Rav Yaakov, in the Mishebeyrach and Hashem will now who it is.

    We could probably apply the same lesson to our situation, say Rav Zundel (Shlita).

  3. 1) The name is Zundel ben TOBA (not TOVA) Faiga
    2) When making a misheberach you do not put “Rav” in front of the person’s name
    3) When saying Tehillim, you should try to know the name (ploni ben plonis) when you are saying it
    4) When you don’t know the person’s mothers name you say “ploni” ben SARAH (for Sarah Imenu)

  4. don’t use the title Rav; when making a
    Mi Shbeirach, there are no titles (nor is it proper to use HaCohen or HaLevi)
