It is with great sadness that Matzav.com reports the petirah of the Chief Rabbi of Morocco, R’ Aharon Monsonego zt”l.
R’ Ahron was the head of the Rabbinical Court in Morocco and his father served before him as the Rabbi of Fes. Monsonego left Morocco for Israel four years ago to live near his children due to his age and poor health.
The Rav’s condition deteriorated on Monday and he was taken to Shaarei Tzedek hospital, where he was nifter the following day. R’ Ahron was 90-years-old.
