It is with great sadness that Matzav.com reports the passing of R’ Chaim Aryeh Mermelstein z”l.
R’ Chaim Aryeh, who resided in Chicago, was a noted machzik Torah, who gave of himself in numerous ways to assist mosdos haTorah as well as individuals.
R’ Chaim Aryeh merited raising a wonderful mishpacha, from whom he derived tremendous nachas. His son, Rav Yosef Mermelstein, is the venerated rosh yeshiva of Yeshivas Novominsk in Boro Park.
R’ Chaim Aryeh is survived by his wife, Mrs. Rechel Mermelstein, and his sons, Rav Yosef and R’ Moshe, who are sitting shivah at 7141 N. Kedzie Avenue, between Touhy Avenue and W. Estes Avenue in Chicago. Rav Yosef will return to New York on Tuesday to sit shivah at at 1765 53rd Street in Boro Park and then get up on Wednesday morning.
