It is with great sadness that we report the sudden passing of Rabbi Chizkiyahu Yosef Leibowitz zt”l of Yerushalayim at the age of 40. Rabbi Leibowitz was a son of Rav Chaim Shlomo Leibowitz, rosh yeshiva of the yeshivos of Ponovezh and Kamenitz, and a great-grandson of Rav Boruch Ber Leibowitz zt”l. He was a son-in-law of Rav Yosef Zimbal, rov of West Gate in Lakewood.
Rabbi Leibowitz was a phenomenal talmid chochom who spent his days fully immersed in limud haTorah.
Rabbi Leibowitz is survived by his wife and six children.
The levaya was held at Yeshivas Mir-Yerushalayim and kevurah took place on Har Hamenuchos.
Yehi zichro boruch.
