It is with great sadness that Matzav.com reports the passing of Rabbi Dr. Shlomo Sprecher z”l of Flatbush.
A son of R’ Pesach Moshe Sprecher, R’ Shlomo was a physician by profession, but he was an outstanding talmid chochom and maggid shiur who made Torah his true occupation.
R’ Shlomo was a boki in halacha and knowledgeable in so many sugyos and inyanim, with a particular interest in the history of science and halachic ramifications. He delivered hundreds of shiurim and authored dozens of articles on a wide range of Torah topics.
R’ Shlomo was a friend to so many people, at the Sasreiginer Shul in Flatbush where he was a maggid shiur and elsewhere. Whoever met him was treated to a chiddush, a good vort, a halachic observation, or just a kind word. R’ Shlomo was a mayan hamisgabeir, a wellspring of knowledge and insight. His passing leaves a gaping void in the hearts of all who knew him.
The levaya will take place tomorrow at 10 a.m. at Shomrei Hadas Chapels, located at 39th Street and 14th Avenue in Boro Park, Brooklyn.
R’ Shlomo’s passing comes just days after the petirah of another Flatbush doctor who was also an outstanding ben aliyah and adam choshuv, R’ Mendy Friedman. רחמיך תעוררי כי לקינו בכפלים.
Yehi zichro boruch.
