It is with great sadness that Matzav.com reports the petirah of Rabbi Yaakov Levitz z”l.

Rabbi Levitz contracted Covid-19 and had been hospitalized in critical condition.

Rabbi Levitz was renowned as the owner of Im Hasefer, distributing seforim to retailers for over three decades.

Rabbi Levitz was not just a seforim expert. A talmid chochom in his own right, he exuded ahavas haTorah and ahavas Yisroel and displayed a remarkable passion for his profession.

On average, Rabbi Levitz would distribute several new seforim every single week, providing stores with approximately 150 new seforim each year.

Rabbi Levitz became the conduit between American and Israeli bnei Torah and talmidei chachomim, ensuring that their publications and seforim reached the masses.

Rabbi Levitz is survived by his wife and wonderful father, including his sons, R’ Binyamin Levitz, R’ Uriel Levitz, R’ Chaim Levitz, and R’ Yitzchok Levitz.

The levayah will take place today at 2 p.m. at at the Congregation Sons of Israel Holocaust Memorial Chapel, located at 613 Ramsey Street, in Lakewood NJ. The aron will then be flown to Eretz Yisroel for kevurah there.

Yehi zichro boruch.
