It is with great sadness that Matzav.com reports the passing of Rabbi Yosef Weiss zt”l of Lakewood. He was 59 years old.

Rabbi Weiss served as the menahel at Yeshiva Shaagas Aryeh, as well as the principal of the Satmar Cheder of Lakewood. A veteran mechanech, Rabbi Weiss devoted himself to the field of chinuch with great dedication for decades.

Rabbi Weiss was also the author of the popular Visions of Greatness series, published by CIS. Visions of Greatness contains hundreds of inspiring stories that have been enjoyed by thousands.

Rabbi Weiss was ill for an extended period of time and later contracted Covid-19 some months ago and battled valiantly.

The levayah is scheduled to take place at 1:30 p.m. at the parking lot of Lake Terrace Hall off of Oak Street in Lakewood. Kevurah will follow at the bais hachaim off of East Seventh Street in Lakewood.

Yehi zichro boruch.



  1. He was a special yid ! Irreplaceable! Like a father to all his Talmudim ! We are heartbroken ! (Was extremely sick with cancer, Covid may have been the final blow but I don’t think this can be characterized as a Covid death)
