It is with great sadness that Matzav.com reports the passing of Rav Avrohom Meshulem Feivish Hakohein Schwartz zt”l, rov of Khal Kol Aryeh of Brooklyn.
A son of Rav Pinchos Zelig Hakohein Schwartz, Rav Feivish was a descendant of Rav Avrohom Yehudah Hakohein Kohen Schwartz, known by his responsa as the Kol Aryeh, one of the leading Hungarian rabbonim of the nineteenth century who served as rov of Beregszasz, Hungary and in his native town of Mad.
Rav Feivish endured the horrors of the Holocaust, ultimately immigrating to the United States to rebuild his life. He became a talmid of the Divrei Yoel, Rav Yoel Teitelbaum of Satmar, and went on to raise an outstanding mishpacha. His son is Rav Moshe Peretz Schwartz, rov of Bais Medrash Kol Aryeh of Lakewood, NJ.
The levayah is being held now at Bais Medrash Kol Aryeh on Hope Chapel Road in Lakewood, after which the aron will be flown to Eretz Yisroel for kevurah there.
Yehi zichro boruch.
