It is with great sadness that Matzav.com reports the passing of Rav Menachem Mendel Margulies zt”l, rosh yeshiva of Yeshiva Gedolah Torah Temimah.
Rav Margulies was the rosh yeshiva of Yeshiva Gedolah Torah Temimah in Staten Island, NY, which is today located in Staten Island and where the senior maggid shiur is Rav Betzalel Busel.
Rav Margulies was a son of the founding rosh yeshiva of Yeshiva Torah Temimah, Rav Lipa Margulies and, lhbcl”c, Rebbetzin Devorah Margulies a“h.
Rav Margulies spent his life between the koslei bais hamedrash, assisting his father as the segan rosh yeshiva of Yeshiva Torah Temimah in Brooklyn, during which time he delivered a shiur klali regularly at the yeshiva. He later became rosh yeshiva of the Yeshiva Gedolah of the yeshiva.
Rav Margulies was a beloved talmid chochom and always had a kind word for any bochur he encountered. He always spoke gently and carried himself with utmost humility. Whether at the yeshiva, located on Ocean Parkway in Kensington, Brooklyn, or at Camp Silver Lake, the yeshiva‘s camp in Woodridge, NY where his rebbetzin served as the camp secretary for many years, Rav Margulies was always a comforting and guiding influence, while spending the bulk of his day immersed in his seforim.
In addition, Rav Margulies was an inspiring baal tefillah, davening for the amud at Yeshiva Torah Temimah during the Yomim Noraim for decades. His powerful voice and heartfelt tefillos inspired the hundreds who would daven at the yeshiva each year.
Rav Margulies is survived by his father, Rav Lipa Margulies, rosh yeshiva of Yeshiva Torah Temimah; by his wife, Rebbetzin Mindel Margulies, and their wonderful family. He is also survived by his siblings, Rabbi and Mrs. Binyomin Margulies, Rabbi and Mrs. Yisroel Margulies, Rabbi and Mrs. Yisroel Benedikt, Rabbi and Mrs. Shmuel Shlesinger, and Rabbi and Mrs. Mayer Pinkovics.
