It is with great sadness that Matzav.com reports the petirah of Rav Moishe Dovid Labkovsky zt”l. He was in his upper 50s.

Rav Moishe Dovid passed away on Shabbos from a sudden heart attack. He was in Virginia at the time, visiting his son-in-law and daughter, who were vacationing there.

Rav Moishe Dovid was an outstanding talmid chochom and medakdeik b’mitzvos, who devoted his life to limud haTorah, avodas Hashem, and spreading Torah and dikduk b’mitzvos and proper hashkafah to other Yidden. He lived a life that was kulo Torah, a value that he passed on to his wonderful children.

Rav Moishe Dovid maintained a very close kesher with Rav Yosef Rosenblum zt”l, rosh yeshiva of Yeshiva Shaarei Yosher, and consulted with him on many matters, while adhering to Rav Rosenblum’s hashkafah and direction with tremendous bittul and dedication.

Rav Moishe Dovid resided on 78th Street in Bensonhurst, where he was a prominent and beloved member of the Yeshiva Bais Hatalmud community. His sudden petirah has plunged his family, many friends and admirers into mourning.

Rav Moishe Dovid’s wife is a daughter of Rav Shmuel Yitzchok Greenberg zt”l, an alter Mirrer.

Rav Moshe Dovid leaves behind his wife and 11 children, two sons and nine daughters.

The levayah is tentatively scheduled for 7:30 p.m. today at Yeshiva Bais Hatalmud, located at 2127 82nd Street in Brooklyn, NY.

Yehi zichro boruch.

  1. A true tragedy. Such a great man who never compromised on his Torah values. He was a stronghold of hashkafa within the American society. May his family have a nechoma, and may we learn from his incredible mehalech hachaim.

  2. The nifter ztl was a devoted shliach of the rosh yeshiva harav yosef rosenblum zatzal . 100% trusted to do whatever was needed with no personal interest, therefore gaining the admiration of the rosh yeshiva for his ehrlichkeit. a true ben torah and genuine good person a tremendous loss. I personally heard unbelievable praises from thr rosh yeshiva who was not a person to exaggerate whatsoever. More than trust ,the rosh yeshiva had tremendous hakaras hatov to the nifter, for all he did for him and the klal. May the family find nechoma in his torah and maasim tovim ,and may his great zechusim be malitz yosher for his mishpacha . They should have no more tzar and many many simchos, and follow in his choshuva footsteps

  3. A tremendous yarei shomayim, he was at the right hand of Harav Yosef Rosenblum ztl for many years, who trusted him tremendously to carry out important missions for Klal Yisrael b’chlal uv’frat. He and his wonderful wife tblt raised their amazing family with genuine simchas hachaim, pride in their Yiddishkeit, simcha shel mitzvah. Their home- filled with happiness, with music, with Ahavas Hatorah, Ahavas Yisrael. He loved doing mitzvos- choosing arbaah minim, baking matzah, every mitzvah was so precious to him. He was so pleasant, so patien, so well-spoken, with a good word for everyone. Torah was uppermost, he lived it, and his family absorbed it and continues to live it. Every child a gem. Mi yiten lanu temuraso?

  4. What a terrible Shocking loss! For 59 years his constant smile was like a bright light that lit up peoples lives, and his sweet warm words, soothed many hearts. Ooy! how he’s going to be missed.
    A book wouldn’t be long enough to describe R’ Moshe Dovid’s Gadlus, He was niftar shabbas by mincha like tzadikim, and during krias hatorah which he was very medakdek in.
    ימחה ה’ דמעה מעל כל פנים

  5. Just want every one to know his MIDOS TOVOS and CHESED were spectacular. I really cant believe this.
    His constant dveykus bhashem with Emuna and Bitachon were one of a kind. He was also extremely medakdek in all lemitzvos, while he especially excelled in Kibud Av Vaem.
    He had very special parents.
    I zoche to know his father too who was also a very special man and was always besimcha and had a good word for everyone.
