Rav Moshe Green zt”l


It is with great sadness that Matzav.com reports the passing of Rav Moshe Green zt”l, rosh yeshiva of Yeshivah D’Monsey in Monsey, NY. He was 86 years old.

A son of Rav Yisroel Green, Rav Moshe was a talmid of four of the major yeshivos on the Torah landscape in his youth: Yeshivas Rabbeinu Chaim Berlin, Yeshiva Torah Vodaas, Mirrer Yeshiva, and Bais Medrash Elyon, the first three in Brooklyn and the latter in Monsey. He was greatly influenced by Rav Shraga Feivel Mendlowitz zt”l and the other rabbeim at Torah Vodaas, and then became a very close talmid of Rav Reuven Grozovsky zt”l at Bais Medrash Elyon, where he was a member of an elite chaburah, many of whom went on to become roshei yeshiva and marbitzei Torah.

Rav Moshe, who was recognized for his great diligence, his hasmadah and his tangible yiras SHomayim, would go on to lead the Skverer Yeshiva that opened in New Square and eventually established his own yeshiva, Yeshivah D’Monsey, which catered to chassidishe bochurim.

Rav Green dealt with various ailments over recent years. He rarely left Monsey, or New York at all, particularly since he suffered two strokes. He passed away this morning.

Yehi zichro boruch.
