It is with great sadness that Matzav.com reports the passing of Rav Nochum Eisenstein zt”l, longtime rov of the Forest Park Shul, Tiferes Yosef, in Lakewood, NJ. He was 75 years old.
Rav Eisenstein was a noted talmid chochom and marbitz Torah, whose leadership and ahavas haTorah inspired many people during his lifetime.
A devoted talmid of Rav Nosson Wachtfogel zt”l, mashgiach of Beth Medrash Govoha, Rav Eisenstein released the shmuessen of Rav Nosson in the popular Kovetz Sichos.
Rav Eisenstein was a boki in many areas of Torah, and had a grasp of yedios in some of the lesser-studied areas, such as zemiros Shabbos, on which he released a sefer that is acclaimed for its insights.
For many years, Rav Eisenstein’s divrei Torah in English were published as a column in the American Yated Ne’eman.
For the last half decade, Rav Eisenstein battled illness. His passing today has plunged his mispallelim in Forest Park and the great Torah community into mourning.
Rav Eisenstein is survived by his rebbetzin, Mrs. Naomi Eisenstein, and their wonderful family.
The levayah will be held tomorrow, Erev Shabbos, at Bais Medrash Tiferes Yosef of Forest Park, located at 2 Forest Park Circle in Lakewood, NJ, at 10 a.m. Kevurah will follow at the East 7th Street Bais Hachaim in Lakewood.
Yehi zichro boruch.
