It is with great sadness that Matzav.com reports the passing of Rav Shimon Yehuda Leib Mandel zt”l, R”M at Yeshiva of Staten Island.
Rav Mandel served as a rebbi at Yeshiva of Staten Island for over 30 years, teaching, guiding and inspiring talmidim. Rav Mandel spent his life between the walls of the bais medrash, immersed in limud haTorah and being marbitz Torah with palpable ahavas haTorah.
His ahavas Yisroel and ahavas Hashem made a profound impact on his talmidim, and his ever-present smile and good cheer offered chizuk to anyone he encountered.
The levayah will be held today at 10:15 a.m. at Yeshiva of Staten Island, located at 1870 Drumgoole Road, Staten Island, NY. The levayah will then continue at the Congregation Sons of Israel Holocaust Memorial Chapel, located at 613 Ramsey Street in Lakewood, NJ, followed by kevurah in the adjacent bais hachaim.
Yehi zichro boruch.
