It is with great sadness that Matzav.com reports the passing of Reb Pinchus Gershon (PG) Waxman z”l of Lakewood.
Reb Pinchus grew up in Monsey, NY and was a talmid of Yeshiva of Staten Island, where he learned under Rav Moshe Feinstein.
Reb Pinchus resided in Lakewood, where he established a successful real estate company, Waxman Realty, but his primary occupation was always limud haTorah. Blessed with a bright mind and the power of chiddush, Reb Pinchus was a veritable treasure trove of original Torah thoughts on numerous topics. Many of Reb Pinchus’ chiddushim were published in his Palgei Mayim pamphlets and in columns that appeared in Yated Ne’eman and other publications.
Reb Pinchus’ ahavas haTorah was extraordinary, and he enjoyed nothing more than learning Torah and sharing a good vort.
In addition, Reb Pinchus was astute and sagacious, and was the address for advice and counsel for many people. He had a caring heart and performed numerous chassodim, quietly and without fanfare.
His passing is a tremendous blow to the Lakewood community and all who were zocheh to know Reb Pinchus.
He is survived by his wife, Mrs. Zeldy Waxman, and their wonderful family of children and grandchildren.
Yehi zichro boruch.
