Rav Gurwicz required treatment at the hospital for a cellulitis-related complication. He is now at home recuperating.
Rav Gurwicz just recently sustained the passing of his daughter, Rebbetzin Gittel Kaplan a”h, wife of Rav Nissan Kaplan, rosh yeshiva of Yeshiva Daas Aharon in Yerushalayim.
Rav Gurwicz, who has been rosh yeshiva in Gateshead since 1983, is the second son of Rav Leib Gurwicz, the previous Gateshead rosh yeshivah. He is a grandson of Rav Elyah Lopian and a son-in-law of Rav Elyah’s son, Rav Leib Lopian. Through Rav Leib’s mother, Rav Gurwicz is a descendant of the Vilna Gaon. [His father, Rav Leib, was born Aryeh Zev Kushelevsky, but later, due to political tensions between Lithuania and Poland, he was forced to choose a new surname and selected his mother’s maiden name, Gurwicz, which he kept for the rest of his life.]
Rav Gurwicz is the author of the multi-volume Anfei Erez on sugyos haShas, Anfei Erez al haTorah, and other seforim.
