BDE: Rav Leibel Katz zt"l

Boro Park - We are saddened to inform of the petira of Rav Leibel Katz, a marbitz Torah and posek for decades, who in recent weeks battled the coronavirus. He was in his 70s.

Rav Leibel had a shul, Zichron Yosef, and produced a popular sefer, Ohel Aryeh on taharas hamishpacha. For decades he had a yeshiva, Chasdei Torah, which in its prime had an enrollment of hundreds of boys.

Rav Katz was a popular speaker and lecturer. His Shabbos Hagadol drasha used to be given in the Bais Yaakov of Boro Park building and attracted nearly a thousand men and women.

Aryeh Leib Katz was born in New York and studied in Torah Vodaath, under Rav Yaakov Kamenetzky zt"l.

Yehi zichro boruch.
