It Just Got Darker - BD"E

24 Kislev 5778
Erev Hanukah

Our Sages equated the Greek exile to darkness. The light of Hanukah came to dispel the darkness, at the darkest time of the year (longest nights) and the darkest part of the month (no moon at night). It just got even darker with the passing of one more Torah luminary.
BORUCH DAYAN HA’EMMES: THE GADOL HADOR, MARAN HAGAON HARAV SHTEINMAN ZATZAL
Just moments ago, the terrible news arrived of the Petira of the Gadol Hador, the leader of Klal Yisroel, Maran HaGaon HaRav Aharon Yehuda Leib Shteinman ZATZAL, at the age of 104.
... he was taken from us at just before 8:00AM IL.
...The levaya for HaGaon HaRav Aharon Yehuda Leib Shteinman ZT”L will begin in Bnei Brak at noon. Egged has already announced it is stepping up bus service to Bnei Brak on the 402 line.
May HKB"H give comfort to his children by revealing for us the light of Mashiach without any further delay.

"The levaya will begin from 5 Chazon Ish Street, Maran’s home. The kvura will be in the Ponevezh Cemetery."

BD”E Thank you Devash for posting this. I just opened my computer and saw the sad news. He was frail and really not feeling well; but Hashem gave him some time to prepare to meet HIM.
