Thousands Attend Levaya of Rav Dovid Soloveitchik, Z’TL

Levaya of Hagaon HaRav Meshulam Dovid Halevi Soloveitchik ZATZAL, Rosh Yeshivas Brisk. He was 99.

Thousands of people joined the levaya at 11 a.m. on Sunday morning, which began from the niftar’s home on 17 Eli HaCohen Street and passed by the nearby Yeshivas Brisk on the way to Har Hamenuchos, where he will be buried next to his father, z’tl.

It was announced at the beginning of the levaya that according to the wishes of the niftar, z’tl, his oldest son, HaRav Yitzchak Zeev, the son-in-law of HaGaon HaRav Baruch Dov Povarsky, will take his position as Rosh Yeshivas Brisk.

Rabbi Meshulam Dovid Soloveitchik is the son of Rabbi Yitzchok Zev Soloveitchik, the 'Rabbi of Brisk,' and the grandson of Rabbi Chaim of Brisk, the originator of the 'Brisker method' of studying Talmud.
