The Klal Mourns the Petirah of
Rabbi Reuven Scheiner,zt”l
The entire Jewish world, and in particular the Brooklyn and Torah Vodaath world, mourned the recent petirah of Rabbi Reuven Scheiner, who first came to the yeshivah as a pre-bar mitzvah student more than 75 years ago when the school was still located in Williamsburg. His connection to the makon Torah never ceased. After his marriage, he studied in the kollel at Beis Medrash Elyon and in the early 1960’s was appointed maggid shiur in Mesivta Torah Vodaath where he taught thousands of talmidim for more than a half century. After his retirement he joined the Torah Vodaath kollel and continued to inspire others by his devoted dedication towards learning Torah. May his memory continue to serve as a blessing for his many students and his family that continue in his derecho haTorah.
