Hesped Mar

Rav Seichel, the Rosh Yeshivah of Torah and Common Sense, and author of the most important commentary on Cheilek Hamishi of the Shulchan Aruch, was finally Niftar.

Following the passings of R Mosheh Feinstein, R YD Soloveichik, R SZ Auerbach, and finally Hacham Ovadyah Yosef, Aleihem Hashalom, he had been getting progressively more infirm. The impending Passover season was the Makkeh B'Patish, especially when heard that Zli had been forbidden throughout Hodesh Nissan.

His passing will probably not be noted much, because those that frequently consulted him were all gone already, and frankly he's largely been ignored for quite a while. Nevertheless, some throwbacks will nostalgically long for the good old days when his influence in Jewish Life was paramount

Y'hee Zichro Baruch!

Kol Tuv,
