Rav Eliezer Shlomo Schick ZT"L
|Found on Wikipedia Yiddish|
Rav Eliezer Shlomo Schick, also known as the Tzaddik of Yavne'el and the מוהרא"ש, had passed away last night. (See Kikar, YWN, Lazer Beams)
He was very close to Rav Ovadia ZT"L and could often be seen sitting next to him in his Shiurim, such as this rather famous one. He even started a "Breslov for Shas" organization.
Until he passed, he was thought of by his followers as a strong candidate for the Mashiah that Rav Kaduri said he met.
A little less than a year ago, he stated, "My Ketz is getting closer."
May he be a Melitz Yosher for us all.
