Parshat Breishit: Never Satisfied
What, Me Worry?

Rabbi Yoram Abergel, of saintly and blessed memory

Rav Yoram Abergel ztzl
Breslev Israel, Emuna Outreach and the Beams grieve from the loss of an enormous tzaddik, Rabbi Yoram Abergel osb"m, who returned his holy soul to Hashem earlier today on Shabbat afternoon. At the time of this writing (10;30 PM Israel, Saturday night), the funeral procession is about to begin in Netivot, in the south of Israel, where Rabbi Abergel lived.

Rabbi Yoram was the head of the "Rav Pa'alim" Institutions, a huge network of Torah learning all across Israel. He had thousands of students, many of whom he personally brought in to observant Judaism.

He was not only a tremendous scholar and Kabbalist, but he cared tremendously about each human being and did tremendous loving-kindnesses for widows, orphans and the needy. He always had a smile on his face.

This is an irreplaceable  loss for the Jewish People at a difficult time, when we need the merit of our righteous spiritual leaders. Maybe Rabbi Yoram plead in our behalf at the Heavenly throne, and may we soon see Moshiach and the full redemption of our people, amen.
