TOT regrets to inform you of the Petira of Hagon HaRav Chaim Yisroel Belsky ZATZAL, one of the Roshei Yeshiva of Yeshiva Torah Vodaas in Flatbush, and a leading Posek in the United States.
Rav Belsky is renowned as of the most brilliant Torah minds of our generation, with a grasp of virtually kol haTorah kulah and instant recall and knowledge all across the spectrum. He was 77-years-old.
Rabbi Belsky was diagnosed with a illness just a few months ago, and his condition began to deteriorate.
Jews around the globe as well as in his beloved Yeshiva had been Davening for his Refuah for the past few week as his condition deteriorated.
He was Niftar around 7:30PM on Thursday night.
