Reb Chaim Yosef Halevi Goldberg, born in America in Kislev 5709/1948, learned in Eretz Yisrael, and after he married settled in Yerushalayim.
With his petirah, Yerushalayim loses a noble character; a noted talmid chacham and masmid, who dedicated his life to Torah as well as to the other two pillars the world stands on: avodah and gemilus chasadim.
Rabbi Goldberg was the patron of thousands of widows, orphans, broken families, geiri tzedek, families of talmidei chachamim, as well many poor individuals; all knew that Rabbi Goldberg would be of assistance.
He was renowned for his myriad acts of chessed; he would somehow find out about any tragedy or family in need and would manage to bring them whatever they needed. It is assumed that he gave out millions of shekels in tzedakah over the years. Reb Chaim would also supply electric appliances to those in need. read more at Hamodia.com
