Rabbi Aaron Stefansky z”l

Matzav.com
It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Rabbi Aaron Stefansky z”l. He was in his fifties.

Reb Aaron was a son of Rav and Rebbetzin Eliezer Stenfansky. His father, Rav Leizer, is a mashgiach at Beth Medrash Govoah in Lakewood, NJ.

Reb Aaron, a resident of Lakewood, NJ, was a noted machzik Torah, who supported numerous mekomos haTorah and mosdos hachinuch with great generosity.

His magnanimous nature connected him with many worthy causes, and Reb Aaron was always available to help and assist those in need, both on an individual level and at the klal level.

With R' AY Soloveichick

Likewise, the Stefansky home is a bais vaad lachachomim, thanks to the chesed of Reb Aaron and his wife, for whom every Torah cause was important.

Reb Aaron maintained an extremely close relationship with his rebbi, Rav Avrohom Yehoshua Soloveitchik, Rosh Yeshivas Brisk in Yerushalayim, and greatly assisted him in many ways, both public and private.

Reb Aaron was struck by illness, which ravaged him, but did not sap his spirit, which remained vibrant as he dealt with the difficult machlah that ultimately claimed his life.

Reb Aaron is survived by his parents, Rav Eliezer and Sora Stefansky; his devoted wife, Mrs. Chani Stefansky; their nine children; his siblings; as well as numerous relatives, friends and acquaintances mourning the loss of this most special person.

The Levaya is scheduled to take place tomorrow at 5:30 pm at the Bendheim Bais Medrash at Beth Medrash Govoah in Lakewood, NJ. Yoshon BM

    A special person sadly niftar at the young age of 51-the chapter in Tehillim of TESHUVA (Repentance)

    YOU decide in your own gift from Hashem of free-will if you are ready as a nation to end this horrific time of non stop tragedies in k lal Yisroel
    by doing TESHUVA.

    There's no one to blame but ourselves for bringing this upon us R"L

    May his neshama have an aliyah and may everyone have a wonderful Yom Tov
