BDE Rav Moshe Schwab ZT''L

Levaya live feed Matzav-
Harav Moshe Schwab ZT''L
Levaya tommorrow 1 pm in Monsey, at Yeshiva Ohr Someach Kevurah will be in Monsey, NY.
It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Rav Moshe Schwab zt”l, rosh kollel of the Detroit Lakewood Kollel in Oak Park, Michigan.
Rav Moshe was a noted talmid chochom and marbitz Torah, who devoted his life to teaching and spreading Torah. Decades ago, Rav Moshe, along with Rav Shmuel Irons, sparked a remarkable revolution in Detroit by bringing yungeleit of Lakewood’s Beth Medrash Govoah to the city and raising its levels of communal Torah study. Rav Moshe suffered a stroke and was in a week-long coma before passing away today. Rav Schwab was a son of Reb Chaim Tzvi Schwab z”l. 

The levaya will take place tonight, at 8 p.m., at the Kollel of Oak Park, located at 15230 Lincoln in Oak Park, Michigan.
