Rabbi Yitzchok Steinberg’s premature passing on April 2 after contracting COVID-19 rocked his Borough Park community, where he was a beloved communal figure for more than 30 years.

For three decades, the charismatic teacher captivated his students at Yeshiva Torah Temimah, inspiring children to pray enthusiastically. He brought creativity and dedication in his role as director of the school’s youth minyan.

Outside of the classroom, Steinberg was a regular congregant at the Tenke Bais Midrash and the devoted father of a large family.

He leaves behind a wife and 10 children, together with a devastated community.
