Rabbi Yisroel Menachem Rosenberg passed away before Passover as a result of complications due to COVID-19.

He was a key pillar of the “Swan Lake” synagogue in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn, N.Y.

Before he moved to Brooklyn around 30 years ago, he was the gabbai and right-hand man for the Kretshnif Rebbe in Rehovot.

His family said he never had a driver’s license; he would ride his bike through all weather conditions to minyan and to shiurim.

He leaves behind his wife and their 14 children, eight of them unmarried.
