Rabbi Moshe Wosner battled COVID-19 in the hospital for several weeks until his passing on May 22.

Wosner was born in Israel to Shmuel and Rivka Wosner into a life of Torah study and rabbinic leadership.

His father, Rabbi Shmuel Wosner, was one of the most prominent halachic authorities of his day—a decisor of Jewish law in Bnei Brak, Israel. A prolific author, he was relied on by hundreds of thousands for his legal expertise.

Moshe Wosner was a clever and precocious child. Mourners recall how his venerated father used to enjoy debating and talking with him. Wosner took that brilliance into his adulthood and studies.

He eventually left the Jewish state for the United States, settling in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn, N.Y.

He is survived by his son, Avrohom Tzvi Wosner of the Satmar community in Monsey, N.Y., as well as five brothers.
