BDE: Rav Simcha Hakohen Kook ZT”L


It’s with great sadness that 5TC informs the community of the passing of HaGaon HaRav Simcha HaKohen Kook, the chief Rav of Rechovot and the historic Churva Shul in the Old City of Yerushalayim. He was niftar on Tuesday at age 92.

HaRav Kook was hospitalized for several days in Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem for a lung infection that caused difficulties in his breathing. Klal Yisrael has lost another Gadol, Yihi Zichro Baruch.

הַמָּקוֹם יְנַחֵם אֶתְכֶם בְּתוֹךְ שְׁאָר אֲבֵלֵי צִיּוֹן וִירוּשָׁלַיִם

Levaya details to follow.
