Rav Dovid Rub, zt"l
by Betzalel Kahn

Led by roshei yeshivos and rabbonim Jerusalemites took part in the levaya of Rav Dovid Rub, an outstanding avreich who was plucked away at the age of 35 following a difficult illness.

The deceased was born on Tu BeShevat 5729 (1969) to R' Yaakov and Esther Rub, known in Bnei Brak for their many acts of chessed. He was educated at Talmud Torah R' Akiva Merkaz in Bnei Brak. When he became bar mitzvah he went to study at Yeshivas Itri Letzei'irim and later went on to Yeshivas Ateres Yisroel.

After starting a home with his wife, ylct"a, the daughter of HaRav Avrohom Yitzchok Tucker author of Bikkurei Oretz, he continued rising in Torah and yir'oh with total dedication to avodas Hashem, foregoing worldly pleasures.

Even during the past year after his illness was diagnosed he continued his Torah studies, hiding the illness from those around him to avoid worrying and troubling them. Never was a complaint heard from his lips throughout the period of his illness. Instead he continued along his path of Torah and avodoh, accepting yissurim with love and giving all of his family members strength through his great bitochon in Hashem.

His soul departed on Thursday night, 20 Tammuz, surrounded by an ample minyan of talmidei chachomim from among his friends and relatives reciting Shema Yisroel.

The first of the maspidim was his father-in-law, HaRav Tucker, followed by HaRav Noach Heisler, the moro d'asro of Sanhedria Murchevet, where the deceased lived. Eulogies were also given by his uncle, HaRav Nachman Tucker, one of the roshei yeshiva at Yeshivas Chevron, HaRav Reuven Kornreich, rov of Tel Tzion, HaRav Dovid Cohen, rosh yeshiva of Yeshivas Chevron, HaRav Chaim Walkin, menahel ruchani at Yeshivas Ateres Yisroel, HaRav Tzvi Tzvieli, rov of Beis Medrash Tze'irei Agudas Yisroel on Rechov Sokolov in Bnei Brak, who knew the deceased since his childhood, and HaRav Menachem Tucker, the deceased's brother-in-law.

After the burial at Har Hamenuchot Cemetery his rosh kollel and the rov of Kehillas Shaarei Tevunoh in Ramot Aleph, HaRav Yisroel Goelman, delivered parting words in the name of the kollel members.

Rav Dovid Rub, z"l, is survived by his parents, his wife and four young daughters ages two to seven.
