Sefer Torah in Memory of HaRav Arye Leib Berenbaum zt'l to Nachlas Dovid Yeshiva

by Yated Ne'eman Staff

A hachnosas sefer Torah celebration was held in memory of HaRav Arye Leib Berenbaum, zt"l in the Nachlas Dovid yeshiva last week in Petach Tikvah.

The writing of the sefer Torah began at the end of the shiva week for R' Leib more than three years ago. HaRav Berenbaum had been a ram in Nachlas Dovid during his final years, and had a profound spiritual impact on the yeshiva students. The first letter was written by his illustrious father, HaRav Refoel Shmuel Berenbaum, rosh yeshiva of the Mirrer Yeshiva in the United States.

The writing of the first letter took place in the home of R' Leib zt"l, in the presence of HaRav Boruch Shimon Solomon and a minyan of talmidei chachomim who had been close to the niftar. They related how, at the end of the shiva week, HaRav Refoel Shmuel rose from his bereavement and immediately immersed himself in the important sugyos of Bava Kama with vigor.

The students of Nachlas Dovid, as well as former students and friends of the niftar from all over the country, made special efforts to oversee the writing of a sefer Torah mehudar, regarding it as a great zechus to share this mitzvah.

Last week's hachnosas sefer Torah ceremony began with the writing of the last letters in Rebbetzin Berenbaum's Bnei Brak home. The festive procession then continued to the home of the Chief Rabbi of Petach Tikvah, HaRav Boruch Shimon Solomon and then to Nachlas Dovid, where the sefer Torah was ushered into the aron kodesh amidst fervent singing and dancing.
