Finally, Yeshiva University’s website is acknowledging the passing of R. Michael Katz and that they will be holding a memorial service for his sheloshim.
- A shloshim memorial for Rabbi Michael Katz will take place on Thursday, March 10 at 11 am in the Harry Fischel Beit Midrash in Zysman Hall. Rabbi Katz served with rare distinction as a Rosh Yeshiva of Rabbi Issac Elchanan Theological Seminary for nearly six decades and was the beloved rebbe of thousands of talmidim.
Unfortunately I won’t be able to attend, but those who could make it should put in the effort to do so. Even if you never met him, you’ll probably be inspired by YU’s longime hidden gem (if YU does it right).
Any first-hand accounts would be appreciated.
We miss you. Come home.
