Tragedy struck Beitar Ilit when Rabbi Aharon Eisenbach, 30-years-old, passed away suddenly, leaving behind a widow and five orphans.
Reb Aharon was born in 5743 in Yerushalayim to Harav Eliyahu Ezriel Eisenbach and his mother, the daughter of Rav Shimshon Yaakobovitz, zt”l, a venerable Lubavitch chassid.
He learned in Talmud Torah Me’ah She’arim and Yeshivas Chayei Moshe in Yerushalayim and Chazon Nachum in Bnei Brak, where he was known as a diligent talmid. He married the daughter of Rav Shraga Bernstein, son of Harav Moshe Bernstein, Rosh Yeshivas Chayei Olam.
This week, on the morning of Lab Ba’omer, when he did not awaken early as was his practice, medical teams were called and tragically, he returned his soul to its Maker, apparently in his sleep.
Stunned family members and many friends and residents of Beitar Ilit took part in the levayah, which set out from Shamgar funeral home in Yerushalayim to Har Hamenuchos.
Hespedim were delivered by the niftar’s grandfather, Harav Moshe Eisenbach; his uncle, Harav Avraham Eisenbach; his brother-in-law Rabbi Chaim Rechtshafer; Harav Mendel Tessler, a friend from Yeshivas Chazon Nachum; and the Dinov-Beitar Rebbe, in whose shul the niftar davened.
