The Olam Hatorah was stunned to hear about the petira Tuesday of Hagaon Harav Mordechai Krauss, zt”l, who served for over thirty years as Rosh Hayeshiva of Yeshivas Ohr Hachaim in Queens. Harav Krauss was a renowned gadol b’Torah and was a very close talmid of Rav Binyamin Paler, zt”l and Harav Berel Soloveitchik, zt”l.

The levaya will take place at at 10 AM Wednesday at Yeshivas Ohr Hachaim, located at 141-61 71st Ave.

A fuller tribute will, im yirtzeh Hashem, be forthcoming.
