Hamodia is saddened to report the passing of Reb Yitzchak Warman, z”l.

Reb Yitzchak, a descendant of Rav Eisikle of Zidechoiv, zy”a, and Harav Yaakov of Lisa, (mechaber of Chavas Daas, Nesivos Hamishpat, and other seforim), was born in Tzfas in 5689/1929. Reb Yitzchak and his parents miraculously survived WWII in France, and he came to the United States in 1947.

After learning in Yeshiva Torah Vodaas and Yeshiva Ner Yisrael, he married Sheindel (Jeanne) née Mark, in 1958.

In 1979, they opened Women’s League (Nshei Ahavas Chessed), which administered group homes for developmentally disabled adults in a community setting. This organization was one of the first to house special needs adults in group homes, and the Warmans were dedicated with heart and soul to provide the best care for the adults under their care.

In 1987, Reb Yitzchak left his position as a corporate accountant and assumed the position as comptroller of Women’s League, where he served for nearly 3 decades.

He was renowned for his passion for chessed and his limud haTorah. After a debilitating injury some 5 years ago, Reb Yitzchak retired from his job, and returned to learning for the better part of his day.

Reb Yitzchak is survived by his wife, Mrs. Sheindel (Jeanne) Warman; his sons, Rabbi Moshe Warman, Rabbi Avner Warman, Reb Asher Warman, Rabbi Yosef Warman, and Reb Yissochor Dov Warman; and his daughters, Mrs. Yocheved Lowenthal, Mrs. Malky Schechter, Mrs. Esty Kushner, and Mrs. Yaly Klein.
