It is with profound sadness Hamodia reports the passing of Harav Yisroel Yechezkel Plutchok, zt”l, the Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshiva Derech Chaim in Boro Park.

Rav Plutchok was a close talmidof Harav Chaim Pinchos Scheinberg, Zt”l, and opened Yeshiva Derech Chaim with his brother in law, Harav Mordechai Rennert, zt”l, in 1975.

Rav Plutchok was hospitalized recently with coronavirus and was niftar Thursday afternoon.
