We at the Orthodox Union join the rest of the Jewish people in mourning the loss of Harav Aharon Leib Shteinman zt’l.
Rav Shteinman zt’l was not only a world leading Torah scholar, he was as guiding force impacting the lives of untold numbers of Jews in Israel and around the world.
We have lost a leader who was a paragon of humility, simplicity, and passion for Torah and his inspiration will live long beyond his years.
Yehi Zichro Baruch.
