OU Mourns Passing of HaRav Shteinman Z”tl

December 12, 2017

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.
