Rabbi Dr. Yehuda Cooperman Passes Away

05 Jan 2016

From Arutz Sheva:

Professor Yaacov Katz, the president of Jerusalem College for religious women, known in Hebrew as Michlalah, eulogized Rabbi Dr. Yehuda Cooperman, the founder of the college who passed away at age 87. Rabbi Dr. Cooperman was laid to rest yesterday in the Sanhedria cemetery in Jerusalem.

In an interview with Arutz Sheva Professor Katz described Cooperman as “a very special person. A revolutionary who immigrated to Israel at a young age, and in his 30’s he opened the college in an apartment and a room in the Bayit Ve’gan neighborhood of Jerusalem.

“He brought the vision of an institute for higher Torah learning for women from religious families to life. A place where Torah studies and the fear of Heaven joined together with academic studies of the highest caliber, in the pursuit of a teaching certificate.”
