BDE: R’ Noach Tzvi Ullman, z”l
By: Boropark24 staff
We are saddened to inform you of the passing of R’ Noach Tzvi (Henry) Ullman, z”l. He was in his eighties, and a lifelong Boro Park resident.
He was born to his father, Rav Moshe Naftoli Ullman—a rov in the Chevra Shas of Shomrei Emunah on Fourteenth Avenue—who brought his family to Boro Park in 1939. The family hailed from generations of Rabbonim in Belgium, and Hungary, and traced their roots to talmidim and successors of the Chasam Sofer.
Noach Tzvi was named for his grandfather, the first rov of the Machzikei Hadas Kehillah in Antwerp and the author of seforim.
In his youth, he was from the group of young men who formed the Zeirei Agudas Yisroel minyan on Sixteenth Avenue, and was especially close to their chosen rov, Rav Yisroel Perkovsky, zt”l. He remained a lifelong member of the shul, serving as its ba’al korei for decades.
R’ Noach Tzvi was close to many gedolim, and a repository of stories and anecdotes about them, and the illustrious gedolim that they knew. Being an extremely exact person, one always knew that the stories that he told with his unique ‘geshmak’ were accurate and could be relied upon.
He leaves behind a beautiful Torah family, and a legacy of a child of Boro Park from the 1930’s who valiantly kept alive the traditions of his ancestors.
Watch Live the Levya R’ Noach Tzvi Ullman, z”l
