BDE: Rav Avrohom Burech Winkler, z”l
We are saddened to inform you of the passing of Rav Avrohom Burech
Winkler, a tremendous talmid chochom who dedicated his life to Torah,
longtime Boro Park resident. He was 74.
The niftar was born in Yerushalayim to his father, the legendary tzaddik and ga’on, Rav Moshe Mendl Winkler, zt”l, who was one of the confidants of the Shefa Chaim of Klausenberg, zt”l.
He learned in the Klausenberger yeshiva in Kiryat Sanz, where he developed into a great talmid chochom. A talented writer, he had a great hand in committing to writing the Torah of the Klausenberger Rebbe, and later, ybl”ch, the psakim of Rav Gavriel Zinner, shlit”a.
He had a close relationship with the Lubavitcher Rebbe, zt”l, and spoke at the siyum haRambam in 770. He also was very close with the current Klausenberger Rebbe, and was privileged to be at one seder each year. In addition, a friend from his youth in Yerushalayim was the current Rachmastrivker Rebbe.
The niftar made his regular makom tefillah at the Beitcher Beis Medrash—and his entire life surrounded Torah and tefillah.
He leaves behind a beautiful Torah family.
The levaya will take place at the Beitcher Beis Medrash on 45th Street and 12th Avenue at 4:45, and kevurah will be in Monsey.
