BDE: Rav Tzvi Boruch Babad, z”l

BoroPark24 regrets to inform you of the passing of Rav Tzvi Boruch Babad, z”l, a longtime Boro Park resident who moved to Toms River in recent years. He was 81 years of age. 

The niftar was born in Eretz Yisroel to his father, Rev Oizer Babad, a descendant of great tzaddikim, including the Bnei Yissoschor. 

Tzvi Boruch was one of the chashuvim in the yeshivos of Chevron and Ponovezh, and was exceptionally close to the Rosh Yeshiva, Rav Eliezer Shach. 

He and his brother immigrated to America, and Rav Tzvi Boruch settled in Boro Park where he raised an illustrious Torah family. 

For many years, he davened in the Sfardishe Shul, sitting in the back of the basement, but those who knew him understood that he belonged in mizrach.

“He sat in the back of the Shul,” recalls a longtime mispalel. “But he knew kabboloh, and he was a big talmid chochom, and dignified and prominent personality.” 

Six years ago, he moved to Toms River where he had opened Khal Bnei Yisoschor, which had become a major hub of learning and davening. 

He was diagnosed with an illness about a month ago and was niftar earlier today. 

The Levaya will take place tomorrow at 9:30 a.m. at Khal Bnei Yososchor, 1767 Whitesville Road, Toms River.

Yehi zichro baruch.
