I am saddened beyond words to hear the passing of this great man. No one person could ever take his place, which means we all must galvanize into a movement to produce transparency in Big Pharma, among doctors, and in the government. No one take ever take his place,but we can all take up his banner.
May his family be comforted with all the mourners of Zion and Yerushalayim.

June 30, 2022 4:33 pm

Moshiach now!

June 30, 2022 4:34 pm

May his neshoma have an Aliya. He was a brave man who stood up to powers of pharmaceutical and government bodies who want to take away our free will on medical decisions. He has been proven righ by studies on the ineffectiveness of the vaccines which are now also shown to lower sperm counts and cause heart issues even in young patients.

June 30, 2022 4:37 pm

No words. He has many zechusim. An outstanding person. A healer and one who saved many. A tragic loss. Ad Mosai?

“and he died for all, that those who live might no longer live for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised.”

– Sefer Habris, By “Pinchas Der Talmud” about the life of his Rebbe, Rabbi Yehoshua, who lived in the times of the Tannaim.

He saved thousands of lives

He saved thousands of lives with his zelenko protocol. Just an hour ago there was a video put on youtube from dr zelenko from the hospital. It is well worth hearing his last message

I literally was just saying tehillim for him… wow. Baruch dayan haemes. For all the lives he has helped cured and saved especially during the virus may Hashem pay him back for all the good he has done! Amen..

So sad to read this. I remember Zev when he was doing his residency in Buffalo, he lived in our yeshiva dorm and was our Shabbas Mashpia. During the week we almost never saw him as he worked long shifts at the hospital. The only day he had off was Shabbas so he would be with the bochrim so the rosh yeshiva can go home to be with his family. He would wake us up Shabbas morning to the call of “good morning future leaders of world Jewry, time to wake up and serve hashem”. Another line I remember from… Read more »

Baruch Dayan Emet! Thank you for sharing and nice to hear the kind of person he was and I am sure you have many wonderful stories you can share. I read his book Metamorphosis on his website, as it is free there to read and was amazing! May his neshama have an Aliyah and he me a melitz yosher for all of Klal Yisroel!
He was a very unique person and not afraid to say the truth!
May we all emulate his ways and speak the Emet and live the Emet!

A hero of our generation

Thank you for all your service to humanity! I’m glad you set up a foundation to continue to help people. We were following you and your work all the way during these past couple years. Very sad today.

How sad. BDH. May his family find comfort and sollance He put his life on the line. And the line took his life. How sad. NECHUMIM !!!

June 30, 2022 6:00 pm

He was a great warrior of truth, and transitioned from introducing us to the Zelenko Protocol, which saved tens of thousands, to warning us against the dangers of the vaccine. Unlike the editors of this site, he stood up for the truth and didn’t stay silent.

June 30, 2022 6:11 pm

What is the levaya info?

Friendly and Generous
June 30, 2022 6:11 pm

For a short while he was a member of the same Shul as we were in Wesley Hills, Monsey. I remember him as lively, friendly and generous.
I also read his autobiography. I recommend it. Its called Metamorphosis.

How can we even choose words of condolence and support at this time of loss for Dr. Zelenko’s family. I believe that his light will shine upon them and hopefully also those of us who never met him, but followed his goodness and guidance — believed what he had to say and lived because of it — perhaps we will be within range of a ray now and then. A most sad and solemn day, this is.

June 30, 2022 6:37 pm

He looked somehow older then his years. I suppose the horrible threats & pressures on him took its toll. A true Jewish leader & hero, he is missed.

June 30, 2022 6:40 pm

Very sad. May he help pull the strings and bring Moshiach now!

Well done good and faithful servant. May you rejoice in the the joy of Heaven and may your family sense the comfort of your bliss to comfort them in your loss. This world is a poorer place without you yet you made your mark in giving kind succour to the many paients of your acquaintance and mankind in general with your guidance against the present contagion that affects so many. Until we meet again in that bourne beyond the hills where goodness awaits and peace is ever present.

A completely altruistic fighter for humanity
June 30, 2022 6:57 pm

Who knows how many lives he saved. Many of us, including me, took his medicine protocol during covid and taking it early after onset may very well have been the shliach to keep us out of the hospital.

Heartbroken for his family, and our country
June 30, 2022 6:58 pm

What a legacy of truth, knowledge-sharing, faith and compassion. Dr. Zelenko was and is a warrior; he is fighting for us still on the other side. Blessings to his family and all of us for the loss of this great man.

June 30, 2022 7:10 pm

may we only know of simchas

The Doctor whom we all got to know:
June 30, 2022 7:56 pm

A true hero who gave tremendous care to his fellow Jewish brothers & sisters as well as to the non Jews. He stood for what was right despite the negativity of the medical system. Many many of us took his prescribed Quercitin, Vitamin D and zinc etc and it gave us HEALTH! We will miss you but please remind Hashem that we are His children and it’s way over time to redeem us . Thank you Dr Zelenko.

Unique Soul
June 30, 2022 8:26 pm

It’t amazing to see how one person, in one lifetime, did so much:

Became Frum
Brought children into the world
Lived and worked as a frum person with a beard
Played a role in helping millions globally
Caused people to look for the truth…

All in less than 50 years

May Hashem give his neshama an aliyah and may Hashem gaurd and protect his wife and children

Hayom Yom
June 30, 2022 8:28 pm

In Today’s Hayom Yom the Rebbe brings the idea of giving away everything for the pursuit of the truth…

How fitting

How much he accomplished- only 49
June 30, 2022 9:48 pm

And the last 2 years of his life was the time that he accomplished the most.

June 30, 2022 10:04 pm

How sad it is. No words. We need the Geula Hashlaimo Vehoamitis with the coming of Moshiach now!

A life well lived!

A celebration of a life well lived! His life work of spreading Truth-Freedom-Health will live through his Foundation

What wonderful contributions he made to humanity! We are so thankful for the many lives he saved and treated these past 2 years and for standing strong in the face of so much persecution. I know his rewards in heaven will be many. Condolences and prayers for his family. He will be sorely missed!

June 30, 2022 11:17 pm

Dr Zelenko

You can’t stop now. I know there’s a plan for gollus and Hashem has calculations and reasons for things. Don’t go with shomoyims flow and be stubborn if poss. DEMAND what so many of us are pleading for, for galus to end and the geula to begin You were lamplighter of hope to all people who met you may Hashem
Comfort your family and all who knew you


July 1, 2022 12:29 am

What an incredible doctor and human being! He fought for the truth and in doing so many people were saved. I personally know at least 5 people he helped and they survived COVID despite being severely ill. May his holy soul have an aliyah.

BD"E he is my hero
July 1, 2022 1:49 am

Dr. Zelenko is a true hero in our times at the end of the day he stood up to very powerful and evil forces to save as many lives as he could, and he definitely succeeded. He is in my and many other peoples opinions a real Tzadik.

May he push for the immediate coming of moshiach.

My Heart Breaks for Your Family
July 1, 2022 2:51 am

Dear Dr Zelenko, Thank you for having had the extreme amount of shining courage necessary to freely speak the truth, to sound the alarm and to sternly counter evil, greedy big pharma, biomedical fascists and complicit multitudes of control-freak leftist politicians, all of whom are guilty of hiding the truth. This earthly world is infinitely poorer without you.

His memoir is coming out
July 1, 2022 4:46 am

June 10 it was announced his memoir is coming out in 2 months.
Its called. Zelenko: how to decapitate the serpent

Thank you
July 1, 2022 7:52 am

Thank you for being their with our questions in the height of COVID, without charge !! Always telling us to focus our trust in Hashem and to strengthen our bodies with the correct vitamins and medicine.

A true man of Chesed.
May His neshama have an Aliya

An amazing and Caring Dr larger then life
July 1, 2022 8:28 am

Dr Zev , cared very deeply about his patients and gave his life to his patients literally.

I know that all the younger Drs that trained under his guidance , said how smart , knowledgeable and caring he was truly a second to none Physician and will be sorely missed by the entire world for this and for fighting for our freedom. May his memory be for a blessing

The Zelenko Protocol
Reply to  Yakov Ainoris
July 2, 2022 3:56 pm

It works. I speak from experience and I’m so saddened by this news. Far too young, he had decades of healing to accomplish in Olam Hazeh. I can only guess he is desperately needed in Olam Habah, the World of Truth, where he will be feted by the malachim and Hashem Himself.

July 1, 2022 11:43 am

Contrary to whatever the media paints him as, or whatever you think about his controversial views, I personally know many people whose lives have been saved thanks to the Zelenko protocol.

He will be missed.

May his neshama have an aliya.

July 1, 2022 12:25 pm

This is so tragic! Ad mosai!! We need him with us! Dr Zelenko helped save so many lives, and did it purely from a place of care. He will be missed by thousands. May his neshama have an aliya and May his family have comfort with only simchas! And may we be with dr zelenko again with the coming of moshiach right now!!

He actually was 48, he would be 49 in November
