BS”D

Oy, Baruch Dayan Ha’Emes…
Dear Mishpocho Katz, “Hamakom yinachem es’chem b’toch sha’ar aveilei Tziyon v’Yerushalayim!”
Our community’s rabbi was just speaking to us all about Rabbi Katz (they knew one another) at the beginning of Yuntif, what a special neshomo and great mind he was…
Wishing you comfort and strength in this time of difficulty.
Ad mosai, Hashem? How any more Batei Mikdash are to fall? Please send Moshiach now.
May your Patriarch’s Neshomo have a tremendous aliyah!

Sincerely,
A Fellow Yid in Connecticut

I remember Rabbi Katz from my many years at camp, where he and his wife served as directors.

As a child I was mesmerized by his shiurim. The shul was always pin drop silent when he spoke. His shiurim were fascinating to me. I remember trying to be careful with all the new dinim I learned at the shiurim he taught which I looked forward to tremendously. I especially remember his shiurim about the nine days and Tisha b’Av. He was always warm and kind.

As a bochur I was a shliach in new Haven for a year. I had a private chavrusa with Rabbi Katz almost every day. He was a very special Yid.
May Hashem comfort the family.

I will miss Rabbi Katz!

I have fond memories of Rabbi Katz as Camp Rabbi (director?) in Camp Pardas Chana in the 70’s. We learned so much from His Shiurim! And he was always with a pleasant dispostion!!

So sorry to hear about this sad news. He was my room mate when he came to the yeshivah in Kfar Chabad upon his return from that Shlichus to Russia. He shared some interesting stories with me.
His brilliant mind and memory retained all the details from that important trip.

Rabbi Binyomin Katz, obm will be very missed. He had an amazing mind, along with humility and humor! That is an unusual combination. He could do it. His classes were clear and deep at the same time. A very special person, to be proud to be in his company. Very missed. Vita & Reuven Goldstein Rehovot Israel.

Rbbi Katz was extraordinary. Kind and gentle and he was so nice to us young bochurim in New Haven and always had a good thing to tell us to entertain or inspire. He was A Mashpia to the Friediker Rebbes shliach to the young israel then. Although younger.

Passing of R. Yehoshua Falk Katz (1614)

R. Yehoshua Falk Katz authored two well-known commentaries in the area of Jewish law: Derishah and Perishah on R. Jacob ben Asher’s halachic code Arbaah Turim, and Sefer Me’iras Einayim (known by the acronym Sm”a) on R. Yosef Caro’s Shulchan Aruch (Code of Jewish Law). These commentaries are printed in all standard editions of these works.

R. Yehoshua’s wife Beila was known for her piety and erudition, and a number of original Torah explanations are attributed to her.
