Rabbi Menashe Chadad, Head Menahel of the Central Tomchei Temimim Yeshivos in Israel and respected activist, passed away on Shabbos, 15 Iyar, 5783.
He was 72 and in recent years he suffered from an illness.
Rabbi Chadad was a man devoted to education and served with great dedication for 50 years in Yeshivas Tomchei Temimim.
Born in Elul 5710 in Tunisia, he emigrated to Israel with his family when he was 8 years old.
Throughout his life, he received much direction and advice from the Rebbe. In 5730 he traveled to New York to study in the 770 Yeshiva, and shortly afterwards married his wife Chaviva.
He began his career in education in the Talmud Torah in Lod, Israel. In the 1970’s he also began working as a communal activist. Rabbi Efraim Wolf then appointed him as Head Menahel of the Talmud Torah in Lod, and throughout the years Rabbi Wolf encouraged him to perform communal work for the Chabad Mosdos.
After the passing of the activist R’ Berke Wolf, Rabbi Chadad was appointed the Menahel of the Central Yeshivos Tomchei Temimim, alongside Rabbi Menachem Lerer and Rabbi Elyokim Wolf.
He was devoted to his role as Menahel, working with dedication to raising funds for Yeshivos, and was totally dedicated to their success.
A few years later, he was appointed as a member of the Vaad of Kfar Chabad and a member of the Agudas Chassidei Chabad in Israel.
During his Levaya, it was announced that his son Rabbi Sholom Ber Chadad will be taking his position as Menahel.
