Yaakov Zilberman, a Lubavitcher chossid who was raised in the central Israeli village of Kfar Chabad and lived in Tel Aviv, passed away on Tuesday, 10 Elul 5782.
He was 54 and battled an illness.
Zilberman, known for his constant smile, was a yirei shamayim who regularly learned Torah and Chassidus. He had a humble personality.
Zilberman has been presenting short video shiurim on weekly Parsha, yomim tovim and Jewish concepts garnering close to 16,000 views on YouTube.
The last shiur he gave was two months ago and he was seen wearing a hospital gown. Ignoring the surroundings, he spoke about Shavuos with the same energy as showed in his previous 260 videos. He concluded it with a call “to make an effort to become better than we previously were.”
