Harav Yekusiel Green, mashpia in Kfar Chabad and author of many popular seforim on Chassidus, passed away on Thursday, 2 Adar I, 5782.

He was 78 years old.

He was born on Daled Kislev, 5704, to his parents Rabbi David and Sarah Green. His mother was the daughter of the mashpia Rabbi Chaim Moshe Alperovich.

In his youth, he studied at the Talmud Torah in Kfar Chabad, and later in Tomchei Temimim in Lod. In 5723, he traveled to the Rebbe for the first time and joined the Yeshiva at 770.

After returning to Eretz Yisroel he married Rochel, daughter of Rabbi Binyamin Levin. Per the Rebbe’s instructions, the young couple settled in Kfar Chabad.

After three years of studying at the Kollel, he began teaching at Yeshivas Tomchei Temimim in Lod. In 5730, he began teaching at Beit Sefer LaMelacha in Kfar Chabad.

Rabbi Green was a prolific writer who used his talents to make Chassidus accessible to broad audiences. He authored dozens of seforim on Chassidus, including the popular ‘Maskil L’Eisan’ series on Tanya which has received wide acclaim.

He is survived by his children; Rabbi Binyomin Green, – Kfar Chabad, Mrs. Chana Kurant – Kfar Chabad, Mrs. Nechama Lieberow – Crown Heights, and Mrs. Leah Friedman – Kfar Chabad, and grandchildren.

He was predeceased by his wife Rochel two years ago.

The Levaya will take place Thursday night in Kfar Chabad.
