Rabbi Pinchos Weberman, President of the Orthodox Rabbinical Council of South Florida, and founder of congregation Ohev Shalom in Miami Beach, passed away on Wednesday, 28 Tammuz, 5782.
He was 92 years old.
Rabbi Weberman founded the Ohel Shalom congregation in Miami and served as the rov for 62 years.
He served as a chaplain for Miami Beach Police for decades and was also the founder of the Miami Beach Eruv Council.
When the existing Miami Mikva began to deteriorate, Rabbi Weberman raised the money to rebuild it. Despite strong opposition from a senior rabbi, he succeeded in rebuilding the mikva according to the highest standard of halacha, and in line with the views of the Rebbe Rashab.
He merited a close relationship with the Rebbe and received guidance from the rebbe in his communal work.
He is survived by his children, Sarah Nitki, Eli Weberman, Dovid Weberman, Shaya Weberman, Brocha Friedman, Shoshana Dubinsky, Miriam Wiener, Zalman Weberman, Chani Gniwish, Shlomo Weberman, Brendy Aron, Bentzion Weberman, Bassy Lapciuc, Yisroel Weberman, and Hudy Jaimovitch.
The levaya will take place in Eretz Yisroel.
Baruch Dayan Haemes.
