Rabbonim, mashpi’im, and prominent figures from Crown Heights and other communities paid condolence visits to the Wilhelm family, who are sitting shiva after their father Rabbi Zushe Wilhelm, where they paid tribute to his life of learning and spreading Torah.

Rabbi Wilhelm served as the longtime menahel of Oholei Torah Mesivta, where he educated generations of students. He also served as the head of the Lma’an Yishmeu Smicha Program, and authored a number of works on Halacha and Chassidus.

Throughout his decades of spreading Torah, Rabbi Wilhelm became acquainted with many rabbonim and mashpi’im, who he would bring to test the bochurim in Oholei Torah, or to test the participants in the smicha program, building strong connections with many of them.

Following his passing, many of the rabbonim visited the shiva house and related how they had seen his love and passion for learning Torah. Among the visitors on Monday and Tuesday were Harav Yosef Heller, Harav Moshe Bogomilsky, Rabbi Yehuda Krinsky, Rabbi Moshe Kotlarsky, among countless others.

Also visiting were two prominent visitors from outside of Crown Heights, who traveled specially to be menachem ovel: The Lelover Rebbe of Boro Park and Harav Gavriel Zinner, author of the Nitei Gavriel series.

The Wilhelm family is planning on putting out a publication for the shloshim of their father, and ask all those who have memories of Rabbi Wilhelm to share it at RabbiWilhelm.com/memories. Also available on that site is a full archive of Rabbi Wilhelm’s publications, published over the past decades.

The family thanks all those that are reaching out to support us during this difficult time. The family finds comfort in the continuation and perpetuation of the organizations that were close to his heart.
