BD"H Rav Emmanuel Gettinger ZT"L

BJL It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Rav Emanuel Gettinger zt”l.  Rav Gettinger served
as the rov of Young Israel of the West Side in New York City for over 60 years. He also served with great devotion as the president of Ezras Torah. Rav Gettinger was a noted talmid chochom, who spread Torah for many decades and impacted the lives of numerous people who were influenced by his wide-ranging Torah knowledge and depth of his caring heart.  Rav Gettinger passed away today, Shushan Purim, in Chicago, where he had been residing at his daughter’s home.
The levaya will take place this Sunday, March 8th, at 2 p.m., at the Young Israel of the West Side, located at 210 West 91st Street, between Broadway and Amsterdam, in Manhattan.
Shivah will take place in Lakewood and Chicago.

Yehi zichro boruch.


  1. Kevurah was in Israel, Shiva will be in Lakewood and Chicago.

  2. We will greatly miss the Rav.
